Whatever happened to my XLV?
On the way home from Wintersun 2004 a gearbox bearing failed completely,
filling the engine with steel and aluminium scrap, pretty much destroying the
engine. Oddly enough, it got home anyway, and it was only when
I drained the oil and a ball-bearing or two fell out that I realized
just how badly I'd stuffed it. If I'd had the sense to stop in Ouyen,
there'd be a lot more recoverable.
The good news is, I've just sourced a replacement engine from Greg H,
and hopefully it'll be returning to the road soon!

What's in a Name?
That still doesn't explain the R, of course :-)
