Irish? cops on a fleet of XS500's

Some where in Europe,possibly Ireland.Have you ever seen so many XS500's in one place??


  1. Hi Jimmer,
    Just kidding, but the only place where you see more XS500s is maybe here:!/photo.php?fbid=1955550761705&set=o.32819776037&type=3&theater

    As an admirer of your labor of love with your XS builds, please allow me to ask you to also join that group. We're proud that Greg can be found there as well.

    When I posted that same picture on the group's wall last summer, Irish group member John McGouran wrote:
    >> Yes, the Irish Army had 100-odd XS500's in blue and were used as escort bikes for the President on ceremonial duties for a number of years in the 80's. I believe they were donated to some third-world country when they were finished with. <<

    In any case, love your work here and on all your XS500s, Jimmer - it's a huge inspiration and a wealth of knowledge. Thanks a lot!
    Best greetings from Europe,

  2. Robert,thank you for the details about the picture.Thanks for the complements.What are you riding?

  3. Hi Jimmer,
    Thanks for the quick reply! You're welcome for the more than deserved compliments.
    I've been riding XS500s since 1981 and still own three, two of which are street legal (76 and 78 models) plus a garage full of parts to put together the next XS500 once I find the time. Business is good for self-employed writers in Germany right now, so I'm more a hack than a wrencher right now. But that can change quickly...
    Jimmer, I'd be more than honored if you checked out my two XS500s here:!/photo.php?fbid=1698837384031&set=o.32819776037&type=3&theater

    and here:!/photo.php?fbid=1651433438962&set=o.32819776037&type=3&theater

    I know that many members in the group would be happy if you browsed thru the pictures and entries there.
    Should you want to join, I'd be thrilled!
    In any case, thanks for your answer and all the work that you and Greg put into this site and the board.

    Best greetings from Europeand have a fun Sunday,

  4. Total. And. Complete. Awesomeness.
