    My wife and daughter both ride them with me, witch is why going back to the X is not likely. to do so would require my wife to get a dual-sport and she isn't likely to be interested in that. maybe someday I can have both. :D

    Now back to your regulatory scheduled X conversions!

    I use the hell out of Evernote for my adv note-taking. Tapatalk's integration absolutely blows goats, but it's decent from a real browser. On recentish versions of OS X , the Notes app isn't bad, but doesn't do tagging, if that's your thing.

    I will propose this pledge: WHEN I fully recover, and IF my next bike is an X bike, I WILL hold a G650X rendevouz in Moab. I need a goal. It would be late April / early May or late Sept / early Oct, year TBD.

    I can't imagine a bike more suited to the majority of my riding. I'd love something smaller for some more technical, bucket list trails but for my day to day riding, the xCh is about as perfect a bike as I could ask for. Love my steed. I'm still thankful I ran across Jonathan's ad. I was convinced I wouldn't find an X in my price range that wasn't a basket case. Dreams can come true.

    The only time I could be in Moab, is next Oct. We travel south for winter, so that can be on my way. Hope it all works out. cheers

    I’m loving the idea of an XCh meet up. I could probably do late September early October as well. I think I could talk
    Snake Oiler into it too.

    With enough notice I can make it. Its a long haul from NC but worth it.

    +1 from Canada.

    East Coast met up in the spring and West Coast meet-up in the fall so @snooker has time to heal up.
