Just purchased my first Honda on Saturday. Got a great deal on a pristine VLX600CD Shadow and so far I love the way it rides. After riding a 2005 Sportster for 5 years I am loving Honda so far.
Since I purchased the Honda from a private owner rather than a dealer I want to make sure everything is good with it myself and the first thing I need to learn is how the water cooling system works and is checked out. I will get that info, I am sure, after they approve this post!
In any case, I think I am going to be happy riding a Shadow! I can see upgrading to the 1300 in a couple of years
