'99 Shadow Spirit VT1100c

Pastor Mike Shelton thinks his cruiser, a Honda Shadow Spirit, is the perfect ride for a preacher. The Spirit is his daily ride—which includes an 84-mile one-way commute to church each week. The Memphis Slims windshield increases comfort for the long trip; other upgrades include a Cobra exhaust, Progressive Suspension, a Saddleman seat and saddlebags. Mid-Cal Motorcycle’s guru, Mark Doherty, mapped and tuned the Shadow to perfection. The tank was updated with striping from Twisted Chrome, and the fenders got accents too. The Shadow is a head-turner wherever she goes, says Pastor Mike—he always gets compliments.
