Another XCx hits town..

My XCx in white showed up last weekend and is ready to go! First farkle is some sweet Bumot cases in black that are waiting on the garage floor. These cases are awesome and the finish on them is top shelf!

Congrats!

Please post photos of those cases on the bike. I'm still leaning towards the T RAX cases, but I have't committed yet!

Bumot Cases

Those are really sweet. I was thinking of the motech TRAX new cases - which are better? Cost is probably similar...
Thx for any additional ideas as to which is better. Assuming I can for now transfer the triumph panniers from my 2013 XC to the 2015 xcx.

Just took delivery of my XCx tonight (Crystal white as well). Probably going to go with the GIVI Trekker Outback panniers.

Does anyone know if there is a difference between the pannier mounting areas between the 14-15 model years?

I've been told there the same. I know from experience the rear racks are the same mounting. Haven't tried pannier frames.

Cheers

Mine is an XRx in black, breaking it in as weather permits.

I've just ordered the Bumot cases and a Sargent seat. Just installed the Madstad screen last night.

Photo overlay shows that the differences are the engine, front plastic, and muffler heat shield.

Mounting points look the same.

Here's mine. Got out for a couple of hundred Km this morning after several days of torrential rain. Loving the way this thing rides. Just need to get some risers and a few other bits and pieces and she'll be good to go. Haven't decided on luggage yet, probably go with some stuff from a local guy that gets pretty good wraps over here.



Cheers

Iain
