maiden voyage

Finely got this old farm tractor going. Didn't expect a 1000lb bike to jump like that. Scared the hell out of me. Haven't really been on a bike since I wrecked my 9r ninja and that was over 10yrs ago. The nine was ALOT easer to control and about half the weight. My new little toy seems like it will b fun once I get used to it. It still needs a lot of work but for now, a year after I bought the thing,it runs and went for the first ride. It's a tank,can't wait to have a real ride threw the bear tooth pass. Thanks to everyone for the information I got on this site and look forward to getting more.

Nice!........from the title, though maybe someone had broken a bottle of bubbly across the tripple tree of an XS destined to float.

Just remember, they accelerate quick, stop and turn...........just no two at the same time

Thumbs up Great!

Hi, Robert -

Congrats on getting "back in the saddle", as they say!

Once you get them sorted out, these Elevens are all kinds of fun!!
