Hello everybody

as a long timer , i had made some big rides

Greece before + northern EU on a 125

Bulgaria and suburbs on a himalayan in 19'

Welcome - yeah the XT was a great machine, still is. Super reliable and just right with power vs. weight.


If an XT can do it then a Himma with a 477 kit should do it, be more comfortable and still a simple motorcycle.

Hello guys .

TO be straight : i used to ride a XT in the 70/80 then a tenere ...

I came back to trails on a DRZ 400

then i bought a himmie , very confident in it

My second bike is more trails oriented : a CRF 450 L

The Himmie is the modern XT

The CRF is the new DZ/XR

have nice rides

If it had the power of the old XT I would agree.

well, with the 477 engine and the Hitchcock cam it may get there ...

it would have been too boring for RE to make a 410cc engine with 30 HP right out of the box I think  👿

Hello, did you modify anything on your bike?

If you find syntactical or grammatical or spelling errors you may keep and pet them. If it is technically incorrect what I sayd, please tell me.

as long as it does not break ... the design is excellent, the execution is dangerous. thats why my bikes have reinforced frames.
