Hello from New Braunfels, TX!

Heyo!
I've been trying to figure out why I couldn't post for a while now, guess I finally got it figured out, haha. I've had my VN900 Classic for a few months now and am absolutely loving it! It's Candy Imperial Blue and I just installed a Mustang 79417 seat on it as well as modifying the factory exhaust with the 8 drilled holes in the baffle standard protocol as it would seem. I've got a Cobra sissy bar on the way for the old ball & chain as well as some saddlebags that I just purchased from a member on here so I can finally start riding without a backpack to work! From here I am just trying to figure out what my next steps will be. This seems like a very good forum/community of people with a wealth of knowledge that I'm sure I'll use frequently! I'll post pictures in the VN900 section as soon as possible, thanks for having me and for all the future information I'm sure to ask all of you for.

Welcome to the forum JB!

I was close to your neck of the wood last weekend. Sure are some nice roads for two wheeled therapy!

I just heard about the "Three Sisters" today for the first time that is supposed to be pretty amazing. I'm from TN, so I miss the Dragon (Deals Gap), hopefully this will be somewhere close to as much fun as that!

I definitely want to ride the tail of the Dragon. But, that is a pretty good trip from N. TX!

The 3 Sisters is where I was last weekend. It was a lot of fun. Here is my write up and some pics. You could probably make it a day trip!

Thought I'd go ahead and post up a couple pictures since I just got done giving her a bath!







So far all I have done are the Mustang 74917 seat, "Stage 2" exhaust (or whichever stage I'm at with 8 holes...), and red rear turn signal lenses. Saddlebags are on the way and I'm deciding on which of the different crash bars I want to go with. I'm sure more will be done over time but I feel like it looks pretty good for just the simple things I have done.
Also thinking about taking the Vulcan badges and Kawasaki sticker off, but I can't decide...
