    So i finaly took the course and got my license this weekend. Now i have been shopping around for a bike. I am 5'8" and 140 pounds. I seen these 2 Honda Shadows and like them alot. I have never riddin a bike before this weekend also.

    If anyone could give me some info/feedback on these bikes i would appreciate it.

    The only "bad" thing i read online about them is that they are 4SPDS. Is this really all that problemsome?

    Ahh thats music to my ears. I really like the price and looks of this bike and the only "bad" (notice i put it in quotations) thing i heard was that it was a 4spd.

    The only problem I see is since bikes are designed to be upshifted without a clutch, it may be very jerky since it's a widely geared tranny.
