This post is about a motorcycle.

More specifically, this post is about the 2006 Honda Shadow Spirit (VT1100C):

look at this pretty blue bike

As you can see, this is a very attractive machine. It’s great look and feel, a powerful 1099cc engine, and man, look at that blue. I’ve had many friends that have had Shadows in the past, and it seems that they’re very well made bikes.

So, of course you can understand why it is that I just bought one of these bad boys.

See, look! Here’s ME on MY Honda Shadow Spirit (VT1100C), the Anti-Bike Mark II:

Man, that guy and his bike are HOT!!

Many thanks go out to Angela, who took me to the dealership this morning to pick it up. Due to RA Training today, I wasn’t able to get much riding in. I did go for a little cruise around the area, and there also was the ride back to campus from the dealership. Angela and I also headed out to grab dinner, but just as we were finishing eating, it started to rain so we headed back to the garage. Right after we got indoors, it started pouring out.

As for the handling…. man, this thing feels nice. It’s just nice and smooth and my biggest worry before I got it, the weight of the thing (556 lbs, vs the 375 or so of the Anti-Bike Mark I), is a total non-issue. The riding position feels perfect and all of the controls are in easy reach. It has a lot of power, but is also very happy going about at reasonable speeds.

Anyway, I’m sure you’ll be hearing more about this here. I can pretty much guarantee it. For now, though, the take away message is this: Look at how fucking cool my new bike is.

    […] Since I moved to my new apartment back in late May. Since that time, I rode my bike a total of three times, for about 45 miles. Yes, from June until now, just 45 miles. With about four months of prime riding weather in there. My disinclination to ride was not helped by my acquisition of my other two-wheeled friend in August. […]
