I'm 57 years old and back riding again after a 35 year (or so) hiatus. I bought a barely-ridden 2008 V-Star 1300 June 23 after completing my rider safety course and getting my motorcycle endorsement. Currently driving the "lot rot" bugs out, doing my own maintenance and fixes and could use some wisdom from the forum. Don't know how much I can contribute bike-wise, but I'm always ready with an opinion or life-experience anecdotes! I look forward to participating.
