My son has decided he has to have a Shadow, preferably an 1100. I am looking for info about what he should look for or think about as he shops for a used bike.

I am curious about suspension as my boy is 6'-3 and 280. I want to make sure the stock suspension will work for him.

Any real difference between the 750 and the 1100 in terms of a new rider experience? Obviously there will be a power and weight difference but will he miss it?

Thanks for any comments.

He definitley would fit better on a 1100 over the 750. He may need forward controls. Stock suspension should be just fine, most are adjustable anyway. You need to buy a bike that has not sat for a long time without being ran. This is something that can be overcome, but it is not a real simple task.
Good luck!
