Hello All

Hey Everyone!

I'm jumping on this forum because I'm picking up my new bike tomorrow, a 2007 Honda Shadow Spirit 750 and I'm quite excited. I've perused the forum a little and am excited to get involved.

This is my first real motorcycle but I've ridden a scooter for a little over a year. I'll be using this as my main form of transportation for a good while, looking forward to some cold weather riding (sarcasm).

Any tips you guys have for a new motorcyclist would be much appreciated!

Get you some good gear. Jacket , gloves, pants, and a good helmet. Not just for warmth but for road rash protection. Like they say, dress for the slide, not the ride. Be safe, keep your eyes and mind on the road at all times. Of course being on a scooter, I'm sure you already know how invisible you are. People just don't see you. Make your self seen. Reflective or high vis gear helps a lot.
Good luck and welcome to the Forum!
