hey guys, i just purchased my first bike. an 85 shadow 500. we all know traffic is crazy down here can you guys give me some advice before i take this bike on the road? i am very scared of the people who drive in s.fl
I second the MSF if you haven't done so already, there are also a few books and some good websites for traffic safety. I'll try to get a list together later and post.
What part of Florida are you from?
i am located in homestead, about 5 minutes from the keys. lol im pretty south. i do have access to a large parking lot (empty 90%) of the year. i dont think i will be riding on the road at least until the summer to get in some decent experience. thanks for the msf course.
is it required to have a motorcycle license? does this exist or is my regular license enough?>
I felt just like you the first few times. I stayed on the sidestreets and practiced in church parking lots. Eventually your confidence builds. I also recommend the MSF course and Motorman Paladino's CD.
yes sir i have posted there, seems like i have to line the tank which i tried to do with kreem but it didnt come out to good. so i decided to remove the lining but it flash rusted on me. i actually would like to know if these tanks have an original coat inside?
