I started riding in '67. Rode for 20 years then went dry for another 20 plus. Back on the bike and loving it again. Bought a new v-star classic. So far it seems to be a great bike. Did my first oil change. I was concerned about how my break-in oil looked. But, that was why I wanted to do my own maintenance work. I don't know what the shop put in but I know what I put in. Love my Yamahog!
