Hallo, I'm Chris, I'm 18 and entering college at University of Maryland College Park in less than a week.

I've been riding a few months on an '86 Shadow 500 that currently isn't working (I've searched these forums for help and have found a lot of things to try, but nothing's worked so far) As soon as my account is fully activated I'm going to post a detailed write-up in Technical Discussions.

I'm an Annapolis native myself, though a former girlfriend lived in Montgomery County so I'm familiar with the area.

I posted a picture in another thread, though it's from before I bought the bike and it looks a bit different now (temporarily removed windshield, ditched the handlebar tassels, etc)

I'm 15 minutes from Annapolis. Hit me up if you're looking for someone to ride with.

Got it running! It was a corroded electrical connection (to ground) that was solved by cleaning it up with sandpaper and greasing it. I am extraordinarily happy.
