looking for first motorcycle that ill be keeping for many many years and kilometres. under 5k(canadian). 

 

is a Honda 750 shadow ideal?

Just asking for opinions and thoughts. 

A Honda Shadow will be nearly bombproof, they're pretty much the quintessential Japanese cruiser. Though I will say, carburetors need a little more attention for the winter storage I imagine you'll be doing in Canada. Just don't store the bike for months at a time with a full float bowl unless you've put some Sta-Bil or other fuel stabilizer in your last tank before you put it away for the season. Fuel-injected engines are a bit less susceptible to this, but it can still cause injector clogging.

 

I really don't know the market up there, but Honda and Yamaha cruisers are good bets, Older Yamaha cruisers might go by V-Star up there like they were here for a while. I started on a small-displacement Yamaha cruiser, I'm on a modern Honda 500cc naked bike now, it's been excellent. I commute on it year-round.

Dude get what you want because there is a chance that someone will take you out or you take yourself out. Also when things get harry remember wide open throttle, it will get you through it or end the suspense. 

Forgive me El Guapo. I know that I, Jefe, do not have your superior intellect and education...
