1100's are better.....I owned a 750 and upgraded
They are all good, if I was doing long distance riding, yea, but for the locale I do, the 750 is great.
Locale being less than 200 miles radius, some 750 riders have taken theirs on much longer road trips.
< THIS GAL HAS ALSO & CONTINUES TO DO SO, NO PROBLEM, NO STOCK UNCOMFY SEAT ON MINE, 750 can do it all :-) ;-)
i rode for a straight 2 hrs yesterday and no body pains at all :) i love my bike seat.
I use to drive my 750 on the highway, thing would be screeeaming for an extra gear. My 1100 purrs like a kitten. Nothing against the 750's I loved mine so much I just had to upgrade.
i think a 1100 would be a bit much for me i'm not 5ft and wt 120 :( lol
I did a 1200 mile trip last fall on my 750 with a stock seat. Avg 6-8 hours a day riding with a couple of days layover visiting in spots. It wasn't bad but I did upgrade to a Mustang seat and I'm looking forward to a couple of weeks riding in the Blue Ridge this fall. I stay off the interstates and stick to local hwys and back roads as much as possible which suits me just fine. If I did more interstate, I would definitely want to upgrade to a bigger motor. For now, my 750 makes me very happy.
awesome Theresa :) i can keep up with all on my 750 Aero no problem
I can keep up at normal speed on interstates but when I'm hitting 70-85 I find the vibration exhausting after awhile. I also hate competing for lane space with semi's and SUV's. I'll spend days browsing maps to find interesting routes and they're a lot more interesting than reading billboards. :)
