Wow Guys, Paul,
This thread grew legs.
I've been skiing for a couple of days...
34 miles on skiis yesterday.
So...much of the discussion of problems on this thread would be solved by trading the SXC for a 640 Adventure.
In the bargain you get the big tank, a faring that is the best in the business, a cush drive and a BST carb.
Slap on Touratech panniers and....
"Tonto, she's already ready to ride."
Just saying. Trying to be polite.
Oops, forgot the lights brothers...dual headlights on the Adventure!!!
The SXC is not a travel bike, it can be made into one.
