Honda VT-1100 Spirit - 1997

owner's life: I am 54. I live in Arington Heights, Illinois and work in Niles, Illinois. bike info: I bought the bike just 6 months ago with 4,200 miles on it. I how have 7,600 miles on it, including a 1,000 mile Iron Butt certification ride. owner mods: Other than some chrome & sparkle, I added a Mustang seat and GenMar risers. costs: I average just over 45 mpg. I have almost -0- maintenance costs. personal info: I grew up in Texas and moved to Chicagoland just a year ago. I am the Chief Financial Officer for a manufacturing company here in the Chicago area. While I love my Honda Spirit, I do have my heart set (and a savings account to see that it happens!) on a 2003 H-D Dyna Wide Glide. I love riding. First and foremost it is great therapy and stress relief. It is also sensible transportation. Jon R. Hall

Iron Butt

I have a Honda Sabre with a Mustang seat and was considering an Iron Butt 1000 mile ride but wasn't sure the bike was up to it. Glad to see someone my age with a similar style bike made the ride. Not looking for a bike at the moment but I'm considering going the V-Strom route whenthe time is right. Good luck sellingthe Honda and purchasing the HD.

I have a Honda Shadow Aero and would like to put on the Mustang seat but was wondering where the foot pegs woulg go don't see where they could be attached.

Iron But

I have the same bike, Black 97 Shadow Spirit. I'm 55 and have rode on and off for many years from a 550 K Honda to a GS850. I've added several things to my bike but this winter plans are to move the rear turn signals and replace those tiny saddle bags.
I ride to work and have reduced the mileage on my car from 11,000 a year to just over 4!

Got to love it and I love the bike.

Your 1100 Shadow

Great bike. When it comes due for you to get your HD and say g'bye to the Shadow, I've been looking for one of these for a while. Give me a holler. I'd love to give her a fine home! I live in Elmhurst and work in Schaumburg.
