Cool! I haven't been up that way yet on the bike but hope to get a little further from home next summer. Talking about doing a road trip up to Thunder Bay area with my dad (he rides a V-Star 1100).

I'm out in Ottawa. Let me know if you head out this way. Up to this point, I've never met or rode with anyone on the forum. A few times a year, I'll ride the 511 up to Calabogie or take some of side twisty roads down to Westport. Depending on who I'm riding with, it can be either a somewhat leisurely pace, or, quite spirited.

Nice! Sweet bike! What highway bars do you have? And how do you find them comfort wise? I'm 6'1 and would like to be able to kind of stretch my legs out a little more. My dads 1100 V-Star has them and its great... my knees are still bent but its pretty comfy. I'm just wondering if that is doable on a 750 Shadow or not.

We should get together. I ride with a few guys, we often hit Westport area, nice twisted up there.

Thanks!
I'm not sure, they were on the bike when I bought it. I like the Hwy pegs when out in the open roads, stretches the legs out and changes the seating position. I'm 5'10" and find that's enough. If you don't have Hwy/crash bars, you may want to look into forward controls. I don't think you can do them with the bars.

Merry Christmas fellas.
