Hi everyone.  I'm enjoying the site and the useful information.  My first bike was a 2005 Vstar 1100 Silverado.  It was a quality machine that met its end on my ride home from the office one night.

I was grateful to walk away with only bruised ribs and a broken thumb but after only a couple of thousand miles, I wasn't done yet.

This time I wanted fuel injection, liquid cooling, and ABS in that similar, comfortable cruiser package... on a modest budget.

 

I bought my 2012 Interstate in March of 2018 with 12K on the odometer and I haven't looked back.  It really is a great machine!  When time and energy permit, I do most of the maintenance, from oil changes, to brake pads, to the valve adjustment I did two weeks ago.

A new coat of paint would be nice as the last owner did not tend to it all that well.  I'll update my signature with a list of modifications and accessories but in the meantime here are a couple of photos from before the upgrades.  Cheers.
