Pics of dirty-ridden-worn XChallenges??
Here's my contribution. Bought it in may and drove it home to Ontario from Georgia.
This was my second real ride, the Roaming Rally.

Laugh mud/dust/whoops and goop - oh my!

Bikebobber and Tomdog - great pics! Your XChallenges are barely recognizable under the dirt. They are both nicely setup up with luggage and a bunch of other farkles!

I bet those bikes are really happy being in their element - mud/dust/whoops and goop!

Thanks for sharing the pics!

I got sick of that stupid locking gas cap, so I made a replacement part:



Time to go ride it and see how well it works.

I have to do some testing and a few revisions for my next prototype, but I'll keep it in mind that people may want these.

I did have to extend the rack on the side of the X Tank. About a inch or so..
No probs with them.. I'm using a giant loop bag with the racks now. I needed a more water proof set up.

Wicked amazing trailer!!

Colebatch - I saw that trailer and the riding and scenery (along with the photography) look amazing! I think I watched it 7 or 8 times in a row. You guys do some amazing thing on your XChallenges!!

Thanks for posting this - sign me up for a copy when the DVD is ready.

Thumb Truly beautiful -

Wow!!

What beautiful country (and nice farkles). It is so amazing seeing these bikes in their element. I love the pics roosting in the mud, in the snow and on the high peaks. FANTASTIC!

Thank you for sharing them.

Wheels for the X-challenge.

Hello fellow inmates! Over 360 pages! too many for me to look for what I need. Please guide me to a place where I could find the following 1) I need a front wheel for my X-Challenge. I bent mine really bad. I rather get a used one to match what I have. 2) I am thinking of setting my bike with Super Motto wheels as my second set. I don"t want to spend too much money on this set up. Please guide me, there might be something here. Thanks for your help.
