I also had a Honda Magna. It was very fast, handled great and definitely not boring. It also broke down a lot and cost me very much in labor and parts. Worst Honda I ever had and I had several.
Now, back to the Shadow's: very reliable, did everything right and BORING. At the time I didn't think they were boring, then I got a Sportster. Now when I look back at them, I think they were boring.

That's about the most comfortable rig I have ever seen.

Makes me think of pillows and clouds 'n' sh*t like that-there
