No, you're creating a default route to x.x.x.x.  This is not what we're
referring to.  We're saying that x.x.x.x has to be reachable before the
router will install your default route.  Since you don't have the router
connected to anything, x.x.x.x is not reachable and the static default route
will not show up in the routing table.

Hopefully, when you connect your router to the network it will learn a route
to 63.x.x.193 via RIP.  At that point, your static default will also enter
the routing table.
