New guy here, saying hello!
Name's Kenny. Here's my Shadow story:
Bought my 2015 Honda Shadow Phantom new (in '17) from a local dealer here in Temecula California. Taught myself the basics of riding around my work after hours before taking a basic riding course - and I was doing SO MANY things wrong.
Since then, I've:
-Amassed 11,000 miles.
-Fed the engine the dipstick.
-Bounced off a guard rail (OUCH).
-Replaced the headlight assembly.
-Juuuuuuust (yesterday) ordered bags for the bike.
I have an 8 year old daughter that I must convince her mother, my girlfriend and my mother that she'd be safe (guard rail story set me back to never) before I can take her around on it. I split time with her mother, so half the time the poor shadow is parked. I ride most any time I can. If my daughter is with her mother, you can bet your last dollar I'm on the bike.
I ride with an ever growing group of riding friends as well as my girlfriend (she rides - small bike, but rides).
I have numerous upgrades I want to do to it. Advice is always welcome!
My other hobbies:
-Charger Football - You can bet I will be near a TV or at a stadium for the fall/winter weekends.
-Craft beer - Love tasting, just got into brewing (terribly so far).
So, hello! Looking forward to talking with you people!
