Hello from the Western Slope

Wanted to drop a note and introduce myself.
I just today purchased a 1993 Shadow VT1100. It was slightly disassembled by the PO and then he lost interest so I'm putting it back together. Checked out okay as far as I can tell. It seems to be fairly solid and has a whopping 38k on the odometer. But from what I understand these bikes run up to 100k and for $300 I'm not to worried. It left some room for repairs that Im not willing to do. It has new tires and the seat is perfect. The tank needs repainted from being tossed around and some other small things.
I've been riding off and on for about 40 years but this in my first Honda. I rebuilt a Yamaha XS 1100 a few years ago and sold it after putting some fun miles on it.
I'm looking forward to learning from you folks and hopefully I can add some things from time to time.
Cheers.
