I follow Billy Sheean's works since I started playing and he, more than a great influence, is a great idol of my life. I can easily say he's the second idol of my whole life!!!

I've watched his awesome show with Winery Dogs(Rio de Janeiro) and, after that, I waited for some reception from the band. Even after I heard about ten times "they won't come for the fans", I stayed and I wasn't leaving until someone take me away! After some time, I heard screams "BILLY! BILLY!" and I did it too without knowing what was happening. When I could look above about 15 guys in my front, there he was with his pleasant humble smile.

I could say some little words to him while he was pulled by someone and I could give my original CD(largely influenced by him) while he watched me closely. And then he said "Hey, I know you", he was pulled away and I fell down to the ground(really) crying for something that I can't explain.

For all of you, I can only say one thing: if you have a dream and you think you'll never make it true, you are WRONG!

Thanks, Billy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Yes, He is always nice with the fans, also wery humble, It was a great experience to meet him, and see how awesome he is not only on the stage as a person

  • The first time I met Billy, was when he was in Talas 1979. I have met/talked to him a few times over the span of his career,when he had a gig in buffalo. And he has always been the same humble person and musician on all accounts.

  • Thank you!!! Billy is fantastic! He desirves all these respectable fans.

Went for my first bike ride of the year . Only 25 miles. How to I feel today , remember baby steps ? Today's plans , going to over look where I had stopped on my last two builds make a list . I'm behind on building two custom mini bikes builds . Need to start planning getting the parts ordered . Afterwards practice on baby steps .

        SOOOO frustrated. I installed my wolo air horn, finally. It worked 2 blasts, then I tighted all the screws and all that. Then boom, sounds like an air wrench or something. So i rushed to a hardware store and bought another - boom say damn thing after full install. I was following a forum member (smokenJoe) who said he didn't use a relay at all.. Well i'm not sure, but both of mine are fried... Now time to try and return them to amazon / harbor freight stating they were busted.

        • None of you should be ashamed for asking. After a few beers I'll go into my rant about why we cannot do shit any longer but for example: Had a Java enterprise architect sitting behind me that was a nice guy but didn't have a clue how to do disk brakes. Mind you he was probably smarter than me by a factor of 10 but was never shown the process or principle. Anyway, my standard fee of beer and pizza applied and afterwards he ended up doing the brakes on his wife's car as well!! Teach a man to fish!!!!!

        A quick question. I figure if anyone might have an opinion the Attitude junkies might... (sorry if it's a little off of the Attitude topic). Has anyone here either set up their Attitude for BEAD tuning or used a DiMarzio Model One neck humbucker (the old fave, eh Billy Sheehan?) on a bass set up that way?I have several basses with the Model One installed (love that pickup) and wondered how it handles a low B string. Obviously they never made it in a 5-string configuration. Thanks in advance.

        • Understood Adam Castle. For all who may be interested this is the piece w/ Paul Gilbert that Billy Sheehan was referring to ( I assume). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NITX8WdOHWk

        • I was wondering if it was that, It would make sense! Intersting to see how the EEEE tuning on bass is done, LOVE that tone on the Attitude, one of my favourite parts of the set.

          Still remember September 12th, 2009 London! ;)

        • I had an Attitude standard strung like that for awhile. I did modify the nut. I had a Dimarzio Model P in it. Had a decent tone on the B. Good for recording, but I didn't like it live.

La bujia en corto (empeza por ahi que es lo mas barato y facil.) te chupe aire por los rulemanes del sigueñal o se te haya rayado el cilindro. carburacion tambien puede ser pero tendria q andar a algun regimen. las bobinas de baja saben joder tambien en el vrr.

          • revisa el cable naranja (creo que es ese color) que entra a la bobina de alta (la que esta abajo del tanque que en la otra punta tiene el capuchon para la bujia) el cable ese en mi moto estaba a punto de cortarse donde entra en la bobina le mande 2 o 3 capas de termocontraible y quedo firme.

            HEEELP! I hope one or two of you guys (or girls, of course) can help me out with this next problem... Since a few days my bike has been smelling of petrol. Today, when I came home (not from a ride on my bike), the smell was worse than it had been and I could even smell it while standing in my back garden (while the bike was inside my garage...) and my neighbour told me he had already checked his bike, as his garage was smelling of (my) petrol too. I checked, but I can't find any wet spots, indicating a giant leak. But still, I'm not feeling too well about it.

            Do your Bulldogs start smelling really nasty too, with high temperatures like we have been having in Holland these last few days, or should I run a check on my petrol system?

            By the way, I have the impression the smell comes from around the choke.

              @Broos: Full tank... CHECK!

              Side stand... CHECK!

              Would life really be so simple? You may just have made my day! All I need to do now, is to convince my girlfriend that I really MUST make a 2K test drive. Just to be sure...

              Thank you guys for your helpfull comments!

            • Hi you boys and girls, Here's a short (ahum) update on this post:

              After I found out that petrol was actually dripping from my tank I regularly opened up my tank to release the pressure that had builded up in the tank. Only, after a while I saw my tank was also dripping when it wasn't a hot day. So before my family and I went on our holiday, I took off my tank to check if I could find the problem. I then thought that some seal had to be replaced, so a few days ago I took the tank to my Yamaha dealer to let them check out and solve the problem...

              Today they called to say that they had discovered some sort of 'crack' (not being drugs, for all you smart asses...) that had probably been 'repaired' with some putty in the past, which had let loose from the high temperatures. They will now try and neatly weld the crack.

            • Check for the valve rocker caps, some are near the exhaust(above) and when they leak(because of the extreme temp of air cooled..)..they leak imperceptible over the exhaust and the smell is quite strong...so check that too :))

            Hi good people — YAMAHA Attitude Ltd

            Hi good people!

            Its a bit too much in advance, but I'm planning a vacation to Orlando next March/April, and I plan to get and LTD2 while there =D

            So for those of you in the US, can you tell me a range of prices to expect? I don't mind used (but playable of course!!). I need to make some calculations since I have to pay a freaking 50% tax on the bill in Argentina Customs X___X

            But the only Attitudes on sale here are used LTD1s, one for the equivalent of US$2700 and another one at the stupid price of US$6400 !!!

            So if I can get something better than a used LTD1, I'd like to take a chance bringing it here, any info on street prices will be really useful !

            Thanks a lot in advance for reading me out, it's still several months early and exchange rates may kill me without warning, but since I'm booking tickets soon I'm already assessing the options.

            Sorry for the long post!

                What a shock — Yamaha V-Star riders

                What a shock.

                This is what happened to my '05 650 Classic. Hit a mild bump and the bike basically broke in half under me, so suddenly became an owner of an insanely-lowered hardtail. In the rain.

                Apparently, the bike was sitting at PO's for way too long(i bought it in non-running condition) and moisture got into a stress crack at the neck of the shock, further rusting it out. So it was basically hanging by a thread and not visible from the outside.

                But all in all, my first 300 miles riding my first bike has been fun. Mostly.

                Ride on.

Am totally gutted! Halfway through my best ever season too. I'm not even supposed to drive on the road until this is sorted so will probably not even be there to cheer, so wish everyone concerned a fantastic, safe meeting.

                  Thought I'd share: I got a new bike for Christmas...a Victory Vegas 8-Ball. This meant my Vstar 1300 was going to go up for sale. I really like my Vstar...the Victory is badass! Fastforward to a couple of weeks ago...we went to Santa Fe NM for the weekend 300 miles round trip. I don't have bags for my Victory yet so I chose the Star for the trip. I had been complaining about the hard seat of the Victory. The seat of the Star is like riding a Caddy. We get to Santa Fe (after several rest stops...the other half has a Victory too). Enjoy our weekend, its time to go home. In the parking lot of the hotel, we argue about who gets to ride the Star...the seat is waaay more comfortable. I give in. I have no need for two bikes but needless to say, there is no for sale sign on the Star and I just re-registered for another year. :)

                    I read and hear people talk about HD leak oil!! I am not bashing HD. I just have a funny story. On my way home from picking up my daughter I notice an older sportster coming up on the side of my truck. I notice the right side of his rear tire was covered in oil and there was a fast drip almost stream from under the bike. So the nice guy that I am I rolled down the widow to tell him about the leak and the oily tire. His respond was " ya it started yesterday and that he would take right hand turn slower as he lit up a smoke. Then the light turn green. He acted like it was know big deal as if it was normal.

                      Hello gents, My first post will be a sad one. I need to sell my c3 for bureaucratic reasons. Was originally mis titled as a motorcycle which I got away with by not tagging it. Now there are Scooter registrations available where I live..however I cannot reclassify my c3. Please, do not offer suggestions or resolutions to this as I have been seeking one for a long time. The only way to ride my bike now is to get my MC license which I have no intent on or have the time and money to do. If anyone close enough to Baltimore MD would like it for parts or otherwise, I am entertaining ALL offers.

                      • I'll get pics upon specific request. Currently stored at my MC licensed friend house.. they had to move it for me. Yeah If ride it with the tags on now, it looks suspicious and I am technically riding a motorcycle without a license but i cannot get a scooter sticker because it is a "motorcycle"... even though every other c3 in the state is Scooter.....

                      • They did that crap in Idaho too. I am living off temporary license every year until I feel like taking the final test. In Missouri you don't need a MC license....it's the land of freedom.

                      I'm a new rider (approx. 300 miles) and I've noticed that my hands right around my thumb where it meets the hand (both top and bottom) get sore. It's far worse on my right hand but does get a bit sore on my left. I rode for about 2 hours each way on a trip Sunday and by the halfway point on my way home I was almost in tears from the pain in my throttle hand. It was ok Monday and I rode to work (40 minutes), but now two days later my right hand hurts so badly that I can barely pick anything up with it.

                      Am I gripping the throttle too hard? Is this just because it's using my hand muscles in a way they aren't used to? Could my grips be too wide (I have ISO Flame grips from Kuryakyn on the bike)? I ordered an ISO throttle boss (paddle that allows you to throttle control with the heel of the hand instead of fingers) and I'm hoping that will help. Has anyone else had this problem when starting out?

                        Has anyone had any dealing with Gregg Zivney?

                        I ordered floorboard extensions on 5/29 and he has still not shipped them to me and refuses to refund my money. I was told AFTER I called to ask where my shipment was, this was about 3 weeks after ordering and the FIRST time he let me know that he was behind. He's told me once that they shipped so I waited 12 days and call back after no info was ever updated through the USPS website and he told me he printed the label and just forgot to send them out. He was suppose to do that the next day and still has not sent them out. I've emailed him numerous times asking for my money back and he just tells me he'll send the extensions to me.

                        HE IS A HORRIBLE BUSINESSMAN!! DO NOT BUY FROM THIS GUY!!

                          There's something about pushing that start button, your bike comes alive, and when you're riding it, it becomes an existential part of you, and there's no other feeling like it in the world... I've been riding for over thirty years here in Los Angeles, and I certainly had my share of spills and crashes due to negligence of other drivers, and my last accident 7 years ago, where I T-boned a truck who ran a stop sign going around 50 mph on my Gixer 600 head first into his door beam, resulting in breaking my back in two places and numerous other injuries, but it's the romance I have with motorcycles that keeps bringing me back... This is my drug, baby! Unless I'm dead or paralyzed, you'll never keep me from riding! Be safe out there, my friends and Keep on riding! By the way, this my baby, "Jenny" Cheers!

I was just talking about forums and how back biting and bitchy most of them are and then there's this one :) one of the best discussion / interest pages Ive been on. Everyone is helpful, gives advise, and is genuinely supportive when someone asks a question or even posts a picture of their pride and joy. Is it bikers in general, the way the page is run, its members or the fact we are all brothers and sisters of the Vstar family or all the fore mentioned. I love this page. Keep up the good work.

                              REPOST — Yamaha Sniper MX 135 150i Owners (SniperMX Philippines Visitors Page)

                              (REPOST)

                              VISA NI LOLO :

                              This is a true story taken from one of the most read newspaper in the Philippines .

                              A 70-year old ‘Lolo’ from the province was accompanied by a Grandson to the US Embassy in Manila for his VISA interview.

                              The Lolo spoke not a word of English so the grandson translated for him. The Consul told the young

                              man to ask his grandfather why he wanted to go to the States.

                              “Bakit daw ho ninyo gustong pumunta sa Amerika?” The grandson translated.

                              “Sabihin mo gusto kong makita yung mga anak ko doon.”

                              “He said he wants to see his children there.”

                              Fair enough, that’s what the lolo’s application indicated.

                              The Consul had another question. “Ask him why does he have to go there? Why can’t his children just

                              come and visit him here?”

                              The grandson translated this in Tagalog.

                              Lolo replied: “Sabihin mo kasi dito pinanganak yung mga anak ko. Nakita na nila ang Pilipinas. Gusto ko namang makita ang Amerika bago ako mamatay.”

                              (Translation: “Tell him, my children were born here. They’ve seen the Philippines already. I just want to see America before I die.”)

                              The HEARTLESS Consul was unimpressed as he declared, devoid of any emotion, that he was rejecting the visa application “because the applicant was unable to speak any word of English.”

                              “Reject daw yung visa ninyo kasi hindi daw kayo marunong mag-Ingles.”

                              The lolo was equally unimpressed. “Sabihin mo ito sa kanya at huwag na huwag mong papalitan ang

                              sasabihin ko: “Putang ina niya, bakit siya nandidito eh hindi naman siya marunong mag Tagalog! ?”

                              Translated, “He said: You son of a bitch, how come you are here… you do not know how to speak in Tagalog!?”

                              Taken aback, sense of humor still intact, the consul relented and approved lolo’s visa application in pronto.
