Looks great!! Thanks for showing us... It looks like you cleaned out Touratech's X-C catalog!!

Is the chain guide really necessary?

The chain guide is not really necessary if you keep the chain at the right tension.

I tend to keep it on the loose side (always better than to have it too tight) and for peace of mind fitted the chainguide.

BMW Handguards?

What are your opinions on the BMW handguards? I tend to like the Cycra handguards -I've have them on my XR400, and they are strong.... they replaced Acerbis hadnguards that never seemed to stay in place and were softer (I could bend the metal bar by hand on the Acerbis).

Are the BMW guards strong? Do they seem to stay in place well in a fall? Do they get bent out of shape?

I installed the Moose Racing guards and deflectors and I can tell you they stay put and it doesn't matter how hard they hit the ground.

That looks awesome Jack! Is that gizmo next to the GPS a clock + voltmeter? Or does it also act as a shift light?

Hey: That Gizmo is an ICO unit. An odometer/clock used by enduro/rally racers to measure distance traveled. It's resetable by the thumb switch on the left handgrip. The X drives the stock odometer by the rear wheel and is not accurate. It also is used as a clock to tell when to enter the Time Controls. All this info is important during the transits between stages so you don't get time penalty's. Your going to fast to use them during the stages however. Maybe just a quick glance at the odo to see how much further the stage is, or a quick look at the GPS to see the road ahead.

The little unit on top of that is a voltmeter for the lights, two HIDs and a low beam for the highway.
