Garner, NC

Richard Strickland’s 1992 Honda Shadow VT1100 is all stock except for the Spitfire windshield. He bought it from the original owner with only 20,000 miles on the clock, and even though it’s almost 20 years old, Strickland says it still runs like new; routine maintenance is all that it’s needed. The Shadow came all chromed-out, and to this day, Strickland tells us all that brightwork still turns heads. He plans to make this one a long-term keeper as he thinks it’s one of the best bikes ever made.
