Honda Shadow VLX 600

My First Bike

Just found out today, there aren't many of these around. My friend at church wants to by one...mine! The dealer said people are keeping them because they are so easy to ride and get good MPG. I decided to get one, looked online and the first one i looked at was a Rebel and the VLX. They were less than 10 miles from me in a garage. I road the Rebel and noticed this black beauty next to it. Took it for a spin (with little riding experience) and it felt great. On the downside, I can do without the rattles and the expensive parts/service stuff. The gas cap lip and tank compete with the stock muffler to be heard. I need to get some good pipes but Honda wants BIG BUCKS. Tried to replace the spark plugs and can't find the tool to do it. Non fit. The tool kit was missing when I bought it. Haven't checked the price yet...afraid too. Saves gas but don't have a flat. Amazing what they get for tires...close to $190 for just the rear. I don't plan on selling it but wish there were some ways to save on expensive parts/service.

Thanks to Larry for submitting this personal review. Larry says, "VLX 600 Shadow 2003, my first bike. I bought it to ride to work after gas prices blew their top. I ride to church taking the back road around Lake
Lewisville. Love the gas mileage: about 60 mpg. I'm not a heavy guy, for sure. ."
