In fact the XL500S which was the bigger brother, appeared in 1979 with the same huge wheel, which was again dumped with the XL500R of 1982.
The 23 inch wheel made the bike unstable at high speed, but (especially the 500) were the best wheelie machines then!
I just had my bike stolen in front of me and I couldn't do anything... :( The thief was too fast and covered in a mask. It's not the first time it happened to me and I'm really pissed o**. So do you know any good GPs devices or protection I could use? Please, let me know.
Hey everybody. So I work for a tow company and we impounded this bike. Employees are allowed to purchase any vehicle that has been sitting at our impound for an extended period of time for $500 flat. It's most likely inoperable as i believe it was abandoned but there is no way to get it checked...
[b]What is the smallest object that has knocked you down in a corner?[b]
This question was suggested by photobug. Thanks for another great question!
I haven't had anything knock me down, but I think sand would definitely do it and that's pretty small!
