I am vertically challenged and haven't ridden since I broke my back in an accident and was paralyzed so wanted to start out small. I bought a 1995 XV1100, Red in Color but was not satisfied, so paint and chrome time. After 1 season riding it got boring so paint and custom time. It is now ready for another face lift. Not sure what the finished product will look like as when I start I let the bike design itself and just put it together.
