Great magazine, I finally subscribed. The last few months has seen coverage of everything from the 300EXC, 625 SXC, 450EXC, and the interesting article on your bike, and the 660 Rallye.

I think it would be very interesting to ride your bike, and a stock ADV back to back. So many different ways to go about revalving and spring rates. It Sounds like your setup is ideal.

- alum KTM boxes (not pictured ... sort of an anti-mod - I bought the luggage, but there were missing parts - I just got them in the mail a couple days ago after a 3+ month wait ??)
Did you get this through KTM, or Touratech? I'd like your opinions when you get it all set up. I'm 50/50 on my Zega's, but the left one is almost two inches farther out then I feel it should be, and the right side is 3/4 to an 1" farther out, not to mention the setup really should be two 35L, IMHO, rather then the 41L on the right hand side. If I had known I would have ditched my R/H 41L for a 35L. When you add all the above together it's almost an extra 6 inches of width. But for solo tours, security, and rainy days, I think they will be worth it. Though, I will be using a soft bag setup like RapidTwins on the more technical trips, I find I pack way too much in the Zegas for this kind of riding, and the Katoom doesn't like it. Cheers, Mack
