Well, I don't see an introductory thread so I guess this will have to do. I ride a customized by me 1999 Honda Shadow A.C.E. and ride all the time if possible. Crossed the country from S.Florida to N.California and back in 10 days with some stories to relate in another thread. Looking forward to contributing whatever I can.

My bike has two distinct personalities depending on the ride and weather. I'll check for a pic thread and post more there.

Thanks for the welcomes. Just found the site, I'll search a little bit and see what I can find before being stupid, then I'll do a whole lot of it later.

Holy crap, you went cross country on that bike? No front fender, shocks replaced with steel rods, drag bars. Not to mention no windscreen or luggage.

Wow.

I don't have a back seat, and where would you put the windshield anyways?
