Rode Shadow to work today. She was my first and still my favorite. To clarify, I've had my own for about 6 months now, been reading for almost a year now, and in January I got my first - 2004 Honda Shadow Aero 750 with 16k miles, but in shiny gorgeous condition, and I haven't had a hiccup or bump since I got her!
My work ride is 45 up the interstate from Deerfield Beach to Palm Bch Gardens. The reason for my ride today is my wife and I work at the same company and always carpool together, but she had a half day for a doc's appt and so I got to "ride" separately!
It's supposed to be rainy here in South Florida all day today (all week, too) but it was nice on the way up and I'm just prayin' it stays that way for the ride home!
Picked up a Shadow ACE Tourer 1100 ("Ace") almost 2 mths ago and she's just...bigger. So while she's more powerful and a little smoother, I enjoy jumpin' back on the smaller one more often than not! Plus, I can't even hear the bigger bike, with the quiet Hond stock pipes! My smaller bike came with mod/custom pipes, no baffles, I don't think. So it's not the typical two-into-one. Nice and growly, but not REAL LOUD.
