I just bought my first shadow yesterday. I've had two Suzuki Katanas and a v45 Magna previously. This is by far the nicest motorcycle I've ever owned though.
The Shadow has just a shade over 25,000 miles, is a '99 750 ACE, and is very clean.
The good: The previous owner (wife of a coworker) had installed highway bars, leather saddlebags, a sissy bar, a luggage rack, and a Memphis Shades windscreen.
The bad: The right side cover had fallen off and laid on the exhaust melting a large spot in it before it was caught, and one of the mounting ears on the front fender is cracked and needs repaired before it falls off all together.
Between rides I have put her on a diet by removing most of the add-ons as they're just not my style. Though I definitely will be keeping them around for longer rides and camping trips. I also have a few ideas to make it my own.
Onto the pics:
One from the PO that shows what it looked like when I picked it up:
