Nice ride! Is it white or silver? It's kind of hard to tell from the picture...

It is silver.. i chose silver as i dont see many of them over here. lots of black ones.. then three days after i bought it i saw a silver one ride down the road and when i saw it i was glad i got silver.. looked sweet. :)

Looks nice and clean. There are a ton of things you can do with the 650 to personalize it.

RE: My First Bike 2014 650 custom.
yeah it sure is clean... first brand new vehicle ive ever bought.. and yes ive been reading on all the bits you can do to customize them. i dare say a bobber conversion will be done evntually. but for now i have it booked in to get the exhaust rebaffled, as i like the standard pipe look. and some straight bars.. (drag bars i think there called)
thanks for the nice comments.

Congratulations welcome to the Star family.

As Keith said you have some great resources here for when the customization bug bites. Enjoy the ride, can't wait to hear about your Vstar experiences.

My 07' 650 Custom was my first brand new vehicle too. Let me know what you decide on the bars. I can most likely get you what you need, or know where you can find it. Here is a straight bar on Ebay

Nice ... I bought a used black 2013 a few weeks ago. I only got to ride it a few times before storing it already for the winter. I have never seen the silver ... Only black. I added bags 60$ and have a windshield from eBay that is yet to be installed.

RE: My First Bike 2014 650 custom.
thanks guys, First silver one id seen too. so i snapped it up. Cant wait to meet some people over here in australia to go for a ride with..One question though, im sure its covered somewhere and i have read about it, but i notice when ive ridden for a few k's (miles) it does get a bit ticky... kinda reminds me of driving my old 1979 datsun before i learnt what feeler gauges where so i could adjust the tappers. worried me a bit as it is so new, but then i read it is normal and try fully synthetic oil.. any thoughts.

Just bought a silver one myself; a brand new 2014 650 Custom that was still taking up space on the showroom floor. I can hardly wait to ride it, but it will have to wait until spring!
