Sadly, I had to put my XS11's in the shed down the hill for winter. We had snow this morning and momma wants her half of the garage for her car. :-( I do have the Honda ST1300 ready to ride in the garage however. It is depressing as I have tuned the 2 XS11's and they were running fine.

No cars in my garage. Just 3 motorcycles and tons of storage stuff and some tools. Two cars in the driveway.

Hope you were at least able to drain the carb fuel on those two XS11's Sid.

Yeah, I should do that. Pretty easy on the carbs from the 81H and the viton tipped fuel valve should keep the gas from flowing.

On the Road - sort of

First time "down the road" with the old girl since 2013 at least. Pretty much an end to end renovation. Still have a few odds and ends to sort out.
