This was a tough decision to decide on. I generally stay behind the scenes keeping this site chugging along. Joe, is the one that gives out the amazing wealth of knowledge he has. I've put an amazing amount of time into the bringing together this website and not to mention have footed the bills a few times. I've kept us hacker free for a damn long time. I never ask much of you guy/gals. Only if we get in crunch time and the site needs a little help. Ive never asked for the ridiculous thousands I have seen another site ask for.. ridiculous is the perfect word. I even removed ads for those that log in, severely cutting revenue. Sites been about helping people, not making money. I feel bad actually doing this.. but I need help. I have gastroparesis brought on from diabetes(20+ years). I've been struggling with this nightmare for over 3 years. Finally diagnosed beginning this year. Look it up. Look up worst cases... that's me. Ive lost 60 lbs since January. 28 days ago the company I've worked for for many years found their dirty lil way to fire me. I was approved for up to 3 days off a week for fmla.. that really pissed them off. So illegally fired, savings drained from medical bills, bad diabetic now with no insurance. I'm in deep shit. That is politely saying it unfortunately. If any of you guys cant help please at least keep me in your thoughts. If this was wrong, me asking for help, my apologies. I'm declining in health fast, and unemployment hasn't came through yet and that in itself is a nightmare. Anyone who can, please donate to the website. This time it goes to help me. Thank you everyone. Again, my apologies for asking. I honestly don't know what to do or where to turn.

Virago Taillights Conversion to V-Star
V- Star Taillights On A Virago
|Just finished the rear turn signals job on my Virago. Looked at my Virago Taillights, just thought I would give the owners out there another idea on the move. Thanks to the new V-Star and Road Star, there are some new parts out there on Ebay and in salvage yards. I got the rear turn signals, mount and taillight for a V-Star off ebay. Ended up with $75.00 invested in good used parts. The good part is when you get over the shock of drilling holes in your fine looking machine, the new parts cover the old stock holes pretty good . I got some plat plastic plugs to put in two of the stock holes, and they don't really show at all. I also added a chrome grill to the new light and it made a great job look even better.Hope this gives someone out there a new way they like better. I have also sent you a couple of pictures so you can see the job, for yourself. Oh and I added two small red reflecters where the old turn signals went. You can never get to much accent for the night.Want everyone to know just where I am, safety first. Use the photos how ever you think is best . Just wanted to share my good fortune. I'm very proud of my Virago and I love riding it more than any bike I have ever riden. And been on bike for about 40 years.|
