Just stopping in to say hey

Hey all names shawn and i am from souteast pa. I dont got a shadow yet but i wanted to get one soon. I do have a 85 honda magna v30 with the v4 engine in it. I was thinking of getting a vlx because of it size ( i am 5,1 and 170 lbs) and maybe tricking it out. Bobbing it out and so forth. my only concern is it might be too weak. I dont really want somthing that is weaker then my magna.

welcome. well the vlx are definitely weaker than magnas. but they are still great bikes and perfect for some one of your stature... plus they are easily made into great lookin' bobs.

I started out with nothin'... and i still got most of it left.
