\Well as most of you know I sold my 08 Wing and bought an 09 Concours 1400. Loved it but recently since the wife and I started RVing, we bought a new Jayco Trailer, 29 Ft with 2 slides. So I thought my riding days were over. So I sold my Concours 2 months ago. WELL, I couldn't stand not having a bike in the garage so I started looking again. I found a 2002 Shadow Sabre 1100 with only 6600 miles on it, The price was so low I thought it was wrong. I called him and I went 210 miles to get it. Brought it home Monday, had new tires put on it Friday since it still had the OEM 10 year old tire on it, good tread but 10 years old. So another new learning experience now on this Shadow. The only BAD thing is the loud pipes. The seller said he has the stock pipes at his parents house in Wisconsin and he will have them sent me the pipes. We will see how that works out



Oh yea, I still have some orange clothes from when I had my orange 02 Gold Wing


here is my new trailer

Never owned an 1100 but a buddy let me test his while he tested my 750 ACE. I loved it, I still have the 750 and still ride it from time to time. Always did love the ACE model but I love my 1500 too! Here is my shadow, you can see I really wanted a Wing! Hahaha.

Hello joe. After I heard you sold your Connie I was was afraid you were going to end up being just another legend around here. Not yet .

Thanks for the kind words, Yea, it's not a Gold Wing but for the little amount of riding I do now it fits my style (EXCEPT FOR THOSE LOUD PIPES!!) :mad:

Hey Joe, welcome back to the 2 wheel world. Glad you found such a great looking bike. Can't wait to see what you do to this one. Knowing you it will probably be the nicest and cleanest Shadow in Calf. Ride safe my friend...

Glad to see you back in the saddle Joe. Is there room in the p/u for the Shadow when the trailer is hooked up?
