My new to me '01 spirit 1100. Story and first look.
I posted last week about the spirit 1100 I had lined up. It's now bathed, licensed and sitting in the garage. I found the bike on KSL.com, a local news channel website, that has an awesome classified section for Salt Lake and surrounding areas. I was browsing the motorcycles, when it popped up. I looked at the add then went to bed. I pulled it up again, the next day and it looked like such a good deal, I couldn't pass it up. So, I texted the guy, and to my surprise I was the first one. The bike was in St. George, Ut, 300mi from Salt Lake. Additionally, the owner was not available till Monday the following week. I managed to get off work at 1pm on Monday and was on the road by 2pm. After fast food and some pee breaks I made it to St. George at 6:30, inspected and test rode the bike, and loaded it up on the trailer. I did't haggle with the $1500 asking price. The drive back went pretty quick and I was backing in my driveway, at midnight. I've ridden it about 65 miles now.
Here are a few pics I took before washing. And....I have photos of the complete lack of maintenance this bike has had. Oh Boy! That will be in the next post, along with a list of all the known problems I'll have to address.
