Welcome from down south (i don't get to say that often) Wisconsin. There are a lot of nice helpful people here. I have an 01 1100 classic my self. I have had a lot of bikes over the years and am extremely fond of the classic. For a first bike you did very well. Stop by often.

Welcome from the Maritimes. I had a 2000 1100 and it was an excellent return-to-biking ride. I've moved on to a different bike but I still come here every day just to shoot the sh!t with these wingnuts. It's a great place to learn all about your new to you ride.

Wisconsin is actually north of some Canadian areas. It looks like you're about as far north as I am and parts of Ontario and Nova Scotia are are actually south of you. Not by much though.
