A little over a week ago I had a honda shadow
(1st bike) and was very happy until I laid it down. I had a choice to fix or ins. aduster would total it. Fast forward to 4 days ago... I was buying a 2007 900 with 1700 miles and in excellent condition. I did my homework before buying and considered that it would be a step up from the 750.
I often visited the Honda website so decided to come here. At first I was a little concerned. However, I have found everyone very nice and helpful. I have gained some important information on my new bike and very impressed with this site. Thanks to all who have responded to my threads and posts.
Next! I took 1/2 day off. I changed oil today and cleaned the bike. Temp was 81 perfect skies and my 2 hour ride to nowhere was heaven.
This bike is not perfect. However....
Shifts better, stock seat is more comfortable than last bike, lots more power, no shaft drive jerking, a little more height so no foot peg draging on sharp turns, has a fuel gauge, pipes debaffled by po so now I am heard and seen, and 5.3 gallon tank is a welcome upgrade from a 3.7 gallon.
This is a nice looking bike. I do miss the blue but black is very cool. Gonna take some getting use to but I expect to spend many hours hitting the back roads to nowhere and enjoying life.
