Looks good! What's the trip plan? Are you doing a shakedown cruise before departure?

I have 4-5 months before the first trip. ( 4 days to the Touratech/ Ovrrland rally. ). Then 2 weeks later there is a 1,000 mile trip, 700 miles are off-road .
Then the RTW trip in about 5 years.

Got home and parked the NC and hopped on the XT and took a ride.Got some gas and put a few miles on it.
It ran pretty well and handled like a under powered,knobbie tired dirt bike.
Hehe

Looks great, really like the work you did on the racks. Went thru your thread early last week. Should have checked back in sooner. Good job!

I really like this...Good job. Makes me wish I'd kept mine, I sold it because upgrades/farkles weren't readily available for the XT and I was chasing more power so I went into a KLR phase. Turns out...I just needed more vision/imagination.

The XT350 Overland build .

I'm a cheap SOB,so I make everything I can,even though I can buy it.There is a good thing about making everything,I can buy bikes that don't have very good aftermarket support. !!.

Went for about a 15 mile ride today to see how it did on the freeway.It did pretty well,60mph is about all I would want to cruise at for any length of time.I'm running 15/43 gearing so maybe I will go up 1 tooth on the front??.

I really like the Clubman handlebar you used for the rear rack....I'll take that idea thank you very much!

Nice, simple home made build...well done

I was going to post up asking how it was going, and see you already finished it! Good show, mate!

So what's the 1% left to do? Christen it with her new name? (providing an opourtunity to consume the champagne, simply so it doesn't go to waste, of course)

Mount new rear tire on extra wheel ,maybe a SC seat and lots of fiddling with the suspension and the carb .
And lots of riding !!.
