Feedback on new XT660 please
With a heavy heart im beginning to face the reality that my old 34l is unlikely to survive another continental crossing and so Im looking to replace the old steed.
Im of the old school that believes bikes should be purely mechanical things that can be fixed with a few basic tools on the side of teh road in Sudan if necessary -so things like fuel injection worry me. As does the new trend in bikes and cars that almost look rugged, but actually cant manage more off roading than a pavement mount. And what of my hard luggage that is sure to bend the frame of a lesser machine? So what id really like to hear is weather anyone has done any hard riding, like trans Africa, on the new bike and how it went and what if any modifications were necessary.
Thanks, in anticipation,
