I've been riding for 25+ years, and primarily ride sport/sport touring bikes (my current ride is a '96 Kawasaki GPZ 1100). I really joined this forum because my wife rides an '84 Shadow/VT 500, and I rely on rider forums for information and details. It's fallen to me to do all the maintenance on this bike, and to add some accessories. It's this last part that has me coming here, since we've picked up several items from eBay; but some of them came without mounting instructions, and I'll be asking for help.

My wife loves her Shadow, even though it seems a little small for her (she's 5' 11"). Great engine, handles really well for an older bike. I love to jump on it and flog it now and then. Fun bike! Just hit 19,000 miles. Last year we had to do a major overhaul: carbs rebuilt, top end of the motor rebuilt (honed the cylinders and replaced the rings, too), rebuilt the forks. It's a keeper!
