She took the MSF course and did very well. They used a Kawasaki 250 for the class. I got her a Shadow Spirit. Tends for the front end to sorta 'fall' if turned past about 15* either direction. Falls over to the stops. I rode the bike quite a bit. Not really a problem but it's clear they put a bit more trail in and it's something she's just gonna have to get used to. Have any of you guys experienced this with similar bikes? (07 Shadow Spirit 750)

It's really not a tech question, that and you also posted nearly an identical thread in the general discussion, sorta a forum no no here. No worries, but please cut us a little slack about doing so again. Oh, it is sorta the nature of the beast, need to practice practice practice. It's the rake which I believe is around 32.7 degrees. I think my vlx's rake is like 37*. It just takes getting used too. Parking lot practice will help a lot. I do a lot of figure 8's,,feathering the clutch.

I'm going to close this thread, but here's the link to the op's thread in the general discussion. http://www.hondashadow.net/forum/53-general-bike-discussion/370569-shadow-question.html


thanks for your support (line stolen from the old cranberry commercial)
