back in the game guys. g650x number threeeeeee! I still love my 570 Husaberg lots more, but for a bike to ride RTW/ADV around the world i still think there’s nothing better for the price you pay for them overseas. show me a comparable bike for 3-4000usd and i bet it will be either a big red pig (honda650), a WR, or a dirty DR or DRZ….zzzzzz

i outdid myself again, this one bought for 2900usd & 29xxx mileage with the following:
ohlins rear shock
marzocchi shiver front forks
xtank
renazco seat
led aux lighting
leo vince exhaust
EMIG Racing damper (sold one of these used for 500usd!)
flexx bars
heated grips
clutch plate bearing mod
handguards
rear rack
tt bashplate
2 front beaks
all aftermarket levers
good rubber
spares

Now all i need is to find a riding buddy who prioritises RTW riding and willing to front up cash to chase dreams and off-road magic overseas!
