I have been browsing this site, reading, and learning. This site and the information was one of the reasons I went with the Shadow.

I got a 2002 Honda Shadow 750 Spirit. It is my first bike in 11 years and I am excited to get back into it. NOT a big fan of the pins striping but it is a great bike.

thanks guys.

The striping may grow on me. It is very well done and it would be a shame to cover it up or remove it, but not really feeling the yellow right now anyways. I do like that it stands out and isn't like any of the other bikes around me. It will stay as is until winter and then I can make a non-hasty decision.

The last owner did most of the mods I would want to have done to it, so i am up there. It came with a memphis windshield and nice leather hard bags.

Great bike to get back into riding and my first cruiser. Going to take a safety course to knock the webs off.

my brother has almost the same vtx1300, but without the batwing. Amazing look with the bw. i may have to talk him into it. it really changes the entire look and beefs up an already beefy bike.

thanks for the good words everyone. It is a great bike and though I still may change some colors later, it is definetly not a deal breaker for the ride. I like the overall look and stance of the bike great re-introduction into riding.

thanks for the compliment bud. yeah... i really like the batwing. the best thing about it is i can take it on and off in seconds with the quick detach mounts for a completely different look. i like it though.

nice scoot welcome
I love those phantoms. They are just perfect. Love all the brushed and satin silver finishes. I went into the Honda Powersports to look at a new helmet and jacket and finally saw one. It was next to the honda fury that was satin white and all blacked out (sweet as well). The forks and engine appointments on the phantom really set it aside from the rest.

I think it would look awesome with some blacked out pipes or black wrapped pipes for your bobber look
