Go with the 1100 Shadow - two pins per carb, versus one pin per carb on the 1300. The 1300 is heavier and slower than the 1100.

If your gonna get a VTX, you gotta go with the 1800.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

The VTX1800 is heavy and a bitch around town. The 1800 also has a sound that is a love it or hate it from what I read back when I was looking.

There is a website, but sorry I don't have the link.


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!
