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?

Now that is cool! Never heard of them. A R80GS killer? Shame those things never sold here.

I sold an R80 to get an XLV when they first came out. They were about the same weight but the Honda handled way better and was lot more usable in the bush.

So I see you have started rebuilding yours sharky.
I'm hoping to start getting mine back together in the next week or so.

Maybe we should have a XLV build off .
