  2004 Yamaha V-Star 1100 Classic (California edition)
HI everyone

Hey everybody. Just joined up and like the site. It looks like people are pretty friendly.

I've been riding since 2004 but only intermittently. We purchased a V-Star 1100 as the 1100 size seemed about the smallest that would comfortably hold us both. My wife is 6 feet tall and it didn't work out as well as planned, even with floorboard extenders her legs get cramped after a couple of hours so we mostly do short rides.

I did take a couple of good solo rides around the US in the first couple of years but not much since. I spent most of the summer last year trying to get it working again. Took the engine apart and tried to do my own carburetor sync. After several months of work and failures I gave up and took it to a shop, so I am looking forward to riding this summer instead of looking at a pile of parts in the garage!

I was going to post some pics but I realized I haven't taken any in the past few years, so I will have to post some oldies. The bike hasn't changed much...

Well, I could not get the image to work. I will try again I guess..
