The Vincent Black Shadow: Tuning For Speed, Part 1, In The April Issue

Featured In the April 2020 issue of Roadracing World:

     “I suffered through a childhood deprived of motorsports. This hardship was offset, to some degree, with unfettered access to groaning shelves of books. At the impressionable age of 12, I came across ‘Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas’ by the late, great, Hunter S. Thompson. Consuming this tome was a highly educational experience which indelibly marked my psyche in at least three ways:

A. The adoption of Gonzo Journalism as my personal writing style.

B. That declaring “On the advice of counsel…” magically invokes indemnity for any activity.

C. The mystique of the Vincent Black Shadow …”

—The Vincent Black Shadow, Tuning For Speed, Part 1, by Sam Q. Fleming

All these years later, the Black Shadow remains a touchstone in performance motorcycling history. So much so that when Army of Darkness cornerstone Sam Fleming got a chance to buy one, he did. His lust for the machine, and the reality of living with the beast, are detailed in the latest issue of Roadracing World!
