    Bought a bike yesterday...

    2003 V-Star 1100, 14k miles. $4000. Windshield, cover, helmet, gloves, and backpack. Very good condition. A little over priced according to NADA but the seller is a Marine DI at Parris Island with a preemy baby just home from the hospital. Soft spot in my heart for Marines.
    No reserve. No retreat. No regrets.

    For those who have fought for it, freedom has a sweetness the protected will never know.

    A walker's a lot cheaper. Medicare even pays for part of it.

    I had a couple back in the day, like 1972.......I had a Honda Superhawk.
    I would never get on another bike though, takes too long to heal.
    My theory on em is, your gonna wreck, its just how bad is it gonna be.

    Ditto. It's amazing how resilient a young body is. Got hit head-on by a car, riding my bike when I was 18, and "limped" away from it, walking out of the ER. Flew through the air maybe 30' or so before hitting the pavement.

    Had the bolts rattle loose out of the front fender once. Fender dropped, locking up the front wheel at about 40 MPH at about that same age.

    The last one happened about age 40, when I turned through a trail of motor oil on the road. Still have a piece of my elbow floating around in there from that one.

    That's when I decided I didn't want to be Evel-Knevel.

    The Star series of bikes are very good. You will enjoy it very much. I've had a couple VStars over the last 10 years and just purchased a Star Raider a couple months ago after a few years on sportbikes.
