Preparing these motorcycles for around the world travel has been no small task. We have made quite a few changes to both bikes, a lot of modifications to the XChallange as Dave really wanted to create a Rally look. The bikes needing strengthening from the framework upwards, and essential things adding like custom fuel tanks for all those miles ahead of us!
