COMMENTS INVITED ABOUT PROSPECTIVE NEW BIKE

Submitted by bikechickadee on Sat, 13/08/2011 - 2:21pm

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.
