You only lost went running out o gas ,the rest is exploring - trailtrick
I always like this shot, it is in Idaho, were we spent a week exploring around Stanley.
With mine I find a tank bag and a rear 30L dry bag allows plenty of storage. Though in the land of cheap accommodation and dinning, there’s no requirement to carry camping gear.
Currently living with only bikes, boats and boxes here and there..........................
fishenough hello there yea gas milage is real good thats why i got it in the first place a little over 100 miles per tank depending on the ride looking foward to some camping trips this summer and i hope i can fish enough myself (sorry i could't help myself )
My wife's expeditionary XT225.
Heyduke, my wife and I both read your wife's entertaining thread about learning to ride. My wife is 5' too so your missus is an inspiration to her. How much did you have to lower that bike so she could flat foot it like I'm seeing in the pictures?
"We find after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us...In this a journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it."

As she became more confident, we added rear preload and slid the forks back down in the triple clamps. She is now comfortable with it at stock height, but with the seat cut down. She can't exactly "flat foot" it like in the pics above, but close.
After a couple of years of ALOT of off road riding, she is out-riding the bike, wishing for better suspension and more power. Right now we're trying to figure out what to do... find a different bike to make work for her, or spend alot on this one and try to creat the "ultimate" XT225. Too bad there aren't any decent options for a 5'0" person out there. That being said, the XT225 is a great bike- she's just asking too much of it now.
