Welcome to the Shadow Shack!

I'll start with a brief introduction. My name is Richard, but most folks simply call me...Richard. As you can tell from the pics here, I have a passion for motorcycles (particularly the Honda VT-600 Shadow, but I've also become rather fond of the venerable Rebels too).

I'm also a member of the Christian Motorcyclists Association, and when I'm not out riding or working on my bikes I might be found reading comic books, target shooting, or watching one of the Star Wars flicks for the "Xth" time. I also host the VLX Riders Forum at Delphi, check the links section to see this community.

"These are my motorcycles, there are many others like them and unlike them but these are mine. My motorcycles are my best friends. They are my life. I must master them as I must master my life. Without me, my motorcycles are useless. Without my motorcycles I am useless. I must ride my motorcycles true. I must ride better than the cagers, who are trying to kill me. I must outride them before they crush me. I will. Before God I swear this creed: my motorcycles and myself are defenders of the open road, we are the masters of our highways and byways, we are the saviors of life. So be it, until there are no cagers, but peace. Amen."
