Default New guy from NC

Well, I'm a fairly new Shadow owner I guess. I've had it since June, so a litte over three months I guess. A month or so before I got it I was pretty sure I would be taking a break from motorcycles for 20 years or so since my wife was about to give birth to our first and I couldn't justify spending any money to fix my beat up old 1975 Honda CB750 I'd been riding. Well it just so happened that I got a jo and I needed a bike for "work", and I needed one quick. What I wanted was something cheap, reliable, and fun. I wound up with a 2002 Shadow Spirit 750. Since then I've put several thousand miles on it, and I'm consistently impressed. Anyway, I live in Winston-Salem NC and my name is David. Bonjour.

PS-this is my second time registering for this forum, the first time I got "banned forever" because I was a spammer. I hadn't even made a single post!

Welcome aboard. It would appear that the first account was banned as it had all the ear marks of a spammer, advertising a web site in the home page line, account name the same or similar as the email address, etc. etc. all are common tactics of the spammer/spambot. It would appear that you are up and running as of now.
