I have got to make it down to the netherlands.......oh and sweet bike!
Just thought it would give her a little more exposure ! Doesn't everyone think Maggie needs a little more - exposure !?
Yeah. What he said!
The leg humping resumes:)
You'll like the xcountry Maggie. My wife has done 50,000 ks on hers in the last couple of years on dirt and sand and whatever and it has been great. With the rotax motor it has to be one of the most under estimated bikes for shorter riders.
Im wondering if a long epic trip could not have been made just as well, if not better, with more of the stock set-up.
That big skinny front wheel is good for rolling over very rough terrain but for a variety of broken asphalt and dirt roads, I like the 19 inch. Handles better on hard surface and gives more traction too.
I admire this effort. Do it while you can ! No kids or entanglements of life to hold you back is a good time.
Whoa shit, seems like you have a ton of money to spend. Care to teel how much so far?
Those guys are doing everything free for her just to have her hang-out around their shop !
I'm too old and ugly to fall for that, sorry
And it helps she lives abt. 250 kms away also
If everything else has gone south then perhaps you don't have much to offer, apart from being well equipped and good with your tools
Hahahahaha shave your face Erik, shave your face! Hahahaha
Aha! You are happy that I live 250kms away!! I'm NOT!!!!
I sent a spy this monday :eek1
The bike looks very good he said!! Compliments! You know what you are doing! Hope to see you soon
Nice bike build.
Did you ever get your other bike back from after the accident?
The bike (and also Allans bike) arrived 16th of January :eek1 It took a while, but they were in good order though!!
After Bas did some stuff on the bike, I brought the bike to 'Hot Rod Welding' Erik in Zwaanshoek. The bike will get a tremendous make over by Erik! First of all:Rally fairing (including mount) and Rally dashboard. Besides that he will manufacture an X-rack, 9L X-tank, and protection parts on it.
Regarding the Rally Fairing: Erik made a dozen of X-Challenge fairings the last few months, but one for an X-Country he has not made before. Mine will be the first one!
And as the X-Country, especially the seat of it, is much much lower than the X-Challange, the Fairing (of course the mount included) had to decline as much as possible. Erik managed it to rebuild the mount 8cm lower than the mount on the X-Challenge! So the Fairing will also be lower for 8cm!
I havent seen it live yet
. Unfortunately.... But Im lucky Erik sends me pictures every now and then.
Gasoline tanks at Hot Rod Erik
Erik and Kees
When you think the yellow part in white, its pretty cool isnt it??
This is the status for now! Hope to have more new pics soon!! Thanksss Erik, for all the work up till now (and of course Bas too, with all the questions I have
From Erik, the bike will go to Hyperpro Bas and Rayz seats. To be continued!!!
Bye bye, kiss, Maggie
Maggie, it is hard to tell by the photos and it wasn't on Walters list, but have you replaced the standard gear shift lever for a steel model from Yamaha or TT?
Hey Cruzz! Aha somebody who's paying attention!! :) Erik had some gear shift levers in stock. I don't know which mark! One who will bend instead of break.
Besides this item, I think I need an other stand too (is it a stand in English?). This one is to short.
Good stuff Maggie, pretty sure Eric can add a bit to your current side stand.
You fitting a centre stand as well?
Do you stand a lot when riding, I can recommend the Pivot Pegs over the standard ones if you do, plus something like Tag Metals hand grips for extra comfort and longevity.
Yebbut, I'm envisioning the white part in yellow, like mandarin bmw'esque yellow fairings? Yummy, colourful - like yourself! Think about it :)
