After many more months than I had anticipated, I finally got a chance to run back to Oklahoma (from Atlanta) to pick up the 2 bikes I purchased last summer! I brought back the '05 Rebel for my wife (I gave her a photo of it for her birthday in November!), and the '04 Shadow Aero750 as my "project bike" that I am earger to work on to use as a commuter. Some previous owner completetly jacked up the electric/wiring system trying to add too many LEDs, extra running lights, etc. without knowing what they were doing. The battery is literally melted into the battery box. More details to come.
Not the best pic, but left-to-right are the Rebel, the Shadow, and my VTX. Together at last.
