I feel off balance on my 2006 Honda Shadow Aero VT750C
(NE Washington State)
I love my deep red ride. I'm 5'4" and like that the seat is low, riding position comfortable, enough power for me, but after riding it for 7 years, I have to admit I don't always feel completely balanced on it, especially on turns, especially those slow turns. Initially, I thought it was the placement of the handlebars, keeping my arms stretched out beyond what I was used to. I've replaced handlebars, finally using a Yamaha model which helped, but I still don't feel good balance and control when not driving straight down the road. A visit to the dealer didn't turn up anything unusual with the bike.
I started on an '83 Honda Shadow 500 and didn't have this problem. I only find glowing reports on these Shadow Aero bikes and since I seem to be the only person I know that experiences this sensation on one, I'm thinking it's me and considering giving up riding for safety's sake. Has anyone else experienced this control issue on a 750 Honda Shadow Aero, or any other bike for that matter, and if so, were you able to get it resolved?
