One does not have to be a motorcycle engineer to figure out that the 1999 VT1100T Shadow ACE Tourer is the touring-equipped version of the base liter-class Honda Shadow Aero.

Indeed, the ACE Tourer brings a lot of comfort-focused upgrades, such as the large windscreen, cavernous sidecases, more real estate for the pillion and cast aluminium 11-spoke rims.

And because it's a tourer, the bike also comes with a large fuel tank allowing you to ride more between stops at the gas stations. Because that's what motorcycles are about.
