Re: Motorcycle Gloves... brand suggestions?

I have an issue with gloves always being too short for my thumb... I've tried many brands but haven't had a lot of success. I was so frustrated that I ended cutting off the end of the thumbs all together. At least in the summer you can get away with that. Winter is another story...I have heated Harl...

The weather cooperated and it was a great time had by those in my group. Due to recent surgery I wasn't able to go on the ride but made a contribution to this worthy cause. I am a member of Star Touring and Riding and one of our members is involved in the executive of the new ride for prostate cance...

Bucks Lowers for 950 V Star

Does anyone have a link to Bucks Lowers? I have been having trouble linking to his site to order some for my 950 V Star. The dealer has exchanged my quick release windshield for a standard one so now Bucks Lowers should work. :D

Bar Snakes

I am thinking of getting a bar snake to reduce the vibration in my custom handle bars for my new 950 Vstar. Is there anything I should know? How do you install it? :roll:

Windshield options for 950 Vstar

I have been experiencing severe wind buffeting around my helmet as a result of the wind shield. I have tried a taller one but with no success. Riding with no wind shield at all, takes care of the buffeting but the force of the wind is too much for me especially riding long distances. One of the girl...

The trouble with Yamaha accessories are the prices.
After market accessories are about 50% less than Yamaha's .

What did you decide on?

back rest

In customized my 950 Vstar with Yamaha's quick release back rest and rack. It is easy to use, and I am happy with how sturdy the construction is. Has anyone had issues with the chrome around the speedometer on the tank flashing from below when you ride? I am finding it unbearable and am considering ...

Mustang seat

I choose the Mustang seat with the back rest and it is very comfortable to sit in. Now I am working on the handle bars, then it will be perfect! :)

Heat reducer

One thing I wasn't expecting was how much heat comes off my new bike,especially in slow traffic. Having gone from a 750 Honda Shadow that was liquid cooled was a real shock! Is that something that you have to live with? Or is there something that you can do that cools the engine? :frusty:

Mustang seat

I have had my new 950 Vstar for 1 1/2 weeks and have put 1330 klms on it.
When I purchased the bike I had it customized with a Mustang seat. I love it! it does push you forward a little and that is what I wanted. It was the best choice that I ever made.

950 Vstar

It's finally here! My new bike, all the extras....it sure rides nice! Windshield is a little small, and I will probably need some risers.

950 Vstar

Tomorrow is the day...I get my New Blue 950 Custom Vstar! It has been a frustrating experience working with the dealer to get things right. Started off that they scratched the rear fender. They had to send it out to get painted. When the seat that I ordered came in was not what was in the box. They ...

If Blues2Cruise is interested in a ride another time, I'm game to come along. There's always the ride for pie to Chilliwack Airport. I didn't think that the pie was that great, but the ride was... and then there is the quest for good Gelato, non dairy. So far the best place is in Fort Langley... :D
