I thought I already posted this but it's not showing up. Just bought my first bike, a Honda Shadow VLX 600CD and I love it! Don't really know how to ride, haven't been over 45 MPH, but I got my permit and going to take the Motorcyle Safety Course. Been a passenger with my dad and others for years, just decided it was time to make my own way--really just got tired of having to ask someone else to take me for a ride!!
