Honda Shadow 750RS tricolor. I really dig this little bike.
Tune the FI, fit some better rear shocks and fork springs, and I got my new commuter.
The tricolor makes me happy.

It is retro and standard at the same time. Slightly longer rear shocks would probably help the handling, as would a slightly larger (18") rear wheel. But I like the standard style seat and the standard style looks of this bike a lot!

I want the Harley Switchback. But those wheels would have to be swapped out for something not so ugly.

Thanks! I just went onto eBay and found three, two of which had been "customized" (mutilated) sadly beyond recognition.
