The "horse thief" (A.K.A. power robbing shaft drive) doesn't help matters with the 750 either. Two right angle connections makes for an inefficient power transfer, and then there's the additional weight. Prior generation 750 Shadows with their dual carbs and chain drives simply suck the headlights out of their current shaft driven counterparts.
"Ride Safe, Chop Safer"
Motorcycles are not unsafe. However; they are extremely unforgiving of inattention, incompetence, ignorance, and stupidity.
