My 750 Honda Shadow Aero

My 750 Honda Shadow Aero

I started riding in April, 2009, when I was 51 years old. I was a passenger behind my husband, and wanted to know how to ride. We had an accident in 2008, which landed me in the hospital over night. Thank goodness for my helmet! I still wanted to ride, so I bought my 750 Shadow in April, 2009. I took our local ABATE class and love riding. I slide into a guardrail on a steep curve in southern Indiana, and the only thing I kept thinking about was my beautiful bike. I rode 70 miles home on my crashed bike, with no rear brake, no windshield and a really messed up 3 month old bike. I cleaned myself with a first-aid kit I carry while my husband made my bike ride-able. I didn't really want to ride home, but I got on, and did it, bleeding from road-rash on my elbow and knee. My beautiful Shadow was repaired and I've been riding with my husband and my best friend who also purchased a Shadow Aero. My shadow has snake-skin flames, Vance & Hines pipes, a bunch of chrome, and I am still adding accessories to make my ride even more special. At 52, and two accidents, I still get on, and love it!!!

Keep getting up
by: Blue Demon

Good for you to get back on your bike after an accident. I just received my M status on my license and so far my longest ride has been to Michigan City from South Chicago. I have riden downtown Chicago a couple of times and Lake Shore Drive. I love riding but seem to get a little scared when it comes to the deep turns off the ramp. You are an inspiration for me to keep trying and don't give up! I own a 750 Honda Shadow Aero 2002.

Glad you got back on the bike....The ABATE programs are wonderful. And our Shadows are good bikes. WHOW stands for "Women Her OWN Wheels." Enjoy life to the fullest.
