Nice one Dalec.
The Blue Gilimoto tank is growing on me.
I lost those 2 same bolts on my exhaust shield even with super loctite.
Here's mine loaded for 2 up camping, the daughter just loves it.
The big Blue XT660R pig is brilliant at doing just about anything.
And you gotta love that Wolfman lugage.

Robo - you have some nice roads not too far from you.... especially those in the Border Ranges and further south west to Toonumbar - ideal territory for the XTR (for starters )! I miss this area a lot (former BrisVegan), but my exile to the UK isn't about to end soon

Have you got a photo of the rear of the bike with the full Wolfman setup? I like the idea and need to do something for the next trip. The army bags were great (and bloody cheap) but their attachment to the bike wasn't ideal and I felt the bike was too wide with them due to the pannier rails. I wasn't brave enough to run them without though

Cheers,
Dale

Yeah mate, here you go.
Also have the Wolfman tank panniers now as well and I change the Wolfman enduro pocket which I use when solo riding as I don't smack the family jewels on it while standing up, for the Wolfman Expedition small tank bag for 2 up riding. So the contents (tool roll, etc) of the Wolfman Peak Tailbag (the one that sits on the back of the seat) just gets transferred into the small Expedition tank bag. Both the enduro pocket and tank bag use the same strapping with 4 quick release buckles, so makes it it easy to change between the two.

Thanks mate - looks like a nice modular setup there!

I have the Wolfman Expedition tank bag and the family jewels are definitely not impressed. I wasn't sure whether this was related to the bigger tank or not as no one else mentioned this issue???

BTW - is your tail tidy a home made item, looks great!

Nice bikes out there! Here's mine:




Just one question: I'm about to change tires, and I doubt if we can put tubeless tires in our rims. Is it posible?

Nope. You'll have to install "tubliss" to do so, otherwise you have to use inner tubes.

Bashplate

In case you're looking for a not-so-expensive, good looking bashplate for your XT's, here you are:



Bought it to moto-discovery.com, a greek company with lots of stuf for trail bikes.
Some pics:





I have to mount it now, I'll post some pictures later when mounted.

Nice setup OierXT!

I'm sure betitou answered your question.... however, you can install tubeless tyres on the XTR rims but you will still require the tubes. Defeats the purpose of tubeless tyres though. I only provide this slightly different answer in case the tyres that you wanted to buy only come in the tubeless version. If this is the case, they will be harder to get off the rim due to the stronger bead.

Awesome find and a cracking price!!! Looking forward to your thoughts on the product after fitment as this is *way* cheaper than the TT/OTR item!

Hello again,

Well, this saturday I took a ride on my bike with the new bashplate instaled. Mainly I rode by a long, twisty, rocky singletrack, which allowed me to test the bashplate... and indeed I tested it, because it touched the floor several times.

I surely would buy it again, As rocks and hard terrain hit it, I could hear the metal receiving the impacts, so it did its job, protecting the exhausts. It bended a little bit when a big rock hit it, but neither the bracket nor the bashplate itself were damaged.

Sorry Helmut but I can't help you with the screen, I've the factory tall one and know nothing about that you mention.

By the way, I put a new set of Heidenau K60 tires, not the Scout but the winter ones. Quite happy with them, I've only ridden about 130kms but they work pretty well on the tarmac. I'll have to test them on the basque mud...
