Welcome from Atlantic Canada. I agree with what the others have said, and having an 1100 I can say they are indeed a nice bike. Other than the issues Les mentioned they're pretty much bulletproof and if you make sure the spline nut can't come loose and use the proper starting technique (no throttle) you'll get lots of life out of the starter clutch. I believe they corrected that issue around 04 with a more heavy duty setup - someone correct me if I'm wrong.
