new rider in pa

Hello, been lurking for a few weeks and finally had time to join. I just bought my 700 on Jan 2 and haven't had much suitable weather to enjoy it yet . I did get out with a buddy on a 450R last week for a few hours and had a blast.
It is my first quad in ten years or so, I had a couple blasters and a two stroke scrambler years ago. I narrowed my choices down to a XX or a renegade and got a deal that I couldn't pass up at the dealer less than a mile from my house so here I am. I have been riding street bikes for the past few years but with my new job I work weekends and wouldn't have been able to ride much so I switched toys for a while. Ideally I'd like to keep the quad and pick up a track bike if/when I'm able.

For now I think that a sonic sway bar will probably be first on my wishlist. It has plenty of power and I'm not big on loud bikes anyway, too easy to piss of landowners that way. So until I get bored with the amount of power she'll stay stock

Congrats on the purchase. You mentioned exhaust so I figure it crossed your mind. FWIW I originally purchased a FMF Q4 silencer and it unleashed a few seat of the pants hp and was not much louder than stock

No, not yet anyway. It is very close to my inlaws so I intend to make it there someday soon. Along with shamokin, and all of the other places to ride in that area. They are all about 2.5 hours from me though. I am within twenty minutes of the breezewood proving grounds though, so that may come first.

lol just replied to your intro thread. I traded my street bike so it's kind of hard to say, but they were asking $5999 for it straight out. Seems to be the going rate around here.
