OK, I'll make some mods to the 525, and take it on the test ride to Norway. *IF* it handles that OK, maybe I'll take it RTW. In the meantime I'm gonna be on the lookout for a decent XR400, just in case.

Right, so with that in mind... my 525 is a stock MXC, other than a DOMO exhaust. What mods would you recommend for covering long distances?

My list is quite extensive, but essentials look to be :

- HT Racing oil cooler
- Renazco seat
- some form of windshield
- pro moto billet rack

I also need to get the rest of the lighting kit installed, all the switches are installed, but no indicators :-/

Anything else?
'12 KTM 990 Adventure
'09 KTM 950 Super Enduro Erzberg (41/100)
'04 KTM 525 MXC
'00 Ducati 748 Biposto
'89 Honda Camino (The Adventure Moped)
