Honestly, I just find a flat rock or a stick and kick it under the foot. I've never had a problem using this method. The problem with the add on foot is to not have a sharp edge to catch your pants on.... Well, for me anyway

hmmm, that reminds me..... Maybe I can sell flat rocks for the X Challenge in the vendors section When I rode a Triumph Daytona, I kept a small disc of steel in my tank bag, so the stand wouldn't sink into the pavement

Hey Max, wanna do Heroes Legend next year as a team?

Don't tempt me Aron. It's high (as in "very high") on my list for 2009. I am secretly seriously thinking about it. But I believe a team must consist of three people: two in the car,and one on the bike. You don't want to fly all the way to Europe to drive a car for two weeks do you?

Project G650X Adventure

I sold my KTM 640 Adventure a while back thinking the new 690 Adventure was just over the horizon. Well, I got sick of waiting and decided that the X challenge would be a great substitute "template" to start from. So, here it is so far.... I will be installing the new TT tank, Ohlins, and Wirth front within the next few weeks.

Make sure you change the paper filter for a foam air filter, this is a must! Congratulations on your new bike!

Small Moto Fizz

The small Moto Fizz bag works great. I bought it last year at the same time as my larger one thinking it might come in handy....

Mine is just about 1 ltr...(33oz). It's a very tight fit using the original cannister clamps, not going anywhere.

Keep me in mind. When you get serious, or should I say more serious, drop me a PM. I sent my entry form into Pikes peak a few weeks ago ,so thats got my attention at the moment

The X is going to be getting a beating this year

Where did you get the centerstand?

I remember reading about one hear, probably somewhere in this thread, but there were reports that it was not stable. You had any issues with yours?
