So I might be getting my first bike soon!!!! My buddy's dad has a 98 Shadow VLX and "decked it out." Evidently it has low miles and runs awesome. Never been laid down or anything like that. A year ago he was asking 3k for it, but I think I can get it for under $2500. Is that a good price? Is that a decent bike to start on and keep for a few years? Also, in Georgia, is there a riding school that is suggest over the rest and what do I look for in a school?
