Re: When is the XX going to get here??
I picked her up last night. Got the black and silver combo. I forgot how bad ass these things looked in person. I can't remeber a machine that looks that much "different" in person that in pictures, but this thing really does. I showed it to a couple of friends and they were just amazed with its' workmanship. I took her out to my buddies house, he has a small field behind his house, so I at least got to feel it out a little. It definitely sounds corked up when it's at idle speed, but when you get on the gas, you can her the ponies rumbling inside...AWESOME!! First gear is not tall at all as some had said, it feels just right, as did second. The front end will come up whenever you want it to. It has plenty of power, it doesn't feel mellow at all to me like QUAD had said. I was able to get it into third gear, but couldn't stretch it out at all, so I can't tell you how she pulls through the power curve yet. The XX is very, very comfortable, your knees tuck in against the front of the seat, it feels real nice. I took some corners pretty fast, you defintely can't ride it like a machine with a solid axle, but I wasn't expecting it too. I took a wide sweeping corner in third gear and hammered the throttle...got it to powerslide real nice, but it's a different sensation that what I'm used to. The ass end is constantly clawing at the dirt to get traction and you stay planted on the ground...it feels really cool.
Bottom line....so far from what i have seen, I am VERY pleased with it. I'll be giving her the full test this weekend out on the mountain trails, so I'll have a much more detailed review after that. I think it is going to be a great quad, especially on the trail. I'll take some pics tomorrow before I take her out, cuz' she'll never look that good again. The plastic has the metallic in it, so when the sun hits it it looks very cool. I'm sure that will be gone by Sunday!
