New Member Wakefield MA...2004 Honda Shadow Aero


My name is Mike from Wakefield Ma...just outside of Boston. I just bought my first bike a few weeks ago, a 2004 Honda Shadow Aero. I just got my liscense and I am absolutely in love with riding. I learned on my buddys Harley Sporster 1300cc, it was mean, loud and powerful.

Don't get me wrong I love my bike, but I feel like I'm already ready for something bigger. I'd just like to hear what some of you think, I was thinking of putting on some new pipes, Like V&H long shots, and maybe putting a hypercharger on it...mostly because it looks badass...I dont like the obscenely loud harley when ur at an outside restaurant and feel like ur going to have a heart attack..but the stock pipes are so quiet i feel like im on a vespa...suggestions for pipes? i want loud..but not LOUDD!!!

Other mods I was considering are raising the handle bars, or replacing them with mini apes or something...I feel like i look like a dork on my 6' 1" 200lbs, and forced to sit in an upright positition with handlebars resting on my thighs basically...some speakers on the handlebars...or adding crash bars with highway pegs and putting speaker on them..or is that too "old manish" 24 years old btw...

Or....should i just save my money...learn on this bike for a season or twoo...and buy that Harley i've wanted since i was 10 in a few years!

Welcome Mike.
I bought a new car in Wakefield at 888 Main Street last week.
Have fun with your new Shadow.
