    Well, last weekend I sold my 2006 VT750DC Honda Shadow Spirit (got an offer I couldn't refuse) and picked up a 2010 VT750RS Honda Shadow Roadster ... kinda had my heart set on the Phantom variant, but have always loved the lines of the RS too ... and I got a deal I couldn't pass up!

    In my opinion, the RS is the best of those 750 shadows that Honda did. It doesn't have quite as excessively low a seat height and feet-forward position. nice upright normal fit standard motorcycle

    Looks like a cool bike. I like the fact that it doesn't have forward controls. Enjoy!

    Will do ... as soon as I get 'er ... she's currently residing at a Honda dealership in a town 125 mi. away from where I live ... weather's lookin' too cold and/or crappy for foreseeable future to bus n' ride, so am trying to track down a shipper for reasonable cost ... hoping to actually have the Bike within the next week or so ... will post a few pics then!

    The RS has loads of ground clearence . Be careful if / when you put a bike jack underneath the engine ,the coolant pump hangs dow a fraction and you do not want to make that a contact point.....for obvious reasons .Haven't had any issues with mine , it's a Shadow engine so I do not expect to have any :D. Have fun .
