The Bike

I will be riding my G650 Xchallenge on this trip. I took it to CO last year, I really like this bike. Out of the box, it needed some upgrades as most bikes do, so I have made a few monor changes.

Scheffelmier bash plate
Scheffelmier axle bushings
Functional front fender
Buell Headlight housing on custom home built bracket
Modified KTM 950 windscreen
Marzocchi Shiver forks
Ohlins Shock
H&B Pannier racks
Touratech luggage rack
Wolfman dry bags
Power Commander V
Leo Vice slipon exhaust

She runs pretty good, and rides really nice, we will see how she does loaded down.

So here she is, all packed and ready to go.

Before you guys start making comments about Hillbillies and Gypsies, I only packed what I absolutely needed, I even left a few pairs of undies, and some socks at the house.

We are camping every night, and there is a 250 mile stretch between fuel stops, so I need to lug 2 extra gallons. Somewhere along the way some lucky home owner may get a couple free gas cans, we will see how long I need to lug these along.

We leave tomorrow at dawn.
