Default R.i.p. Xct :(

Well, my shop burned to the ground with my bikes in it. Completely destroyed, all the aluminum was puddled around it when it cooled off.

Luckily no one got hurt and the trees around it didn't catch but damn that's hard to look at.

Aw man! That so sucks! Looks like you also lost a Sportster. Sure hope you had comprehensive insurance but most importantly, as already been said, no one was hurt.

Imagine how hot that had to get to melt the frame and front fork like that.

Yeah Geico is workin up an estimate for me. I couldn't really see the Victory burning, the harley in front of it though I could see burning pretty clearly. The license place melted right into the puddle of aluminum on the victory it got so hot. I am not sure about replacement yet, I really loved the XCT though so that would be my first thought, although since I've been doing much less long distance and mostly short rides, the Magnum has my eye as well.

Sorry for your loss but on the positive side, you get a new one!
Any insight into what may have caused the fire?
