Well I just moved back to my hometown of Buffalo, NY. I was living in Nashville where the trails are very tight and dense. I favored my YFZ 90% of the time. All that has changed now, the trails are much wider with more whoops and wash-outs giant rocks and all the roots you can handle. Now my YFZ is moved to the back spot in the garage and the XX has finally won my heart over. I find myself riding much longer and hitting every obstacle in my path sometimes I will even go out of my way trying to break this beast. Many a 450 now struggle to keep up with me down the long fire roads riddled with wash-outs and large rocks. In short I am trying to say I can't believe I ever doubted this bike.
