Welcome from eastern Canada. I have an 1100 and it's a great all around bike. Dependable and easy to handle in traffic with enough power to cruise at highway speeds. Like les said, post a pic when you can.

These are the only two pics i have now. It's parked in my neighbour's driveway in the one. The other is a screen shot from a video my son took.

My current bike is an 82 KZ750 with mini apehangers and cherry bomb mufflers.
Old UJMs are all I've ever had.

That's my neighbor. I tell him his Harley isn't a real one because it doesn't leak oil.

when you change your oil
you know where to dump it

I heard about a guy back in the '60s
his neighbor bought a new VW beetle, and was so happy it was getting 22mpg
this is when cars got about 6 to 8 mpg

every week he bragged, its starting to break in now, Im getting 24mpg

then 27mpg...

after a month of this he had enough.
every night he snuck over with a gas can
and put gas in his neighbors bug.

"its better than I ever thought possible! I got 35mpg this week

then 48

then 72mpg

when his neighbor told him "I must have some kind of prototype - Im getting 99 mpg!!!"

Then he fixed the guy good.... He stopped putting free gas in his car

two weeks later the guy comes over - can you drop me off at the VW dealer? I think I blew the engine in my car... I was getting 99mpg, and now Im only getting 24.

Sure Bob! I will be happy to follow you to the dealer and give you a ride home!

If you really do have some special prototype engine in your car, I "hope" they dont swap it out on you...
