    Ian Reed and Darren Godden both have X challenges. They make me want to get one. Much faster than my bike. They are on the FB site adv ride nz.

    Hi Scott, i just happen to know of an xchallenge in good knick for lowest price ive ever seen one for at 6500. 29000km, shop serviced at boyds, hamilton. Ive ridden it and motor/trans/brake system is strong and solid. Just needs new tyres and bath unless i sell him mine. Anyone else interested just contact me here or fb.

    Hey Pablo, I’ve tried by clicking the ‘link’ button and entering the hyperlink but didn’t work. Then I just cut and pasted the link right here and it seems to work fine! So try that perhaps? Curious what u want to show…

    nothing much, a short vid I made. The link worked if I tried it but sometimes is nicer to have it embedded. Alternatively you can copy and past the following URL https://youtu.be/yIwejYRgkmQ

    The Xcountry was gone but he was still listing a XChallenge, DR650, and KTM 620 Adventure.

    Sorry for late reply, im out of the country on a waka but there’s a guy i know in Northland selling an xchallenge. Its about 30k and in ok shape. needed new tyres but ran well and strong. He was after 7grand. I live up there so happy to help out if i can.

    My x is my go-to bike for anything other than road. Hope the winter riding is good, missing the bikes!

    Hi Daniel,

    Nice, but remember not pics it didn’t happen 😀

    The air shock was Ok, I’ve used it for 60K+, then changed it to Hyperpro which I like more. However I wouldn’t say its must change item then again its a personal opinion. For instance most people change the seat and for me the seat is just fine (I stand most of the time, except on the road :D)
