Gotta admit I actually laughed at this. And I don't believe I've ever laughed at anything on this site.

So for the first time ever on any site I am typing these three infamous letters...

LOL!

Sorry your sad with your purchase, I have an 09 shadow 750 spirit c2

I shift just fine, no need for a tach, I like the clean presentation on the bars. I also like my shaft drive very smooth.
Just got back from 1000 mile road trip, high elevations, mid 90s temp, long haul days, I've never had an overheat problem although. I wouldn't mind a temp gauge I don't personally think it's necessary and if it saved me a few $ on the sticker price fine

Ride safe and enjoy being on 2 wheels!

I've had an old school 81 Kawasaki since 2002 and ride the heck out of it almost everyday to work. Love it for what I use it for and have no complaints. I got a 96 Honda VT1100C in 2003 - I love this bike and have no complaints. I never plan on getting rid of it. And now I recently just bought an 03 Harley Heritage Classic. I guess when Ive had it longer I can tell you what I think of the mechanics....but for now, I love the way it looks and feels.


03 Harley Davidson Heritage Classic, 96-VT1100C and 81 Kawasaki KZ- I am not required to know everything....I am only required to understand what I know...

Hey...I remember you from way back. Don't recall seeing a post from you in ages. Good to see you're still around though.

When all think alike......no one thinks very much.

Likewise - remember you too! I'm always still around and I go through little spurts of posting stuff. But I still look in a lot - just don't say much. I guess I'm turning into one of the grey haired guys on the forum now! Still ride all the time - its a way of life for me.

It's not as pretty as yours I love those sweeping fenders and other design details that Honda made when they morphed from ACE to AERO. Very pretty bikes.

Thanks, the retro style appealed to me immediately. I know the Aero 750 is sort of the "Volkswagen" of Motorcycles, but it has enough going for it to appreciate and they are built to last relative to today's
products.

The Aces have appealed to me since the first time I saw one, especially the "Deluxe" versions that have all the "Whimsical" chrome accents, tank logo and the curved rear rails and front fender supports etc. Although they are Retro, to me the Aces have an almost Walt Disney, Mary Poppins era, Jules Verne created look to them. Cool Bikes. The Aero was my attempt at getting the closest thing to a new Ace.

Thats why i was hoping to see a full picture of your Bike, I see your
Avatar partial pic which looks good.

Thanks again
