  1. Hi guys,

    New to the thread.
    I'm from the SE burbs in Melbourne.
    Got my L's last week and am hoping to get a vstar 650 custom soon.
    My bro just recently got his L's as well, then I saw the victories at sandown, and realized that I need me one of those, so @36 yrs of age, I did it!
  2. Howdy and welcome aboard.
  3. Welcome to a lifetime of addiction to bikes and riding!
  4. Addicted is right!
    Not been able to get bikes outta my head even when I'm sleeping!
  5. welcome aboard never to young or old for bikes :]
  6. Welcome to NR, Bam Bam.

    Good buddy of mine started on a V-star 650 custom few years back and has now stepped up to an 1100 Yammy cruiser. Loves it to bits.

    Stay upright, pal.
  7. Welcome bam bam. Enjoy getting out on two wheels.
  8. Thanks guys!
  9. Welcome to NR & welcome to the fascinating world of bikes...

    Good choice for the bike as well...I'm biased as I got the same one in 2011. Still got it after about 32k kms.
  10. Nice! It's good to hear so much positive about this bike! In fact, I don't think I've heard any bad!

  11. After I started going to the Saturday practice, found out that a lot of NR members had the V-star 650 as their first bike.

    Hope you've got your gear sorted out as well.
  12. Spent the last few months sorting gear. Just focused on 1 thing at a time and researched the heck out of everything. Tried stuff on etc..
    Just got pants left to get as the budget allows.
    All good quality stuff.
