Default First Time Shadow Rider

Good Morning all,

Last night I rode my first Honda Shadow home. It's a 2002 VT1100 Sabre, grey with flame paint job. I got a great deal on it, the prior owner put tons of cash into customizing it. Top of the line mustang seat, custom pipes (cobra I think) with baffles removed, triple front lights, custom grips, custom pegs, and the list goes on.

The only downside is the prior owner was really into a certain look that I'll call 'goth' which isn't my thing, so I'll be replacing some items...but overall it was a great deal.


The paint job looks similar to this one, although this isn't my bike

I already have an '06 kawa zx10r in the garage which will keep the shadow company.

Anyway, I've been lurking here since I considered buying a shadow and this site seems like a great community. Glad to be a part of it now.

I'll post pics as soon as I can.

update:

Adding pic

On a side note I really got this bike for a steal. Every time I look at it I find something else that is custom. Just found out the exhaust is a Roadburner 2.5" Pro Street.
