Hey everybody.

Just wanted to introduce myself and say hi. My nickname is Fish (since my last name is Fisher) and most of my friends call me as such. I have a 2008 Yamaha VStar 1100 Classic, I bought it brand new earlier last year. I was born and raised in NJ but enlisted in the Marine Corps, so I'm now serving active duty in NC.

I've been on a few different car forums before, but never owned a VStar. This is also my first Cruiser, though I've been riding for 8 years or so now. My last bikes were a 2001 Kawasaki ZRX1200R, and an 88 Kaw KLR650, and I also spend decent time riding my dad's bikes, which include (or included) a 99 Kaw ZRX1100, an 06 Honda CBR1100RR, an 05(?) KTM Duke 2, and a 79 Kaw SLR650. I've ridden many others but those are what I spent the most time on.

Lookin forward to getting some good info and meeting good people here. Ride safe, my friends!

Weclome to the 4M!
Joined the Marines just to get out of NJ? That confirms my belief that people will do ANYTHING to get out of NJ :D

Strange Avatar - might that be some kind of mutant Fisher-Cat? :D

Up in Maine Fishers look like this:

Haha well honestly the only real problem I ever had with Jersey is the climate. I HATE the cold. And the Jersey shore is nice and all (guidos are easy to ignore), but once you go to Myrtle Beach once, the JS and go screw itself.

And my old FD had a Fisher plow for their F350. Great plow! Hated the truck though.
