My RTW XChallenge

Here are a few pix of my XChallenge.
I made the bike to travel trough Africa.
The 25th of october I start my overland from Belgium to South Africa and maybe back home.
Before I will made a try out in Morocco for 2 weeks starting the 24th of April.

If you have questions, shoot.
(you only have to except that my English is very bad )

Very nice!

How did you extend the wiring harness for the instrumentation in order to mount it that high?

I only had to extend the wiring of the handlebar. The one for the instrument cluster was just long enough. When I bought the bike, it had the ABS. I took of the ABS and that was a lot of work to modify the cable harness.

Nice bike! That's how I would set up an X-Challenge if I had one.

before I used the TT spray guard (and I didn't used indicators), but in mud it didn't protect enough.

It is a Ohlins from TT. They are special made for TT, so they are different to the one you can buy from Ohlins.
I also placed a spacer inside of it to make the bike a little lower.
