I had a couple blasters as a teen, then a 400 two smoke scrambler. I rode street bikes for years but due to a job change I decided to go back to ATVs and ended up on the xx.

I rode a 400ex with yosh slip on, weisco 11:1, Hot cam st. 1, ishock 5500, and works quadstar rear. Great machine! Heres a cub scout show I did with some friends, I hit that jump for the first time 1 week prior. I did free style for 1 month before I decided it was too risky.:nuts:

A YZ250 got me back into woods riding, then I went to a Raptor 660. From there I stepped up to the XX!!

Started out on a Warrior 350, it was a good machine to learn on, but quickly wanted more after trying a buddy's Z400. So I got a Z400 and kept it 3.5 years. That was a fun quad, but it was getting tired and I didn't want to go into the motor. Then bought the Raptor 700 and thought it was the best thing around, until I discovered the 700XX. Gotta love hobbies:lol:!

I ride all kinds and still do. It gets tough some days choosing. Depends on the weather and where we're going.

Where should I start, I've been riding for a long time.....

1982 Kawasaki KLT200, 1984 Honda ATC200X, 1986 Honda ATC250R, 1993 Yamaha Blaster, 1999 Yamaha Banshee, 2003 Cannondale Cannibal, 2004 Kawasaki KFX700, 2007 Kawasaki Brute Force 650, 2007 Honda Rancher 420TE, and now I have added the 700XX to the list. The only one I still own other than the 700XX is the Rancher.

Chrisj, how does the XX size up to those other big cc quads you have?
Way better machine than the Kawi in every which way. As for the Renegade it's hard. The Gade is way quicker off the line. 700xx has it mid to top. The 700xx is a bit more fun with jumping and wheelies. The ride and handling is better on the Gade regardless of the difference in weight. My shocks are rezzies and are setup up perfect though. They're 2 different machines and hard to compare. If I was only able to have one quad, I'd pick the Gade. It's the best all around quad built. imo. The 700xx is the best sporty for my riding style. If that makes sense.lol The 2up 800r Limited is a cruiser and excellent for long trips.

Interesting, the Renegade is a good looking quad. It definitely looks bulky but I'm sure its comfortable to ride. I bet if I were older I would probably choose the Renegade.
Probably couldn't handle it being older. I'm 33 and weigh 160lbs. It's not as comfy as a Ute, just more comfy than the XX. It's just a brute power machine that gets addicting. The VTwin sound, is just nuts.

You're crazy with the Grizzly 700. We have 2 08's in the family and they're the two biggest POS bikes. Ergonomics are horrible.Stall all the time. 3 axles in one, 2 in the other. Won't start in the cold. Worst handling bike out there with the power steering.

Yeah, the Gade sounds freakin' awesome, especially with a pipe on it. Thing sounds like a V8.
I rode one for a bit, it was like riding a Clysdale to me. I was on a Raptor at the time, and that thing is a beast to hold onto. It seemed huge, but I had just jumped off of my Raptor and onto it. I'm about 210 lbs too, and not a fat 210 either, so when they tell you that the Renegade is not for beginners, they aren't kidding. That sucker almost had too much power for its' own good. But I think that I would really like one if I rode it for a whole weekend. I think that will probably be my next quad. I was considering one before the XX came to fruition. I wish Yamaha and Honda would build a quad like that.
