If you didn't get the book written by Bob, I just listed them on E-Bay. They are $40, and shipping is free if you have it shipped to the U.S. No international shipping. Look under seller merriamxs. Thanks, Karla Jones

As an XJ11 owner, I'll still get some enjoyment out of this book, correct? After all, it is for the most part the same bike/engine.

I am about 2/3 through my copy... very informative... I don't know how he remembered all those trips in such detail... he must have had a journal? I so wish I could ask him some questions, for example how he painted the Samsonite luggage...

PS he certainly pulls no punches in the book... his opinions come through loud and strong! Long live the XS1100!!

I bought his book from his website about a year and a half ago, he personally sent me a few e-mails for help with my coils, book was great, if he's gone we will miss him, he was old school and one of the last of the hands on guys!!

Thanks, Steve

There are those books on ebay today, the ad says there are ten or more available, new and that they are forty bux, includes thirty day media mail shipping. Someone else can buy my copy, thats a little rich for my blood.
