Hi, I am back

Hi all, Sold all my bikes including my XS1100's a while back. Just bought a 1987 Yamaha XV1100 Gold Addition in near mint OEM condition. I will still chirp in if I can help any XS owners from what I had learned on mine. My XS1100's taught more about working on a bike then all the other 10+ bikes I have owned put together LOL. Many here know what I mean. Nice to be back, will keep the XV comments to the "other bike" page when I get it. Lon

Hey Lon, GREAT to have you back. It certainly has been awhile.

Glad to hear you still have 2 wheels rolling.
Look forward to you posting again.

Jeff

Thanks Jeff! I switched from Jack Denials to beer, so my late night post should be a lot less colorful LOL. Had some health problems so I sold my bikes. Still have some problems, just decided to stop living when I am dead! I don't know much about this XV Virago 1100, except it is lighter and closer to the ground, so my old and feeble legs my just be able to hold it up
