Thanx. I've checked the shadow forums. There's a lot on bobbers, but none where anyone seems to want to increase ground clearance. I am also putting a trailer hitch on mine, as the nearest halfway decent grocery store is 40 miles away. I know that I won't get the 45 m.p.g. that I am currently getting out of the shadow, but the 15 m.p.g. that I am getting out of the jeep is kinda killing me. I have looked and looked & have not seen a Vt1100 dual sport. Of course, there's good reason for that. But, its what I've got to work with.
