Newbie from Cypress, TX

Hi all! I am a total newbie, never owned a bike and only rode one in my riding course. I should be picking up my new bike tomorrow, hopefully!

I am looking a a 2013 Yamaha V Star 250. It is beautiful and I cannot wait to be able to ride around on it.

Looking to get some useful information on this site since I am the only person in my family that rides. My husband will hopefully be riding soon but I will be doing it first!

Welcome aboard - Excellent choice for a first bike too. Have you looked at the VStar 650? Its also pretty newbie friendly along with having enough power so that you don't get bored with it too quickly.
