First Ride - Northern KY

Overall my first ride and impressions where very good. I've been on mostly 4x4's (Wolverines) for years and this animal is completely different and very enjoyable. I installed and hour meter and Honda nerf bars before my first ride and I logged 3.2 hours of engine running time.

Engine Performance:
A bit intimidating at first because 1st gear sucks (13t on order) and I stalled it more than I care to admit. By the end of the ride I was starting to get to know my new steel horse and the power became more manageable.

Handling:
Much much better than my Wolverine. It does push in the turns a bit, but the hillside stability I thought was great. I do think the handle bars just don't feel right and I'm reading about Flex Bars and risers.

Body Reaction:
I'm in my mid-40's and feeling a little sore today mostly because I think I was a little tense on the new steel horse. I'm hoping new handlebars help my shoulders after long rides?

Conculsion:
Iíve been using my quads in the past for double duty (work and play) and now Iím lucky enough because of the great pricing on the 700xx to be able to have just a play quad and this one was the right choice for me. A terrific steel horse named Lucy.

I'm glad your first ride was a lot of fun. The 13 t makes a huge difference and for the stalling I did it too but its better than wearing out the clutch by babying it all the way through.

Welcome aboard! A 13tooth sprocket is money well spent.

The stock sprocket is a 14T. Taking it down one really helps with the low end crawl.

Very interested. Where abouts in the Lake Cumberland area? I visit fishing creek boating a couple times a year.

Also enjoy Black Mountain.

Thanks!
