2007 Honda Shadow Spirit VT1100C Review: First bike in 30 years!

Motorcycle: 
Year: 
2007
Color: 
Silver
Review Summary: 

Great bike for getting back into the sport after being out for a long time. Reliable, with a very simple maintenance schedule. Easy to handle, both in town, and on the highway. Excellent fuel economy (50-55 MPG). My only complaint was that the stock seat was too stiff. Replaced it with a Mustang Regal and it's now a much more comfortable ride. Overall this has been an excellent machine. Could use A more aggressive exhaust system, though.

Best Features: 
Reliability, appearance. Great bike for a single rider. Easy to handle and maneuver.
Improvements: 
Stock seat is stiff as a board, and it is a little top heavy when riding with a passenger (if you and your passenger are full-grown adults)
