new guy from bowling green, mo. Anyone close. I had all intentions of coming home with a 2011 700 raptor(yamaha fan hince the traitor) but decided to look over all makes. % am here now, with grey/black model.
Big congrats I had a 660 raptor liked it alot just didn't like dragging back end around in all the trails I ride and sold it role a scrambler 500 several years and decided to upgrade looked at raptor 700 but remembered my issue with it so I got a TRX700XX AND I LOVE IT I have no problems with anything best for how and where I ride
I used to ride there all the time, but haven't been there since 04. If you like tight, technical trails then you'll like it. They have areas to go fast and have a track. But for the most part it's slow and big hills.
I'm from just south of St. Louis and I usually ride St. Joe state park. Until you get a few mods done to your TRX700XX I would stick to some wide open riding. My quad was way too pushy till I put some 23" Razr2's on the front and regular Razrs on the rear. Now I wouldn't mind some tight stuff to ride. PLus you have trails and sand flats and sand trails at St. Joe.
