    Hey yall, I do 75% of my riding on Texan highways, around 75mph. I've got the VT1100 Spirit. This bike, not having a sixth gear, really protests going those speeds.

    Wanted to start a thread for this model. Interested in hearing from other owners, and learning more about its history, it’s quirks, and it’s technical resources. Didn’t see a thread come up for this here. (I know this has a business logo, but it’s the nicest photo I’ve seen anywhere of this...
