Honda Shadow Spirit, 750, 2009

I just traded my Honda 250 Rebel for a 750 Shadow. This is my second season riding. I am in love with the new bike so much. I think the Rebel was good to learn on, but I feel more confident as a rider on the 750, even though I have only had her for two weeks (and am still learning). I am 5'9" and average/slightly more curvy in build. I just feel like I am in better control of the bigger bike. I felt scrunched up on the Rebel. Don't get me wrong, the 250 is a great bike, but the 750 is more comfortable for me. I'm still getting used to the increase in power, but I love it! I don't fill maxed out going 50 mph like I did before. I am still learning and sometimes struggling to make better slow speed turns, but my ability to do so has increased greatly with this new bike. Go figure!

I just bought an '09 Shadow 750 vtl - after 20 years of being off the road - I am happy to say I am back on, now that my kids are grown....my husband wants to go get his license now!
I ride, "Bad Nana" to work every day it's not raining - need to leave Lake George area and move south so I can ride year round--- good luck, and safe riding my shadow sista!

750 Honda Shadows are such reliable & nice running bikes. I found the rake in the forks made it a bit more difficult to make tight U-turns, but I still loved the bike. I rode one an entire summer back in 2009.

Have lots of fun this summer!

I too moved up from a Honda Rebel to a Suzuki C50, I am also a new rider. I could not believe how much better and secure I felt on the bigger bike, My turns are slower but with practice it gets better. I am working on making tighter circles with my bike, which has boosted my confidence. I am by no means a speed demon and I sometimes feel like I wait at a stop sign for every car around me to go by.Good Luck and Congrats on the new bike,

Great bike. I have an 1100 Shadow, just love it. My husband got me a Rebel years ago, I only rode it once and then refused, did not like it at all. I've had my Shadow 2 yrs and wouldn't trade for anything. Enjoy your new ride.
