  • Got my first motorcycle...

    Ya my friends will be pissed at me for not buying American... was really looking at the Victory, maybe a Harley... but I just liked this bike, figured for my first bike a 750 would be big enough, in 2 or 3 years I can sell/trade up to a big boy bike...

    2013 Honda Shadow Phantom 750cc

    was 8200, on sale for 6k, I talked my way down to 5k cash... (was actually impressed with my bargaining skills, rarely do that, not my thing. Walked out once, owner came out to me in the parking lot... got a free 5 year extended warranty... good for re-sale)...

            Seem to have a problem on starting out, 1 out of 5 times I stall it... either not enough gas or I take off like a rocket. (noob)

            Getting ready to take it out of my neighborhood onto the mean streets of Naples where old people between 60 to 90 still drive.... a lot. ;) I'm a little apprehensive, but I got my GoPro hooked up for the first ride... HOPE I can share it with you later, if I ain't dead. ;)

              Nice looking bike, congrats!

              When you start out, do you take a half-mitt of throttle and ease out the clutch? Motorcycle clutches are built to be ridden (within reason). The clutch is your friend in low-speed maneuvers, it's easier to get fine control than with your throttle. (presumably a bigger problem with a powerful 750 like yours)

              It works for me, anyway. I've only stalled twice in all the time I've had my bike. :P
