Matching Motorcycles For Sale:
I have the �06 Shadow Spirit 1100. I bought it brand new. I decided to go with Honda because of there reputation for reliability and quality. I am glad I made this choice; I feel the quality and toughness when I ride this bike. I have owned at leased 10 other big street bikes of all different brands, and I�ve never felt a bike as solid and reliable as this one. This bike is practically maintenance free. Just add gas and go. Oh, maybe an oil change every once in a while LOL! That�s about it. The only thing I would change is additional pegs for a more caf� style body positioning like the Magna for the rider. I feel like it�s a bit of a strain to keep my back straight. And handlebars that are not so wide, it�s a bit uncomfortable after a long ride, and tighter to squeeze in between cars. I am convinced that Honda is by far building the most reliable and toughest cruisers on the planet for a great price! I am averaging 45 mpg and I can get an average of 140 miles out of a tank full of gas and an additional 30 from the reserve tank. Everywhere I go I get compliments and thumbs up. I would recommend this bike to anyone that wants to have a bike that will run for a long, long time and be maintenance free.
