Well the time is come where I need to part my ways with the Vstar.
Its a great bike and totally reliable but I needed more versatility where I live and decided to get a dual sport. I will still frequent this forum because of the great topics and conversations. Probably won't post as much though!

Which dual-sport are you considering?
I already bought a 2004 Kawasaki KLR 650.
Pretty much a bullet proof bike and most of the mods are done.
Went on a few weekend rides and do like the versatility of being able to go off road.

Good choice ,you can't go wrong with the KLR. I've got a 2007 that I've put almost 40,000 miles on.

I only have 17,000 on this one. Doing the valve adjustment on it and are within spec but on the tight end of spec. I am going to adjust them to the loose end of the spec.

Yes they seem to be. There was a reason the military uses them in the middle east. The saying goes "they are the swiss army knife of motorcycles"!
