My name is Bryan, and I'm from the central coast of California. Just recently finished the MSF course and got my M1 license. Been researching what I should get for my first bike, and through that research and talking with other bikers, decided on a Shadow. Preferred the styling of the Aero, so narrowed down the searching to that model. Waited until someone posted something on craigslist that I liked and ended up getting a red/cream 2008 (picture attached). Hope to learn a lot here.
