Honda Shadow 750cc Cruiser

The Honda Shadow 750cc cruiser is indeed a beauty with gorgeous pipes and shinny chromes. The bike is based on Honda's venerable liquid-cooled 52-degree V-twin engine. It has an impressive torque in the lower rpm ranges. The engine sports twin-plug, three-valve cylinder heads, with two intakes. At calm speeds along the greens, the bike was easy and noisily picking up speed. Fantastic however, the pillion seat is just miniature. For a long distance, it is sure going to hurt your rear.

The well kept and nicely spruced up Honda shadow cruiser got Kevin and I meet up at the Karirana estates one Sunday afternoon for a shoot. The idea was bring out the chrome on the bike against the back ground of the coffee plantations and the blue sky. The clear road and winding turns brought out some great images ideas as well
