Being young, underpaid, married, and a homeowner means there ain't much $$$ in the bike budget, but I've been squirrelling away a little cash and softening up the wife--"Gee, honey, don't you think you'd enjoy our rides more if I had a bigger bike that rode smoother? "

My father, OTOH, just treated himself to a new Softail Springer Classic...

Any bike is a great bike! My Blue XS-1100 Yamaha was an ugly critter until I got out the chrome cleaner and wax and she cleaned up right purrty!

Attached are a couple shots of my Yamers. I still have the 81 Yamaha XS-1100 Midnight Special which is the black one and sold the Blue 81 Yamaha XS-1100 Model H.

Fly, that XYZ looks like a jumping machine and a nice crotch rocket! You should see the looks on young guys faces when I smoke them at stop lights on my XS-1100. :o
