Congrats on your purchase and welcome to the club. Do you have paddle tires for the sand already? Stock tires will work, but paddles are mo' better. Had my stock tires at Pismo and were OK, but I wish that I'd had paddles to really rip.
Where are you at in Cali? San Francisco here... (San Freakshow)
Yep sounds like a deal to me . Run down to Carnegie meet up, then even go over to Dumont Dunes, there is some tall sand there and keep going south. Maybe spray some milkweed with Roundup while at Glamis haha.
The trip was great. The 700xx performed great even though I didn't have paddle tires. I rode with two Raptors 660s. I was able to go every where they went. Both Raptors had paddle tires. The 700xx has plenty of power for the biggest of dunes. I loved the way it rides. I should have my paddle tires ready for my next trip there. It should perform even better.
Sorry, no pics of the trip, at least no pics of the ride.
