New 700xx owner

I recently bought a 2008 700xx. I haven't rode it more than an hour and can say I'm extremely happy with my decision. This sites positive reviews and belief in this quad really helped me make my decision between the raptor and the xx. The quad itself is stock other than front grab bar and some white plastics the previous owner purchased.

Welcome to the club

You should be happy with your choice over the raptor, that is if you ride trails. Last weekend I went riding with a 350 warrior, 570 Sportsman, and a 700r. I cant remember how many times the 700r was stuck, once the 570 got stuck in same hole, trying to follow me. The warrior also was pulled a few times, but not as many as the raptor. I never did get stuck, and even followed the 4x4 through some deep stuff. The ground clearance and torque on this quad, make it a real pleasure to ride.

I went from a string of raptors to the xx... missed the ability to throw it round corners like the raptor, got an anti sway bar which helped immensely.. but the ability to go places the raptor always got stuck was brilliant.. Much more comfy quad, and goes so many miles more than any other quad without the need for repairs/adjustments!!
Tried a raptor a while back and hated it !!
The xx is the next best thing to a 4x4 for getting over very rough ground.

I agree. The ride quality is amazing. I rode through some chip plowed fields and it wasn't even bothered by it. If I did that on my 400, I would of had to slow to a crawl to not get flung off
