Yeah the Italians are still around.

The XLr was not getting ridden enough and I have a friend who had inquired about it a few years back. He's a Vietnam Vet who earned our respect a long time ago. So I called him up and made him an offer he couldn't refuse.

A friend of his flew in to Philly and rode it back to NM for him.

I feel like it's in good hands.

Added another 1,800 or so miles to my 2006 Sporty to push it over the 260,000 mile mark and took 4th out of 22 in a Rally. Working on the write-up now and hope to post on my blog in a week or so

I put around 1,800 miles on my new XR1200 clutch parts this past weekend and it worked great.

My replacement ignition module will be arriving today and god willing I might get her running. It's been over a year, was waiting for hubby to help but he got sidelined with back issues. So I watched some you-tube and got help from this site to find the exact part number. Fingers crossed!
