2000 Honda Shadow Sabre VT1100C2 Review: Great ride

Motorcycle: 
Year:

Color: 
Blue
Review Summary: 

I have owned 2 1100 Spirits previously and had the opportunity to buy the Sabre. Jumped at the chance. Love this V twin, twin plug engine. Easy maintenance and cheap to run to boot. Manouverable town bike that's capable of eating the miles two up or towing a trailer on the open road. Need to be mindfull of the large gap in the gear ratios when down shifting from second to first but you soon get used to that.

Best Features: 
Light weight. Manouverable. Relatively maintenace free. Good torque.
Improvements: 
I like the bike as it is as far as performance and comfort but there's always something you can improve. Looks, bling etc
Compares to:
