Greetings fellow forum members, Shadow Shack here from the year round riding area of Lost Wages Nevada, where it pretty much always shines and rarely rains.

I found this board while googling info for another board and liked what I saw so I came back and registered. I currently have four Shadows and three Rebels in the garage. Some stock, some chopped, some bobbed --- well scratch the bobbed part, I departed with that one recently...but the point is I'm into modifying them. And by modifying I mean far more than the modern CraigsList/Facebook practice of using a sawzall & basic dismantling skills of using a wrench to loosen fasteners and calling the result "custom".

Hoping to have a good time yucking it up here.

Welcome from Daytona Beach.

He never said he has coins, Soupy. You only need to be rich if you're paying someone ELSE to customize your bike.

Thanks for the welcome all.

Yep, I've graduated up to making half of what I used to in this new and improved economy.

Yeah I already got hit by the no-link until X posts message but pics will come when I can. And I completely understand the reason for it...mods and administrators, do yourselves a favor: no matter how much people gripe about it, never change over to CAPTCHA. You will live to regret it if you do. ;)

Membership started to fall off a bit after they dropped the "Ride Metric" focus. Then they seemed to have a lot of server issues which turned more people away. It just slowly died after that, and I think now its more like a blog for the magazine.

I just joined this site a little while ago. Nice to find a broad MC forum that isn't brand/model specific or focused on only one style of riding.
