I’m in the middle of my plans to transform an enduro steed into a lightweight adventure machine.

Currently running the following:

2015 Husky FE350
20L Acerbis Fuel Tank
Steg Pegs (great for standing over long distances)
50T Renthal Sprocket at the back (to give it longer legs on the tarmac)
Motoz Tractionaror Desert Tyres (good combo between longevity and offroad capability)
Tubliss system
Midwest Mountain Engineering clutch Lever (makes 1 finger clutch operation a breeze)
Kreiga OS-Base with 2x 18L and 1x 10L luggage attached

Then there are the upgrades on their way:

Seat Concepts foam & cover upgrade kit
Nomad-ADV Rally tower and screen
Custom built wiring system for 2x 2.1A USB, 1x12V cigarette style plug, and 2x spare terminals for future use

I have planned a mini long weekend adventure for the mid December so hoping to have it all finished by then.
