2005 Yamaha V-Star 650
I have wanted to ride a motorcycle for as long as I can remember but it was always one of those things that I considered to be way in the future or just a fantasy. I realized that I was checking out all of the bikes I'd pass on the road and thinking how awesome it was when I would see women riding and I was starting to become obsessed! So I decided to take the MSF course to see how I would do and decide after that whether I'd get a bike or not. I was really nervous during the course but got better and better as it went along and ended up doing really well on the test! So after researching all kinds of different bikes I found some V-Star 650's in my area and test rode a couple. I loved mine as soon as I saw her! She's low to the ground and feels great weight-wise. I am 5'5" and my feet reach the ground easily. I bought her about 3 months ago (at age 30) and haven't logged too many miles yet because I'm trying to take it one step at a time and be safe. But I love my bike and am looking forward to many many miles ahead!!
