Hello members, my name is Branden. New to the forum, new to bikes as well. I have only been riding 1.5 weeks. I just received my BRC 2 weeks ago, never ridden in my life. Scored my first bike a Honda Shadow VLX600 Deluxe Silver for 1650, 37,000 Miles and still in perfect condition. I removed the back seat; saddle bags; and sissy bars only cause I wear a back pack most of the time. Umm, as for myself, I am a father of 1.5 kids married and work as mesh network support here in Tampa, FL. Story of my life =)
Hello Brian, I'm a new member here also, been riding for several years, congrats on your purchase of a Shadow, i just bought my first Shadow a couple of months ago, put enough mules on it to realize I really like it As a beginnng rider there is something you must be told, might as well hear it from me, you must EXPECT the other people on the road (especially cage drivers) to do the most stupid thing they can - so when they do you are ready for it - if they don't, well that's good too!
Trust me, somewhere, sometime, they will - please be ready when they do.
HAPPY RIDING :d
