    Hi, Im interested in buying a Honda Bros 400. This is quite a rare bike over here, so parts availability for it are somewhat scarce where I live.

    Hey there fellow riders, I currently am having a problem with a fuse that keeps blowing out. First off the fuse "usually" blows out when I use the turn signal and hit the foot brake at the same time but as far as I've noticed not when I use them separately and sometimes not, I can't say for...

    I am purchasing a Honda Shadow 750 that the previous owner has removed the baffles from the exhaust to make a louder bike. He is giving them to me with the sale and I want to put them back in the mufflers, which seem to be an easy enough task. My Question: When I reinstall the baffles, will...

    I'm looking at a '95 Honda Shadow VLX 600 as my first bike. It has 17,000 on it but I've heard that Hondas can get up to around 100,000 so I'm not too worried. Will it be good to learn on and possibly do a half-country tour on, even though it's a 4-speed? I plan on learning maintenance and cycle...

    1998 Honda VT750 Sometimes when I turn the key and push the starter switch, it buzzes and the lights shut off. Turn the key off and on, and the lights don't turn on. I'd loosen the screws on the battery and tighten them up again, and then the lights come on and can start the engine. While...

I'm looking for something newer that's at least an 1100cc and under $5,000 that's nice enough to keep around awhile. I love the look of a Honda Shadow and I hear that they're really dependable, but...
