The tassel wearing I'll let the wife handle.

This just makes more sense for my commute.

I was wearing my tire square.

The V-Star is a great bike. I owned one for 3 years without a single issue. If you find that you are a searching for another gear on the highway or just want better high speed cruising manners, look into increasing the air intake. I modified mine myself, but there are several companies out there with options. If you are looking to really trick it out look up Pacific Coast Star.

Awesome. I will check into both.

This is why motohouston rocks.

Ah yes, the MotoHouston cruiser revolution. Slowly but surely it's coming.

Nice bike, by the way. Now the last thing you need to complete the package is one of these. The Biker Get-Back - How every geriatric with a cruiser defends their right to wear tassles.
