These are companies that offer tours by motorcycle in very memorable
areas of the world. You could eigther bring your own bike and take part
in the activities, or they help you hire bikes for the trip (the more popular
option, as you get to try different bikes)...

(Moved from the SHADOW NEWS PAGE)
Those fortunate/unfortunate to have read my "Biking History" page (see my Home Page) will have read a plea for a MOTORCYCLE CRUISER MAGAZINE for us: easy riding, long and winding road using, heavy custom bike fans... Well, its finally here! A magazine just for us... I read about it in a bike magazine, and managed to copy this phone number off the advert... so if you are interested call: 201-451-9420 ... maybe you can tell them where you saw the number too, so they may look favourably upon our little shrine to the Shadow...
According to the cover in the ad I saw, it features the Shadow, Valkyrie
and lots of other cruisers. What more could you want? At last (I hope) an
unbiased mag for all cruiser bikers...
Follow Ups: I've just got their first two issues although the cover says $3.95 they charged me a staggering $24... $12 each. *sigh* but it was worth it... I'm very happy with them, and am reading them little by little to make them last longer... They are only released as a trial to see if they will sell. Here are their details:
Motorcycle Cruiser, 6420 Wilshire Bldv., 5 th Floor, Los Angeles, CA 90048-5515, USA
Phone: 213-782-2230 - Fax: 213-782-2372 - eMail 70611.172@CompuServe.com

Shadow VT750C for sale: US model from 1987 and has about 21.000 miles
on the counter, dark red with highway steps, a removable windshield, BIG
saddlebags, a removable luggage rack, updated sissy-bar and a tool roll.
For Belgian buyers : the bike has passed the technical inspection and has
obtained a "GVA" document. I'd like to get 140.000 BF for it.
I'm only selling the bike because I bought the VT1100 and my girlfriend already has a XV750. Otherwise I would have grown old with it or given it to her.

I am currently trying to bring back to life a 1985 Honda Shadow 500cc
I am looking to buy a used one. It doesn't have to be running. I mainly
need the frame as the one on mine is bent out of shape in the area
were the swing arm meets the frame. If you could direct me to one or know
of one please let me know... Its a Honda Shadow which was in a crash and
I am looking for one to buy, to take two and make one. If you could help
me I would appreciate it "preferable in the Maimi area" please
