I love the 1100's, my first was an 81, I got it 6 years ago. I now have a 1500 and have had it 1 1/2 years.
It's not what you buy, it's what you build.

My first wing is a naked 83. I've had it four years now, and know that there's nothing out there to replace it with. If this one shouild die for some reason, I'll have to scour the earth to replace it. It does everything i ask of it with no complaints. It's heavy enough to feel planted on the highway, yet still quite nimble and light around town, even in Boston traffic. and still lighter than a Harley. Besides, where you gonna find a 28 year old Harley in original condition that just needs basic service to make it run and keep running like new for a reasonable price?
