I live at 1 Frozen place in, Minnesota, United States
My real name is Mark. For many years now my wife has called me Mr. Motorcycle. When I started my Blog I was looking for a catchy blog name, so I went with it. I'm happily married and I'm also a father of 6 children. I have two human offspring, one dog, two cats and one custom Harley. I believe that makes 6 children. When I'm not doing my real full time job, or going for a ride, I like to do art, custom paint jobs, and of course BLOG. If you would like to contact me, my e-mail address is phonetically spelled for avoiding spammers. (I actually do use the number 1 in the beginning.) 1mrmotorcycleATgmailDOTcom

The photo above is my ride :
"Kenny" started life as a stock '97, 883 Sportster. It's been a work in progress since the day I bought it many years ago. Its mostly custom with a built, "slightly juiced up" 1200 motor.
The Metal Fabrication, bodywork and custom paint was done by me.

How the Hell did I come up with a name like Kenny for my bike you ask?...... Most people who name their rides, go with chick names. I of course had to be different. I think bikes look tough, cool and masculine; not feminine. Plus, my father "Ken" has helped make me who I am today. Therefore with a little twist on the name, my bike was named "Kenny".

2010 Honda Shadow....look a like wannabe of a Harley Davidson 883 Sportster XL Hugger?

You be the judge.

Hands down, no contest. I guess imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!

Ann said...

Ditto what Mrs RC said.
But I bet it don't sound like a Harley! :)

I try hard not to be a brand snob, because I've had brand snobbery flung at me (a Sportster owner) from metric owners... because I used to BE a metric owner... and because I really believe it doesn't matter what brand you ride as long as you ride safe. But those who resent the term "wannabe" should remember: there is a REASON all these metric cruisers look the way they look, and that reason is Harley Davidson. LOVE the Sportsters... Long live the peanut tank!

Could be twins. Regardless, both nice looking bikes.

IHG said...

Wow...they really look a lot alike. I went on the Honda website to see the price and they are actually about a grand more then an 883.

well, I always thought thats what a Shadow was aimed at anyhow...thus the name :)

I’ve got a baseball cap someone gave me about thirty years ago that says; “I Ride Harleys Blonds Brunettes & Redheads”. So if it meant not walking or taking the truck, I’d ride either one. Hell, I’ll ride anything that gets me there.

Ah! As long as you ride. As far as copy cat. Most American bikes have looked alike form the start. Just took them there Japs awhile to wake up.
