I'm not trying to start any $hi% or anything.

This is nice and all; but.. Wouldn't it be nice if rode a Honda. It just pisses me off to watch him..



Unfortunately for myself, i dont get to do any desert/dune riding. All my riding is similar the GNCC riding.

I wonder how much his race times would improve if he rode 700xx?

It would take him some time to adjust to the XX. I was watching the way he was leaning and kicking the ass end out around turns, it wouldn't be as easy on the XX at first. It would be awesome though, once he adjusted to the XX he was absolutely destroy all even more than now. He wouldn't have to deal with the SRA rear bouncing all over like in this vid.

I love the XX (obviously) and it has it's place, but the 450 sport quads are faster in the woods, period (hence why they use them). I hate to admit it but his lap times would only fall if he were on an XX. If they were faster, they'd be using them.

I agree. The xx has its pros and cons. I love the bike and the way it rides but I cant see him improving his time with the Honda.

I disagree. The only reason these guys aren't using machines like the 700 because in gncc quad races you cant have over 450cc displacement Terrain like the woody, hilly, bumpy, log crossings, hill climbs, creek crossings, and much more are the 700's bread and butter! IRS is huge for all of that. If you were to give Bill Ballance a 700xx, and gave him like a month with it on his land. He would absolutely obliterate the competitors in GNCC races (assuming the competitors were still on the 450's).

For me this was true at first, however after i installed some Razrs, it became no problem at all to do zero radius donuts.

Its my belief that with the increased ground clearance, and the increased amount of time the driving tires would be in contact with the ground that the IRS provides; and not to mention an extra 237cc's, the 700xx would smash all the 450's in the GNCC style races.

The only time a 450 sport quad trumps the 700 is on a MX track.

Well since bill balance got hurt last week, he will have some time to change his ways and get a 700xx. I hope he gets well soon, i heard that he cracked some vertibrae in his neck and back. If i had a factory sponsor that was going to pay for everything, I could ride something other than a Honda (it would be hard though)!

Why does it piss you off? He rides what he can win on and what his sponsor tells him to ride......of course if he was losing, I'm pretty sure he would find a new sponsor, which is why he rides what he does.

ive never seen a 525irs ( proven many times to be faster than most 450's) in the race so maby its just that most of the top riders are so use to sra that irs isnt a option. but when ever i ride with my ferinds that have 450's they can't keep up in the woods and one of them is pissed that he got a yfz it only has 100 hours on it and it needs new rear ball bearings and a top end. and he love how the xx handles.
