What other 750 V twin shaft drive bike can you buy for under $3000?

Got a couple in the shed, bewdy bikes.

They might not handle like a 100 kilo motorcrosser but I'm sure a well ridden XLV would go more places than a GS1200 or maybe an Africa twin that's only ridden by an average rider?

Comments Greg?

This'll be interesting.... in fact if I can work out how to post pics I might just have to add a few of Greg h's efforts on his XLV. Then again, he did sell his XLV and buy a GS1200 so what does that tell you? Just stirring the pot a bit
