You have a funny way of expressing that. Only a troll comes into a site, posts how much he hates what the site is built to discuss, then leaves.

If you've been riding as long as you say, then you should be able to adjust your own chain about 30+ years ago, I learned that at age 15. Obviously you don't learn quite as well as you want to think.

True.. We have had a few anti Honda-in-General trolls make their way briefly onto the board, But usually those posters are a little more blunt about their message.

I think (personally), that it's okay to point out some of the things we wish were better about our bikes. We took the time to buy them, to own them, so I think we have that right.. They're not perfect in all ways after all.. If they were.. There would only be one bike.. The Shadow, and there would be no market for the rest of them.. So, and broadly speaking... To gripe occasionally, isn't necessarily a show of outright disrespect..

We want improvements, we post suggestions in the suggestion box after-all..

For example.. I wanted a 1200 Aero with about 95 horses and 65-70 ft-lbs of torque.. Did I get one? No.. I did not

But.. Still want one tho'!! ...and the minute Mr. Honda reads my post and makes me one.. I'll buy one..

****Sigh.... We can only hope that Mr. Honda is reading these posts..

Just in case..

Trueの場合、 ..我々は、いくつかの抗ホンダ・イン・一般トロルがボードに簡単に自分の道を作ることがあったが、通常こ れらのポスターはもう少し鈍い彼らのメッセージとしています。

私はそれが私たちが、これらは私たちのバイクについて優れていた希望のものをいくつか指摘しても大丈夫だと 、 (個人的に)と思います。彼らがいた場合..しかありません..シャドウ1自転車こと、およびだろう..私 たちは、それらを所有するために、それらを購入するために時間がかかったので、私たちは..彼らはすべての 後にすべての方法で完全な権利じゃないことがあると思いますそこ..それらの残りの部分のための市場になる ことはありませだから、と広く...時折不満には、必ずしも完全な無礼のショーではありません でしょう..

私たちは後に、すべての提案ボックスに提案を投稿し、改善をしたいです..

たとえば、 ..私は約95頭の馬とトルクの65〜70フィートポンド私は1つを取得しました.. 1200エアロを望んでいましたか?いいえ..私はしませんでした

しかし..まだ「 1カントーをしたいです! ...と本田さんは、私の記事を読み、私の1になります分..私は1つを買いますよ..

****ため息....我々は唯一の本田さんは、これらの記事を読んでいることを期待することができます. .

Family, Friends, Love and Life..
Take Care and Ride Safe,
Mark..

I don't know what that say's but while we're making wish lists from Honda I'd love a VLX with a 1300CC motor 6speed trans and belt drive. Now that in my opinion would be cool. Thank you Mr. Honda

i didn't know the VLX was a "Shadow" or that it was a 4 speed, assumed it was a 5 speed. thanks for the info.

I thought Ringo had a 2007 Shadow, one of the 4, RS,Phantom,Spirit,Aero. Wrong again.... but do you think i'll keep my mouth shut, hell no....

Yeah, if you're going to wish, wish BIG...

i'll admit i was a little uncomfortable with the opening line in this thread mainly because i know that many of the threads here on HSN
come-up on a Google Search on the first page and in the "google summary contents" of whats inside the google links.

iow, there is, for example, a very good likelihood that when someone "Googles" "why buy a Honda Shadow" they will see "Why I hate my new Honda Shadow" on the first page of the Search in the proceeding months after the thread posted.

it's just "bad press" for the brand i happen to own... loyalty kind of stuff..

I find HSN posts come-up on the first page VERY often when one searches "Honda Shadow XXX" (where XXX is the issue with Bike) on Google.

Hey Ringo, that's a nice color on that bike. They really are nice looking machines.

Yes, Ringo you have the very finest in Bike Colors, and that isn't even just my opinion, it's documented fact I mean it's a fact i wrote that in my owners manual... j/k

Red is indeed an excellent color for a Motorcycle.
