Getting the wife involved is always a good thing for me. I was looking for an 1100 shadow and ended up with a 1800VTX which i had for 10 years. Sold it and ended up down sizing to my 1100 classic.

I looked at the 1300VTX but wanted fuel injection, and it was a wee more top heavy to me.

I was looking at the 1300 vtx also but i ended with the 1800 because of injection, dual front disc and the one thing i liked the most is the rear/front integrated brakes. With me the 105 hp was wasted i am a cruiser not a speeder.

I thought about an 1100 until I read an article on changing the oil, and, I think, the open hole on the gear drive at the back wheel that has to be kept packed with grease or it tends to rust. This is in 2010 and the issues may have been corrected(?).
