I'm a 73 year old guy and just bought an old 2009 Vstar 950 T and trying to get riding again. Had a golf ball sized tumor removed from my brain last June and gave up riding and sold my old bike. So far I'm just getting on and off and trying to orient myself again but I hope I can ride in a few weeks. Never had Yamaha but my brother has a Vstar 1300 and loves it. I'm sure I'll need a lot of help but will try not to bug everyone too much.
