Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum. I've been looking for a new Venture forum since I traded my Raider in for my Trans Continental Venture. After creeping around this site I felt like this was just what I was looking for.

I'm 55 years old from Fairless Hills Pa, about 20 miles outside of Philadelphia. I'm the father of 4 and the Grandfather of 5. I've been riding since I was 12, I rode sport bikes as a younger man. I stopped riding after my first child was born. But purchased a new bike in 2008. It was a Yamaha Raider S, I loved that bike and rode it for 11 years. It was a real attention getter. I did a lot of custom modes on it over the time I rode it. Just before leaving to go to Ocean City Marylands bike week I blew out a rear bearing and could not get a replacement for a couple of days. I was working the local dealer over on a 2018 SVTC that had been on the dealer floor for over a year. Well, now he had the upper hand but he really wanted my bike. So we made the deal happen and road directly down to OCMD for bike fest. Nice 170 mile ride to break the bike in.
I know i have over 70K miles riding, I don't like riding with humongous groups. Takes away too must riding pleasure do to worrying about moving the group through traffic. Love this forum so far, it is very active.

Welcome from Wisconsin like most of us you are experienced on bikes and in life. I enjoy just riding county trunk highways just to see where they go. I have owned bikes of all sizes and absolutly love my 1100 Vstar Classic. It renewed my enthusiasm for riding after i sold my 1800VTX.

Welcome @Venture113 from North Carolina.
I too am fortunate enough to have one of those beauties! You’re gonna LOVE this bike. BTW, what color did you get? I didn’t see you mention that?
We’re getting quite a gaggle if these bikes and some Eluders too. We had 3 SVTC at our Waynesville rally last year. Hope to see you there to make it even more!
