Nice to meet y'all! Quick question, so I'm about to buy gas for the first time. I have a 2018 Honda Shadow Phantom... I don't have ethanol free gas here in my town. Do I go with a low/mid/ or high grade fuel??!! This is my first time ever having to fill up anything besides a car. Sorry if this is a noob question!! But thanks for any and all help!

Welcome to the forum.

You should have an owners manual that tells what it drinks.

It looks better this way. If you have a tall picture leave it that way stored on your computer, and when you post it, the computer will straighten it. We hope.

Hey thanks, Swifty! I'll have to unscrew the seat to get to the compartment that holds the manual. As for the photo, I didn't realize that was how it posted! I use the app Tapatalk.. so I guess it's something I'll have to mess with.

Thanks, vabrokenarrow! Took off my seat today to see if there was a storage compartment under it (my dealership said there was supposed to be an owners manual).... But no luck. Am I missing something, guys/gals??

Some bikes have a side cover compartment. Tools and manual maybe?
