What's next???

So I just bought my xx a little over a month ago and I'm already worried about what machine I will buy when I'm done with the xx. Right now it's looking like a renegade 1000 xxc. But I've got the xx for five years minimum so a lot could change in that time. Maybe Honda will get back into the big bore sport quads again. Anyway just curious what everybody else is going to do when they are done with the xx.

For me, I don't think there will be a "next" because of my age and health. There may be an additional quad (to add next to my 700xx) in my future... considering a DS450x??

I'm hoping that getting the "next" quad isn't over before it started. Between health and the economy I've been out of riding for the past couple years. I had been saving for a 700XX. Since Honda has stopped making them after only 2 years I'm not sure that they will be on my list when the time comes that I can ride again.

Some of the other quads I've been considering:
Raptor 700
KFX 700 (discontinued, and heavy)
Outlaw IRS (also discontinued)
DS450
KFX450

The raptor is probably toward the top of my list at this point. It's a shame that Honda threw in the towel before giving the raptor a run for its money.

Even though the Renegade is powerful, I'm not a fan of heavy quads. So, the Renegade and other sport-utes are out for me.

For me the 700xx will last my racing career. I am 42 now and plan on racing the 700xx till I am in my 70's. The 700xx suits my riding style. What I did this year was beyond what was expected and when the wife "Jill" say's don't ever sell that bike , I know I found the one.

2008 TT-ReXX , 2003 400ex and 2014 CRF250r.

I hate to admit this but at my age I think there is a "Hoveround Scooter" in my future.
I don't like the idea because there isn't any after market upgrades for them.

A hoveround with the big three or a big bore kit would be sweet... 'Course the stock suspension sucks, so you may want to upgrade that first. Then upgrade the motor when you get used to the power and handling :-)
