Sugar Bear agrees with you guys, I flat out love my 1100 Silverado, good lookin (IMO) strong and just one hellva lot of fun. I feel sure you will get off on how good a bike Yamaha is. DonDar, I know what you mean, when I bought my 1100, I couldn't give up my 750 Virago that I bought new back in 82, still ride her a lot, and she is still hangin tough 28 years later, a testament for the tough motors and bikes Yamaha puts out. Have fun with it and ride safe.
Ride Safe, Live Long
