I currently ride a Suzuki TU250 and there is something to the basic motorcycle thing with a flat, standard riding position and not too much power (and gas consumption). I've owned 750s and 1000s and more power does not = more fun. The Shadow RS is a just take a ride bike just as my TU250 is. Countless people stop to talk about it. I could not wait to get off my friend's crotch rockets (torture racks). I cruise on my TU and love the ride. Another friend's Harley was expensive ($20,000) and HEAVY. I never liked the Japanese feet forward cruisers. They are like candy Harleys. Sure the RS looks like a Sportster, but you get less weight and the nice overhead cam motor which is smoother than the Sportster. It's not trying to be something else. You could just call it, THE RIDE. I like it.
