Hi fellow bike enthusiasts! I recently bought a 2005 1100 classic and I really love it!! This is my first road bike,, well other than one many years ago that I ended up trading after just a few months for another ATV. I’ve been riding off road since I was pretty young, and I spent about 20 years racing quads. So I am definitely still learning the ropes when it comes to road bikes. I have to say though, I am surprised at how nimble and easy to ride it is for a fairly large bike. I’ve been poking around the forum for the last month or so and I thought it was time I join and introduce myself. It seems like a pretty friendly place to chat about our rides and learn a lot about them. Im happy to see the feedback suggests these are pretty reliable machines. Mine has 15000 miles and was definitely pretty well cared for. Someone before me wanted a very clean look, and stripped off anything that resembled an ID tag or that said Yamaha. I kinda thought the original decals looked pretty cool, but I like the clean look too. I don’t think I’ll be going through the effort to locate and replace them. I’m not trying to make it look like something else, I think we all know what I’m talking about lol. Well this is already getting kind of long, so that’s it for now. I’m looking forward to learning more about my bike and I’m glad I found a community to do just that. Here’s a couple pics!
