    Hi Walter,
    Great journeys you have shared, so inspiring! I have looked at photos of your bike and would like to know what exhaust you have on it in 2012? Does not appear to be OEM.

    Best regards,

    Ha.

    There are over 134 pages dedicated to this bike only, hosted by Sir Walter himself. I am only about 30 pages in, I don't own an X Challenge. :evil

    Touch base in a year after reading this thread.

    I'm only on page 154 of this ridiculous RR but amongst all the amazing pictures of scenery I have seen, this is my favorite picture so far. Everybody loves a motorcycle.

    What a trip! Great crew. Best RR ever, it caused me some nice sleepless nights already and also it gave my GF reason to complain...
    Discovered it only recently but already made it almost to page 100. I just can't wait to read it all and the other RRs too! I got a XC last summer and now I know what to do. :D

    So, Prutser, if you guys liked the Lada rallye so much, how about this one?? :rofl

    Thanks for the update! Is there any estimation, even a rough one, of when it's going to be ready? (not that I'm impatient or anything :lol3)

    Hehe. I'll stay in the country this year, have promised my wife, we have 10 years wedding anniversary this summer.
    Last year EtronX and I had a 2,5 week, 7400km trip to Kola Peninsula.
    But right now it's snowing and cold here in Norway so I definitely need some inspiration to go exploring ;-)

    I have read this road report from start to finish. It has been inspiring and sometimes scary :huh. While I don't see myself doing a huge of off road trip of this nature it has (in part) being the inspiration for a "pole to pole" trans America trip with a modified KLR 650. Keeping off the Pan American highway of course. :lol3

    Thanks to everyone for their collective wisdom.:clap
