Remember 9/11



Modifications to my

2000 Honda Shadow Spirit 


2006 Kawasaki Nomad



2000 Honda Shadow Spirit 1100

After 5-1/2 years and 57,000 trouble free miles, I finally traded the Spirit for a 2006 Vulcan Nomad

I found I was doing a lot of long-distance touring and the Nomad is more suited for this.

However, I would buy another Spirit in a heart beat because it was such a reliable bike.
