XS Eleven Heaven

Just received my copy of Bob Jones Book XS Eleven Heaven ! I know it's been posted on here before but there are new members coming on board every day. I spoke with his wife Karla on the phone today and is one neat gal. This book appears to be absent from all other sources. It originally sold for $40. She has the remainder copies of this book in her posession (sp). These are brand new hard cover numbered editions. She has them listed on ebay for $25 plus shipping. I can honestly say if you own a XS1100 this is a MUST OWN book to get the full history of the bike plus tales of Bob's trips on his bike as well as great technical info on mods and maintenance. Here is the link to the ebay sale.

high shipping to NZ

The Postal Service in NZ is very expensive because the addresses keep moving.

Hope you guys start settling down soon.

I wonder what happened to all his custom bikes. Anyone on here know where they went? I've got the Limie bike and Russ79 has the Navy bike. I don't have any idea what happened to the others besides his long miles bike, which wasn't a custom.
