I was downloading the vt1100 c manual and got a virus.
I assume that you are referring to files that I have uploaded from this post:

http://www.hondashadow.net/forum/53-general-discussion/98837-honda-service-manual-spirit-tourer-1100-aero-750-pdf.html

If so:

There is NO virus in that manual download; I know because I am the person that uploaded it and only I have access to the location of the file storage. The file is in Adobe PDF format. The Spirit/Tourer manual has been downloaded almost 400 times already, and you are the first person to claim a virus. The Aero 750 manual has 250 downloads and again, no viruses reported. To double-check, I downloaded all three files again this morning, and NO VIRUSES.

If you are using Avast or McAfee, you may be getting a false virus reading.

I also downloaded the Aero 1100 manual that CJ7 provided and again, there are NO VIRUSES in that download either.

Perhaps you need to update your AV software.

I wonder if his overzealous virus scanner picked up some of the text formatting or something and decided it was a macro, and therefore a virus.

I've had that happen with .DOC files before, but never a PDF.
