    That Corbin looks nice. I put a Renazco Racing seat on mine and it's great, though it doesn't have the back support you're describing.

    An item of note is carrying much on the rear rack on the X-Challenge. The original subframe is really light on this bike. I learned this when I replaced it with a Touratech steel subframe because I installed bags on the bike. My guess is it wouldn't take too many whacks with any weight on the rear rack to cause a fracture/failure of the original aluminum sub-frame. I'm sure that with casual riding this wouldn't be an issue but I'd be concerned if I hung much over 20 pounds on the tail end and rode on rough stuff.

    In the end, you will regret much more those things you didn't do, than those which you did.

    Nice looking. I'm curious. I tried to make the Wunderlich lift handle work from my R1150R, but I couldn't find a good mounting point. How did you attach the lifting handle? ( Do you have a picture? )

    What mount did you use for your PIAA lights?

    Thanks for posting the pictures of your nice bike.

    i used the frame the Jesse boxes attach to for the lift handle and the piaa lights came in a kit for the F650 which included the mount. sorry i don't have a pic of the piaa mount.

    Thanks for showing me how you attached the lift handle. Would not work for me since I don't have those bags. I really liked the handle on my R1150R and have been trying to come up with something for the F650 thumper.

    Perhaps a bracket can be attached to the frame ? im using the BMW Case system ...there is nothing that is attached to that point in the frame so perhaps something can be fabricated so that one of these Wunderlich frame handles can be retrofitted.

    I have Happy Trails bags, so the frame is available. I just haven't figured out a good way to attach a lifting handle without getting in the way of the rear peg.
