SFBay rider just picked up used '17 500. Fantastic bike so far, but I did lose a side cover before I found the fix...

1st bike: 1999 Honda Shadow 750 ACE (RIP 2001 thanks to a red light runner.)
2nd bike: 2003 Honda Shadow 750 Spirit (75k miles! Tear down in progress for storage/rebuild.)

Holy crap I'm on my 3rd bike.

Yeah they are great bikes. Will get mine running again with some minor performance and appearance mods some day... Much better for long distance than the 500 imo.

Welcome!

I'm on my second bike. First was Suzuki 650 LS40.
I rode an S40 for several years, but they are a bit maintenance intensive compared to a Honda. I always liked big singles starting with my Gold Stars and Matchless G50, but progress does happen.

Suzuki Savage 650 was my first bike.
honestly if Suzuki would just updated the S40 to fuel injection I probably would've gone with one of those instead of the rebels
i actually looked at that bike first, and i saw it was still carbeurated and i thought - seriously?! so then i moved on.
