This is a nice bike for a first cruiser. Rides smooth on the highway, handles well on the twisties. This is the bike I used for the advanced rider course, and it sailed through.

This is a nice bike for a first cruiser. Rides smooth on the highway, handles well on the twisties. This is the bike I used for the advanced rider course, and it sailed through. It's quiet, so it won't piss off the neighbors when you warm it up (it's carbed.) It is reliable, no down time. Just hop on, push the starter button and go. Not a lot of gadgets to go wrong, but you do need to track mileage because their is no fuel gauge (there is a reserve tank with .7 gals to get you to the station.) No much more to say, it's just old school fun.

The 2015 Honda Shadow Aero is a testament to Honda’s commitment to crafting timeless and reliable motorcycles. This cruiser stands out with its classic retro styling, combining a low-slung saddle, ample chrome, and a teardrop fuel tank that harken back to the golden age of motorcycling. The 745cc V-twin engine offers smooth, responsive power that is perfect for both city commuting and longer highway rides. Riders will appreciate the Shadow Aero’s comfort, thanks to its well-padded seat and relaxed riding position. The bike’s low seat height (at just 25.9 inches) makes it accessible for riders of all sizes, ensuring confidence and control at all times. The shaft drive is another standout feature, providing a low-maintenance and reliable option compared to chain-driven alternatives. Handling is superb for a cruiser of this class, with the bike feeling stable and balanced at both low and high speeds. The suspension, featuring a 41mm front fork and dual shocks in the rear, absorbs road imperfections with ease, contributing to a smooth and comfortable ride. The braking system, with a front disc and rear drum brake, provides adequate stopping power and instills confidence in various riding conditions. One of the most impressive aspects of the 2015 Shadow Aero is its build quality. The fit and finish are excellent, with every detail meticulously crafted. This attention to detail, combined with Honda’s legendary reliability, ensures that the Shadow Aero is a bike that will serve its owner faithfully for many years. In terms of value, the 2015 Honda Shadow Aero is hard to beat. It offers a perfect blend of style, performance, and comfort at a very competitive price point. Whether you are a seasoned rider looking for a dependable cruiser or a newcomer seeking a user-friendly and stylish bike, the Honda Shadow Aero is an excellent choice that delivers on all fronts. Highly recommended.

I have been riding this motorcycle for several years on short and long road trips. The foot rest that was added to this bike makes it so comfortable on long rides along with the front shield for bug and debris protection. The bike is great for cruising on back roads. Also have two gas tanks and it's not so loud as other motorcycles out there.

Now that I am a little more mature, I wanted a more laid-back bike. This one fits the bill - not too heavy, reliable, good looking and not scary powerful. I have not done any modifications except for swapping the rear seat with a Hondaline rack. To change back takes about 20 minutes. I get good gas mileage and enjoy it a lot. The seat could be a little more comfortable. I just shift my position around a bit and it is tolerable. I plan to keep it for a while and put a lot of miles on it!

I haven't ridden a bike for several years, approximately 15. I purchased one from a friend and rode home 900 kms. in one day. I was amazed at how smooth it was and the power it had. On the highway my average speed was 115 kmh. but when I needed to pass it still had power. I ride with a group who all have larger bikes and find no problem keeping up with them. The bike is just the right size to be able to move when you have to. I'm 58-years-old and love it.

I bought mt VT750 in 2006. My wife and I hit the farm to market roads and hill country every chance we get. The Shadow has been the best bike I have ever owned. It cruises well with two riders and I average 51 mpg. Through the hot Texas summer, it has never missed a beat. It is very low maintenance. It's easy to handle even with two riders and loaded down for a weekend ride. I have thought about going to a VTX, but could not give this bike up.

Cons- 1. wire wheels suck they need tubes and are hard to clean 2. 3.7 gallon tank sucks for longer trips 3. Stock seat, double sucks-YOU MUST GET RID or modify it Well my complaining is over about the bike. If you can live with that, then you may have the perfect all around bike with some simple modifications. Pros 1. Awesome cool retro look 2. Smooth and agile around town and decent on the turnpike with one person aboard 3. Super mileage, I get 45-65 mpg 4. Good brakes 5. Reliable as hell I came to this bike because of the low seat height and it's so easy to push around. I had a Honda Pacific Coast and it was so top heavy that this bike feels like a toy. And a toy is fun. I don't go around all the time feeling unbalanced but the bike is a part of me and I can really enjoy it knowing I won't drop it.
