fossil92 is pretty much bang on with his reply. All you have to remember about Wings is they were designed from the get go to be high mile bikes, something no other bike was purposely engineered for until Honda changed the rules. If you pick up an 1100, try and find one that has been ridden regularly and properly maintained. That way all the hoses and rubber parts should be sound and the fluids and seals should be good. It should be fairly obvious if there are weaknesses in the bike due to neglect or lack of use. What's the seat height on your Maxim 30.5"? Should be not be much of a stretch on the 1100 at 31.3" for you to put your feet down. Yes it's heavier, but lots of the weight is carried down low so it won't take long to get used to it since the Maxim is a tad top heavy.
