Really loved the Shadow 1100 I picked up 3 years ago. It got me back into the game. After 10K miles in 3 years (Year 2 was low miles as a liver transplant slowed me down for a month) It was time for something more comfortable for 2 up. Found an 08 Nomad 1600 with 6K miles. Nice step up. Wife loves the extra room. wasted no time in installing Phat II risers. Made huge difference. Thanks for posting about them.
