Thats right. Unless you have a jack and knew how to repair or change the inner tube, a tow service to the bike shop is inevitable.

 

Happened to me once while I was in Penang. :sweat:

You will have to change the rims to do that. This topic have been discussed before. :smile:

Any more shadow riders out there? come on people come share some views or just simply talk some rubbish........:cheeky:

Hi bro, glad you got your shadow. I rode a FQ number Shadow for 2 years, for almost every days. And had never got engine problem, its a very liable and nice honda engine.

 

Only incident that my clutch wire was cut-off on during my ride and another one when my battery was died.

 

Do consider the look of your Shadow when choosing your side-bag. If I were you I wont install top-box. ...Just my personal preference for its look.

 

Good luck for your accessories hunting. :smile:

:cheeky: I am wondering, the bike is so heavy.

Any lady riders riding Shadow? Or is it a man's bike?

:confused:

There was this thread from 2 years ago.

 

Gal on Shadow thread

 

For someone here, if she passes her Class 2 in 3 weeks time, she'll ride a Shadow 750.

 

So it's not necessary a male's bike. As I mentioned on our last chat, it's a matter of technique. Pure brawn is not needed. Just follow my way of handling those big cruisers. You'll really don't need muscles to move it.

Zero, y not consider E360 or E41 as yr sideboxes?

I'll b using wingrack + V46 + my current 2 bombs(E41s :sweat: ) on my dad's(Im overtakin it) Steed.

Bigger compartment than E21, neway, u dun hav to worry abt yr width handling oso as yrs shld b wide handle bar rite? :? :p

 

Cos E33 is on monolock, though better lock system, but not veri recommended as sidebox.

For pics, checkout @ our PK thread regarding sideboxes. :smile:
