This picture show's the line running between the frame tube too, should not take much change exept for some rerouting and perhaps a few inches of extra line?

Just back from a three day pre-rally event with 700+ km of hard (sometimes harder) riding. We were three 690 and two crf´s (amongs others) and no 690 missed a beat, but one crf became a "trailer queen"....

Now, we don´t want this thread to Jo Mama, do we?

Was thinking more of a XR650 heart!I love Honda quality!
KTMs look good,but as an overland bike,they are too fragile!
It'll be an XT660Z Tenere if i ever get back to my roost,a bit
heavier,and a little less power,but it'll go the distance! :)

Fragile? They are a performance bike that requires performance/preventative maintenance

You left out crap suspension and needing loads of dollars to be spent on wide pegs, decent bars etc etc. Not to mention poor brakes

So it's been awhile and I have not done much, but what have done is ico unit and switches custom suade rally seat and yesteday i replaced my 275mm shock with a 285mm travel modded shock
And just ordered the 2012 rally tanks and seat , I have Evil invader to thank for doing what I should have done in the first place , probly would have saved a bunch of money as well.

Almost forgot I dropped a bolt in the rear tank spent 4hours tring to get it out without success ,let's call it a emergency spare.

Try strong magnet (neodymium), I get them from old hard disk, tape it to the stick or wire and I had great success retrieving bolts from weird places.

Took the 690 out for blast this morning on 160km loop of dirt road , the new Shock is sweet . Now that it sits higher in the stroke it feels really plush. I have not touched the clickers yet so I should be able to get it better I hope .
