I went from a Yamaha Sport Tourer to my 2006 Honda Shadow. It is an overall great bike.
I did an immediately change from the stock grips to ISO grips. There is not much vibration from the bike but the ISO grips did improve the ride.
I also got rid of the buck horn handlebars and installed drag bars. This for me also improved the ride.
I always rode a Sports Tourer and could not figure out why my shadow did not truly feel comfortable to me. I finally realized it was my sitting position.
This is what prompted me to go with the drag handlebars. I am glad I did. The quality of riding my Shadow has improved tremendously.
Upgrades/Accessories: Windshield, floorboards, highway pegs, drag handlebar, trunk, trimmed tank and fenders in chrome.
