    Hi guys.
    I'm trying to find a reasonably priced lightly used Xcountry.
    Anybody ready to sell, or know of one for sale?

    Location and distance willing to travel? I will keep an eye out on my searches.
    XChallenge out of the question? Saw one in So Cal for good price.

    Anyone got an action cam on their bike? Where have you mounted it?

    I have a drift camera. I like it because it's shaped like a bullet. Less wind resistance. Mounts: top of one helmet, goggle side mount. Engine crash bar mount( forward, reverse or anywhere in between ). And iPhone mount on handle bar ( pics or video )

    Just seen some pics of Comillas on FB this morning, I remember the beautiful Gaudi architecture

    I feel another trip along the Costa Verde and maybe a Pyrenean foray, is in order in 2015...............on a XCountry:clap

    I have the Conti Escape tires mounted at the moment but don´t like them a whole lot. Going back to the good old TKC 80´s

    We know ! Tessa's Husky was sold today and we're picking up her XCountry on Saturday ! :freaky

    It's getting rather "his and hers" but oh well, we'll live.
    It'll be easier on the spare parts and the Beemer is a damn sight easier to work as the Husky is. :puke1

    The aftermath of the 500 KM Fundy Bay (New Brunswick, Canada) Dual Sport Rally. I think two of us need a hosing!

    What's the easiest way to move the front indicators backwards a few inches?

    I have a Puig screen and whilst it fits and works well in deflecting the air off me, the indicators prevent it from being positioned correctly.

    Another option may be to use the shorter stalk signals that are stock for the rear. If they don't stick out as far, you may have the needed clearance.

    I don't visit this thread anymore having sold my X-Country two years ago, but I stumbled on a Craigslist ad that I thought I should share with you guys in case somebody is in the market. OK, you gotta search the Seattle Craigslist because I don't want any mod breathing down my neck for posting a CL link, but it's a 2009 ABS model with a custom seat, a custom paint job, an Emig stabilzer (!), some TT shit, a bunch of other mods and a really decent price. No connection to the seller etc etc and know nothing about it other than what the seller says in the ad.

    Anyone know where to get that wind deflector? Looks like it might be custom job but I'm hoping otherwise.

    Thanks - an unbeatable place to do a trip if ever you get a chance to cross The Pond :)
