It's been good to hear other people's experiences. Most of them have aligned with mine or what I thought.

In my old age (of 45), I'm starting to believe it's better to just leave things alone.

Very nice. How about a pic of the other side? Is the front end from a G650xchallenge?

That is indeed very nice... if it had a round headlight it would be near perfect!

Hey prutser. Nice bike! Was my understanding that the x challenge triple is plug and Play? Is this true or did you have to modify??

Hey Hardwaregrrl.

The X Triple Should fit with some small mods. But i only used the fender ,headlight and hub.
I used Kite triple clamps to go with the fork dimensions.(a WP48mm)


And I made a new stem.

The X fork would not be a real big improvement.
