Previously, I had a 98 XX for about 4 years, 18k mi. ridden.. like a dummy I sold it thinking that I was making garage room for other bikes.

The "Bird" is a great bike.
I've wanted one for years, especially the fuel injected model.

Good luck and let us know if she comes home with you !

Cool

Picked up my 03 XX, as advertised: almost stock (aftermarket chrome barend plugs, BMW grips), never been down, 137xx mi. Front tire needs replacement, rear tire may have a few rides left, chain kinda rusty, sprockets look decent.
Me found good deal on XX again:
