Just had to take a 40 mile round trip jaunt - of course I don't care that it's only 46 degrees outside and dark at 6PM...I took the Shadow. I love to ride! But it began as soon as I made the turn out of the neighborhood.... I started wondering how it would feel mounted on that VTX 1300R sitting there in nice warm Texas...waiting for me. The whole ride I was thinking, this is just one more mile closer.
