I also ride an 1100 Shadow. I am inching my way closer to switching to a 2008 or newer AN400. My question is do you think this is enough power? Basically I'd like something lighter, that is more commuter friendly and has ABS. Motorcycle shop sales people tell me that coming off of the 1100 I'll be disappointed and point me to larger motorcycles. Are they correct? I see you have both but I'm in a one motorcycle family ) Please advise,
1) Most of my ~5k miles per year is commuting or running errands.
2) My commute involves Interstate with a posted 65 mph, I often hit 80 but if I stayed in the right lane 70 would work.
3) Annually I do a couple of one day, 2 up pleasure rides that are ~ 200 miles, with some interstate @ 70 mph.
I spotted you on this thread.
