hi all,

I'm considering a bike upgrade in the coming twelve months. I currently ride a 750cc Honda shadow (it is the C2 model shadow the rarer style which has a (21" front wheel not 17" like most shadows which are C4models with smaller front wheel longer guards )

I'm considering the VTX1300 cc which is basically the next Honda cruiser up from the shadow.

Naturally I know it will have a much longer wheelbase but more powerful engine.

Resurrection of a 10 Year Old Ride

Submitted by skutr on Fri, 08/07/2011 - 1:34pm


January 2011, I purchased a 2001 Yamaha Majesty scooter to use as a city commuter and runabout.  In its earlier life it has seen 10 years of service as a utility vehicle within the grounds of the Fawkner Crematorium and as such had never been road registered – and as you can see from my comments below – I suspect it had NEVER been serviced in its life!

The 14th Melbourne Branch Autumn Ice Run May 2011


A fortnight before the scheduled start the top of the Victorian Alps were covered in snow, it was freezing and it was too dangerous to attempt the planned route.   I was having anxiety attacks about what to do after booking accommodation for almost 30 people.   I need not have worried as Mother Nature smiled on us again and we had a very mild week before setting off from Dandenong early on Saturday, 21 May in very mild and dry conditions.

well I can't believe it I managed to survive my first ice run intact. Thanks so much JC for organizing it and Holly for guiding me down the mountain top on Saturday.

Unfortunately my luggage was a casualty as some of you may know, I guess the koalas near Bruthen are wearing my nice pink PJ's!!

Having not been MC touring before I didn't realize just how much your gear really needs to be strapped on to be safe.

very sorry to hear about Carlos coming off I hope you are on the mend and didn't get too damaged, pity about your bike.
