Yayaya. I notice it's mostly metrics on here. No biggie. We can't all afford Harleys,you know,always fixing em,needing to drag a trailer full of tools for the side of the road fixes.
I got thick skin. I own a construction company,22 men,5-6 crews. I can take it. And dish it.
Have we got any members with an 82-86 shadows. I don't know anything about this bike. It's funny. The tech in my 25 year old Honda is more advanced than my 5 year old Harley. It's amazing Harley stayed in business. It must be all the t-shirts they sell.
Now,I'm not beating up on Harley,I'm just kinda awestruck that with all of today's tech the best they could come up with is a twin cam pushrod motor. Overhead cams are the way to go. Less parts,more revs,more reliable. I just don't get it.
Now my Harley is a dream to ride. I'm no speedster. 100mph is more than fast enough for me. I am more if a cruiser. That Harley is the ultimate highway bike,for me anyway,but that 750 is just a blast to ride. It corners and leans fantastic,looks pretty good,handles around and thru traffic just awesome.
I bought my old lady an 83 450 nighthawk last year. I was going to just hand her down my 06 1100 v-star but it was just too much bike for her. She handles the nighthawk really well,so when I came across this shadow I thought it would be a perfect highway bike for her. Now I don't want to give it up. Liquid cooled is a must for slow city traffic. More than once I have has to shut down the Harley for heat.
But now I gotta find her a highway bike. I was thinking a Vulcan dresser or something.
Anyways. Glad to meet yas
