My apologies for the long silence, along with the usual excuses of my professional life getting in the way of being a full time hobo. Anyhow, all has not been lost yet, as I’ve made the decision to further lighten the 500 EXC, along with my standard luggage setup. The designs have already been made and the parts have already started rolling in. Also, the gear list has been slimmed down to around 7 kg and the new luggage system is currently being designed. So there should be an illustrated update somewhere down the road sooner or later. In the mean time, here are some color designs I’ve been tinkering with. So which one do you like?
