I live on 40 acres, so I rode it a bit today, but there's not really enough room to get it out of 4th gear. I'm hoping to bring it down the road to a place called Croom in Brooksville, FL. I live about 10 miles away from it. I just have to find the time!

I actually got the last one the dealership had in stock. I had to finance it in order to get it before they sold it. I was going to pay cash next week, but the last black one had to be mine. I like the red and black, but I think this is a little more evil and the bike is wicked, so this color fits it better.

This is my second ATV. My first was the Polaris Phoenix 200cc. I bought that one used and cheap just to see if I would like to get into the sport. I really enjoyed it, but knew I would need a much bigger machine with more power because of my size. So I bought the new Honda and it is exactly what I wanted. Big and powerful. I will honestly say I miss whipping the 200cc around because it slides so well, but I can't get the 700 to do that yet...more practice might be able to solve that issue. I kept the 200 for my fiance and she enjoys riding it. She only weighs 125 pounds, so it is enough for her. Now I am just getting used to riding the fully manual 5 speed. I'm not too bad on it, but sometimes it stalls taking off. Practice will fix this too. Overall I am more than pleased with the purchase and will keep this ride for years to come.

I used to have a 200cc china wheeler I bought for my girl when I had my dirtbikes. I'll tell you I had more fun on that thing than any of my other quads. There's nothing better than pushing a machine to it's limits all the time. You just can't do that and not get hurt on the xx.

Congrats Craigy. Just follow the break in procedure and stuff for the first 2 tanks, and you will have a bulletproof machine.

The break in has been pretty light, but I can't seem to stop myself from giving it a little gas here and there... I haven't really gone through any high rpms because I'm still learning the clutch and shifting. I learned to drive a car on a manual transmission, so I know when to shift without over revving the engine. I have rode it about 2 1/2 hours total so far. I guess I'm supposed to change the oil around 20 hours for the initial break-in. The owner's manual doesn't give a lot of information on it, other than avoiding full throttle starts, rapid acceleration, and constant rpms for the first 15 miles. I've pretty much followed these guidelines. I think I should have close to 15 miles on it.

I'm tempted droby! I would like the engine to wear properly though...so maybe another hour or two of riding before I scare the crap out of myself.
