Information: This is my 4th Shadow. My Previous Shadow was an 1100 ACE looked beautiful and sounded identical to a harley with jardine pipes but without my fear of break down. The Problem with the ACE for me, was the recliner seating. Feet out in front is unnerving to me. This Generation One Shadow, has the pegs more underneath me. I read the Generation Ones had way more horse power then the generation 2 and subsequent 1100 Shadows. The more I ride this old bike , the more I appreciate it. At this writing, I have put on about 1200 miles.
