I doubt I hit any of the noob threads, so I'll post here too, even though it's been a couple months. In March I bought a 1998 VT1100C3, with a little under 12,000 on the clock. In 6 months, I've pushed it above 18 grand. Labor Day weekend I will be performing the dreaded guide plug leak repair, the make my gear shift stop rattling fix and since I'm there, a Barnett clutch. I'd rather ride, but since I live in California, there will be plenty more opportunities.
So, what is the cut off date for old Shadows? I've had many motorcycles, but had never noticed a Shadow, until one day I was ride-less and there one sat....
