I just purchased my trx700xx today and i am picking it up on Monday!!! This is also my first quad i have owned and i have never really ridden one. I have been looking to buy a quad for the last month or so. I had been debating on the trx and raptor 700s. I started off looking at the trx but then i started thinking that the cvs would cause problems, but in the end i put that fear behind me and purchased the honda. any ways i already have a honda and have always had hondas. =) i hope to enjoy many years of happiness from this quad. so any tips would be helpful.
