Hello from Oregon

Hi all, I am new to the TRX700XX world and hoping to learn a lot from you all. My first time riding a TRX700XX was yesterday. I originally was looking for a newer model TRX450R, but stumbled onto a Craigslist ad of someone selling a 2008 TRX700XX. My interest in this machine was sparked so I read a bunch of reviews and most of them were pretty good. I decided to take a chance on it. I drove 200+ miles yesterday and purchased the 08 700 for $3200. I am hoping to take it out for a proper woods ride soon.

Having experience with TRX450's, my only concern with the 700 is how high I sit compared. I assume this is something you get used to, or maybe folks have some tricks to lowering the 700? Either which way, so far I am really liking what I see and hope this bike will be one I enjoy for years to come!

Pete,
Welcome to the forum. You will like you 700XX, I'm sure. My recommendation is not to make any changes until you put some miles one it. Everyone has different riding styles and riding areas so what is good for one person may not be ok for the next guy/gal. Best of luck and happy riding.
