I loved this bike. Got one in early 80 (Black with gold metal flake).'79 Yamaha XS1100 special. Smooth and strong, great bike. I guess since I started out on this bike it must be why I have been craving another inline four recently.
The xl 250 (not sure what year) was the first bike I ever rode (not until 2000 when i was old enough) My dad bought it new. And it's still running.first street type bike was a 1973 Honda xl 250 enduro street and trail ,very fun bike and way simpler days for sure . that was way back in 1978 man remember it like yesterday but looking at numbers it was so long ago. btk572
