2003 Honda VT1100 Spirit

Hello folks, I've realized after riding the Suzuki since August I have a renewed appreciation for my Shadow. I've owned it since new and it has 42K miles and counting. It is so smooth and long legged on the highway.
There, I paid respect to my old friend. I intend to take the "brute" out for some San Diego canyon carving tomorrow.

Thanks Dude, this 1970 Honda CB350 also shares the garage with the other Honda and the Suzuki. I have owned it since 1976 when I was 16.

Thanks LEAVEITSTOCK,

Happy new year. I have enjoyed posts where you are involved. Enjoy frigid New England temps! I grew up in Jersey so I can relate a little.

Do you ride S2 ? One of my favorite roads in SC.
