SE Mountain riders

Greetings, twisty fans and fanatics.

Put me in the latter category. The mountain roads in western NC, eastern TN, and northern GA are where I have the most fun. But I'm not on a Shadow, until I get this '83 VT500 back on the road. I have to give it a try in the twisties to compare to my Magna. It doesn't have the acceleration, but in the tight twisties it is all about handling and cornering clearance. This VT500 should play very nicely with the narrow width and lighter weight.

So, who else out there can relate?

I agree, I live in west GA and often ride in north GA. I've got a 84 vt700 and it does great in the corners and takes the hills well in lower gears. I have yet to ride the dragons tail though, sounds like a good summer trip...
