If youŽre used to driving fast, Shadow will not do it for you.
YouŽll end up trying to ride that fast, and it will be less safe than riding the Ninja. Just my 2 cents.

I drive quick enough, but I would rather no tickets, so generally only like 5 or 10 over the limit, but I want something thats a bit of fun as well. ;]

take the MSF class, I would pick it up if your into sporty bikes. Its a upright riding, riding bike, has enough power to get you in trouble if your stupid, but most bikes do.

Real close. 93, the rear grab rail gives it away. It is going back under the knife soon.

It would be the first bike, but I have ridden dirt bikes and quads and really anything that goes offroad my whole life.
I know its a bike with a lot of power, but I wanted some decent thoughts.
As a bit of background, I am not silly or looking to impress anyone like many young people who go out and buy something without thinking. I know its dangerous.

Thoughts here?

EDIT

My other (safer...) method would be: There are some decent priced honda shadows around here.
The 650's are a lot better suited for a first bike than the 600's IMO. They are still fun bikes with a more user friendly powerband.

looking forward to getting my bike out this summer. Currently have a 92 Nighthawk 750. I want to get either a Yamaha warrior or 919 after college. Then down the road aways I wanna build a chopper with a CBr1000 motor in a chopped shadow frame.

What's the appeal of 'ape hangers'? They look like they'd be really awkward.

Here's a vid of the one somebody posted earlier:

Jeeze. There's a protip!

Take the MSF course... And just keep in mind what a rider's survival rate is above 85.

Keep safety in mind, and you'll be safe. No problem.
