Hey, all.
My name is Josh. I just scooped up a 2000 VT1100 a week or so ago and I am absolutely loving it so far. I've always ridden sport bikes and still frequently go to the track. Last year I was hit from behind on the highway in Brooklyn and it put a damper on my desire to buy another street bike until just recently. I got the VT1100 and this is my first (ever) on a cruiser-style motorcycle. It felt super strange at first but I'm already starting to warm up to it. I came here because I know the communities are awesome sources of information and interaction. I can't wait to learn some stuff from you all and just really get to enjoy the ride. Thanks

Welcome to the forum. My biggest issue coming from other bikes to a cruiser was the weird wind turbulence. I do have a windshield though. If you ever get a windshield of any kind you will want to check out the forum for lots of tips. Tips to divert the crazy head shaking turbulence.

welcome to the dark side, lol, where on the Island? I live in Colorado but I'm from Mastic Beach
I'm in Hempstead right now. I've been over to Mastic recently. I was looking for property over there a few months ago and then decided to drop that idea.

Josh - A belated welcome to the forum from Arizona 🌵
So what does your back look like after riding rear-fenderless for 20-30 miles on the LIE? ;)

All kidding aside, she looks great!
Keep the shiny side up and enjoy your Shadow - Kevin
