If you are going to do a wholesale bike prep, like I did, then you can also buy an X-Moto ... the only part thats different, that you wouldnt be changing anyway is the front and rear hub and sprocket carrier. All the other different parts like suspension and wheels, I would change anyway, even if I bought an X-Challenge ... so X-Challenge or X-moto there is not a lot of difference if you are going to do a wholesale full bike prep. X-Motos with 3000-5000 km and no off road use at all are cheaper and easier to find than low mileage X-Challenges.
There are currently 47 X's of all types for sale in USA.

Love it! Ready and waiting for your reports to fathom themselves to my computer screen. I've read all of the so far plus the DVD.

What do you think will be the longest distance between fuel stops / min required fuel range of your bike ?

As much seat time as you manage, riding, photographing the world and weaving stories has become a career. Now all you have to do is figure out how to make it pay to support you in the style you desire.

I always enjoy your reports.

Will also need to find excuses to explain to the boss why less work is getting done until this is over.

Can't wait for the rest. Thanks for sharing Walter.
