Which one

2007 Shadow 1100 sprit, 2000 miles, 2009 Shadow 750 sprit 3500 miles.

Both close on price.

What do you think?

The 2009 Shadow 750 is a nice bike but difficult to find parts for depending on what you are looking for. I love mine though.

07 Spirit 1100, good bike, especially if it is the silver one like mine. 750, good bike. Which one do you like? Solo or 2 up? On the road or mostly in traffic? Again, which one do you like and what are your plans for it? Good luck on your quest.

me personally i love the look of the 750's,but if i had to choose,id go with the 1100 because it is a bigger bike..which would be better for me. noone can tell you what bike to get,you are the one who's gonna be buyin/riding it..best to get the bike you want and feel the most comfortable on.

What do you think?
Which bike fit's you better/more comfortable? Personaly I would lean towards the 1100 not knowing anything else about you or the bikes in question.

1100 spirit vs 750 spirit. Both have same basic riding position and maners, weight difference is negligible. Might as well get the bigger one. In a cruiser bigger is always better anyway.
