Yes, but the Shadow does have very classic lines. It's an excellent bike.
I'm currently riding a CB250. This is it pictured below in my front yard. I have a windshield on it now, engine bars, and also ride with a tank bag. I'll be getting a rear rack for it in a couple of days. I am what's called a "re-entry" rider. I picked the CB250 because it is closer to the rides I remember from the 60's when I first got into bikes. The CB250 of course has the smaller displacement engine, air-cooled, carburetor, cable choke. I will probably step up to something like a V-Strom 650 in another year or two, but only after I get a dirt bike like a Yamaha XT225. I am also interested in getting a 60's Triumph Bonneville, but only as a show/hobby bike.
Glad to see other riders here.
