    Highest Rated Consumer Review by the Community

  • Look no Further!

    Apr 1, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Beautiful, reliable, gets a lot of attention, a joy to ride.
    Cons: None.

    Summary: Everywhere I go people stare. On street corners, at stop lights, and in parking lots people go out of their way to say "nice bike!". I keep thinking I'll get used to it, but it still feels great. A Mercedes or BMW pulls up beside me at a stop light. The ... read more

  • Fantastic Motorcycle

    Mar 28, 2008 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Best value for the motorcycle dollar spent
    Cons: ONE. Honda quit building these in 2007. Get one quick

    Summary: This will be my last bike. I see no reason to "upgrade". This has to be one of the best designed and most comfortable bikes I have ever ridden or owned. For those who remember changing/adjusting points, oiling chains, replacing plugs every 3k miles-you ... read more

  • 2003 Spirit Still Casts Impressive Shadows

    Dec 6, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The styling is timeless and the reliability is unequaled.
    Cons: A bit under powered, but not unbearable and what's with no Tach.

    Summary: Being a long time rider and a big bike lover, I found myself in a quandary when I decided to retire my 78 Goldwing 1000 a few months back. I followed the advice of the great American Philosopher Yogi Berra and "Took It" when I came to that proverbial ... read more

  • Best Bike for the Money

    Dec 14, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: reliable, decent power, comfortable seat, very affordable, great gas mileage
    Cons: gear ratio in first and second is too low. Fuel injection would be nice.

    Summary: Like many people I started riding again after many years of idleness. I searched for months and months for the bike I wanted. My 97 Shadow 1100 turned out to be perfect. For my size and riding needs it is just the right bike. I now have ridden it for ... read more

  • 2001 Spirit - A great cruiser

    Nov 8, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Price, reliability, economy of ownership, smooth motor and standard passenger backrest and saddlebag guards.
    Cons: Windshield required for higher speeds. Forgotten model by accessory makers.

    Summary: This bike is so wonderful and goes unappreciated by the biker community that I have really learned to love it. I am a 44 year old male, 5-10 and 200 lbs. I put that in because it lets you compare yourself to me for my ergonomic and styling comments. I ... read more

  • Wonderful Hot Rod Chopper Esque bike.

    Jul 29, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Beautiful lines, nice engine, good handling, good get up and go
    Cons: 2nd gear is a little too high, 1st is a little too low.

    Summary: Reliability: I have had no problems to speak of from this bike. It does seem to like the coolant and oil but other than that the bike runs fine. Comfort: I have ridden this bike over 6000 miles in half a year. Do you think I would do that if it was ... read more

    Feb 3, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Comfortable seat, handle bars, riding position. Great handling, relaxing ride.
    Cons: None.

    Summary: Like many of you probably have, I spent a long time trying to decide exactly which brand/model bike is right for me. I am a fairly new rider. I took the MSF course about four months ago (Sep 03), and bought my first bike, a 1990 Yamaha XT350. I've ... read more

  • Honda Shadow VT1100

    Apr 2, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Low center of gravity for great handling, low seat height good for women riders
    Cons: Head gasket leak at 12,000 miles

    Summary: My first bike was a 600 Shadow VLX that was way to small for my 5'8" height, 165# frame. I moved up to the 1100 six mos. later. I bought with 4,500 miles on it and have since put on 10K in 18 mos. The longest I've gone is 1000 miles in 3 days up the ... read more

    Pros: Beautiful, comfortable, low maintenance, affordable
    Cons: Low top speed, limited range

  • The Best Metric Cruiser Over 1000cc

    May 11, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Very strong and agile. Sleek looking especially in all black.
    Cons: 2001 model has chrome ensignia on tank - prefer 2000 paint/decal scheme

    Summary: Over 15 years of perfecting this bike - and it started out as a quality machine in the 1980's. Nearly unheard of acceleration - will compete with any other cruiser bike on the market with the exception of only the new Honda 1800 V-Twin cruiser. Price, ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Awesome handling
    Cons: none

    Summary: I bought this bike after shopping around for quite sometime. I decided on the Spirit mainly because of the great reputation of the powerplant. It is the absolute finest motorcycle I have ever owned. I just turned 40,000 miles on this bike and aside from ... read more

  • Honda Hasn't Messed with Success

    Dec 26, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Honda's made the same bike for 16 years - there must be a reason for it.
    Cons: Acceleration dies after 85 MPH

    Summary: Honda introduced the VT1100C (the original 1100 Shadow, now known as the the Shadow Spirit) in the mid-80's, shortly after Harley-Davidson introduced its Evo twin engine. The engine, with three valves per cylinder, overhead camshafts, and two spark ... read more

    Pros: comfort for a large person, styling, handling, power, Honda over-engineering
    Cons: placement of rear turn signals, high pipes, disappointing engine/pipe sound

    Summary: After re-entering the motorcycle rider family after a 30 year absence, I started with a small bike (Yamaha Virago 535) and took the MSR course. After four months, I was ready for a bigger bike. I went to our local dealer who had all the metric cruisers ... read more

    Summary: I bought this bike in February, 2000, and I love it. This is the first bike I bought for myself, the others have mainly been for my husband. But this is my bike, all mine!! Even though I am a lady biker, this 1100cc is not too big for me to ... read more

    Dec 22, 1999 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: great reliability, style, and looks
    Cons: subdued sound

    Summary: I bought the 1997 Honda Spirit for the clean good looks and the quality reviews in bike magazines. Having owned six Honda motorcycles, fool-proof engineering and reliability was guaranteed, and this bike has the dual-pin crank that gives smoother ... read more

    Summary: I am a serious rider, currently I have ridden 21,000 miles in just over 2 years. I was looking to move up to my second bike. I wanted a good reliable cruiser, and it had to be a V-Twin. The dealer showed me the various models, but the ... read more
