I had a buddy who had a '96 ACE 1100. He kept tryin' to get me to buy a bike.
In '05 when gas here was over 4 bucks a gallon I bought my 1st legal bike, an '05 Aero 750.
I was hooked.
(I'd ridden op's bikes in my younger days, no license, no sense either.)

I had a new 98 Shadow Aero 1100. Sure do miss that. Good looking and comfy.

Yeah, I had a blast on that little 750, just couldn't keep up with "The Boys" on the highway.
Yeah, that's the downside. They are great bikes and go forever, but are shy on the power end of things.

I too enjoyed my '97 Shadow 1100 Spirit, but found besides under-powered, or needing a 6th gear, it had a high center of gravity. I'm 5'10 and couldn't flat-foot. Difficult to throw a leg over too.

I rode my buddy's ACE once.
We swapped about halfway to our destination.
A high center of gravity, sitting on the bike.

He loved the X, sitting in it instead of on it.

Yeah, that was the great thing about the X. 1800 or 1300. I really liked that bike.

With my 6" Rivco risers and Ultimate Lowboy, I really feel I'm sitting 'in' the bike now, not on it.
