Shows how wide a range of options are available and how we can individualize our bikes to our own taste.

Thanks for doing all this work and posting up all the info on your website.

HeHeHe... your mod thread was my inspiration buddy! There were a few more mods I didn't document that came straight from you... the stainless mesh screen over my radiator fins, the clear protective sheet over my headlight, what about the front fender extender... anyhow yeah I get your point and it is very interesting indeed! I'm still thinking about a front fork progressive spring and a seat mod...

The best I can do is send you a template you can print out... I will get that onto the web page one of these days. or PM me if you are interested and I'll do it sooner.

Nice job at documenting your mods, you have a nicely setup machine.

One of those nights you read the XCo thread while you were drinking heavily I suspect Rob, and didn't see my "grand unveiling" notice...

My XCh is definitely getting there. I have no urge to tour on it and if I ever do then I would have to buy a bunch more $$$$ crap so that prolly won't happen. I DO LIKE the BLACK though!

I can't begin to say how thankful I am for the work you did building that page. I just got my g650 XC and had already been reading your page for a few weeks planning what I was going to do to it. It's so detailed, unbiased and convenient

well done sir very well done

I'm stoked people have thanked me more than expected. I really did go a bit nuts on that, I started it by just wanting notes I could save and look at for myself and just share highlights, then I just didn't stop. I blame Drone. He did his first. Now it is somewhat out of date but still useful.
Ride on brothers!
