Kit is spendy, touratech will set you up.
I put 12,315 miles on that bike last summer, trouble free.
Drawbacks are few, but noteworthy.
1. electrical output is pretty limited, there may be fixes for this.
2. Seat comfort is not there, even custom. Not much room for foam, if you want to touch the ground.
3. add ons are expensive.
later in the year in upstate NY - Adirondack Park -
yes, I was having fun.
The X-Challenge is very confidence inspiring in the gravel. Easy to ride.

Not bad focus....camera shake due to a too slow shutter speed. If it was a focus problem, the picture would be sharper in part of the frame and more out of focus in another part of the frame. Because it is equally out of focus it is camera shake. Check out the double image of the fork, the double image confirms it is camera shake. Most consumer grade digital cameras don't have very 'fast' lenses, so the shutter speed in low light conditions has to be extra long to get enough light to make an image. Any shake of the camera while the ccd sensor is exposed registers like you see in the pic above...
BTW, great write up on your trip. You have no idea how envious I am!
