I just got the title for my 2001 Spirit 1100 after making the last payment. I ride year round and the bike always starts runs great and handles well in my daily 27 mile daily commute on 64 around Norfolk, VA. After a Suzuli and 6 Yamahas this is my first Honda. The bike is deceivingly big but I like it that way. After four years and 24000 miles we are good friends. This 1100 is a wonderful piece of riding machinery and it looks good too. Off the interstates this is an excellent area to ride and see things. I can tell it is getting warmer because I am just starting to see the Harleys come out of winter hiding. I am new to this area but hope to scope out some riding groups to either go down the coast or up into the mountains this summer. Ride safe.
