Bought a new 2013 XCW 500!

I won't get it until next week.

I have a Rekluse and a LHRB kit in my hands.

I also have a set of KTM bark busters and a set of 42mm risers on order.

What else do I really need to get started?

I put a suede/leather Seat Concepts seat kit on mine pretty quick,best mod so far. Stock seat squashes down and gets more and more painful.

Are you happy with the Wolfman daytripper bags and rolie bag on the 500 ?

I'm looking at getting something like that or the Giant Loop Mojavi.

Get a quality skid plate. Lots of rocks get kicked up into my plate all the time.

Very much so. Even riding the gnarliest stuff you never know they are there and I like the flexibility the wolfman provides in that I can change the size of the rear bag to match my day's needs.

The daytrippers hold a surprising amount - I carry all of my tools, two spare tubes, co2, 3 full size tire irons, emergency items like quicksteel and duct tape and the things aren't half full.

The small rollie holds my rain coat and rain gloves and that's about it.
I do have medium and large rollies as well if I need more room.... or I can run without a rollie at all.

Hope this helps.


Small rollie has my rain coat and rain gloves in it in this photo - it doesn't interfere with my backpack at all.

Thanks for that info, very useful.
I'm still tossing around the Daytrippers vs the GL Mojavi but I reckon I'd incorporate a rolie bag in the center with either setup.
Guessing the daytrippers with a medium rolie bag in the center would carry enough for a few nights away if you weren't camping.

Since I currently do not own a Rally Bike... Odds are good there will be one in the future. Have the first prototype frames in hand.
I have a 450x Dakar build project, first in line.

We did a 400+mi DS ride this weekend and that was the setup I used, just the Daytrippers and a Rollie bag strapped down on top of my Thermarest. It worked great, stayed put and rode well.
