A while back was not sure if I could ever ride a bike again. Was having terrible trouble with vertigo, balance, eyesight and a few other issues. I found out I had a mild stroke. I sold the Roadstar a few months ago as I just wasn't comfortable with the weight as I have gotten progressively weaker. I have been working with several Dr's neurologist, physical therapy etc. Got the go ahead to drive a month ago and I asked this past week what about riding and got the ok also but take it slow. I saw an old 1984 Honda Shadow VT700C and as I had one in high school thought it might be nice to own one again. Went to look at and ride and it was a strong runner with 15840 miles on the clock. A few cosmetic issues but not bad for a 40 year old bike. Talk about taking it easy I paid the man $1500 and then proceeded to ride it 120 miles home with a big grin on my face the whole way and it ran great!
