    The XS650 is a lovely motor Russell, far superior to British unit twins of the time. Stupidly I swopped it for this monster. Talk about 'Tea Trolley Handling'. Might even rival those Kwaka triples!

    love it...,
    always favoured the standard ballbous look of the xs1100 over the sport version,but i loved the all blackness and big round searchlight and handlebar fairing of the "s" ....which made the dodgey handling even dodgier ,i remember buying the big 5.5 gallon tank to stick on,but i dont think i ever did,longest time i ever owned the same bike...12yrs .....great machines and great picture

    I owned this bike for nearly 20 years, my first road bike! And I performed a ďResto-ModĒ, on it. A Ď79 Harley Low Rider, I literally rode it until it flew apart! And then spent a few years restoring it, all original numbers but lots of new parts, original paint! Souped up the engine and transmission, replaced every bearing and race, and replaced all wires! I turned every single screw myself with hand tools. And it broke my heart to sell it, like selling one of your children. But I got a damn fine price for it!

    Now we are talking...! My latest is a Twin Cam 88 Heritage Softail Classic and I bloody love it. Only bought by me in July last year and only done around 100 miles with me in control but hey, this is a new year and all willing I have a lot of miles still to do.

    Now thatís a real cruiser! I had a Ď96 Soft Tail Springer for many years. Such a low seat height, and relative comfort, and real power when you twist the wick! Very nice, looks great in black.

    This is my present bike, itís a Ď95, but was in such great, almost new, condition at such a great price I could not resist! Itís a Road King, built on the touring frame, which makes a difference in comfort. The previous owner installed a cam and re jetted the carb, so itís got pep! Iíve had it for two years, and like you I canít wait for Spring so I can put some miles on it.
