Mid-Life Crisis?

I just bought one of these fine machines and I bought it before I had a chance to even ride one. I used to race dirt bikes in the desert for a few years and decided to chill out a bit as I am getting a little older and my career can't really handle a serious injury. Well, when I swung my leg over the 700 and started cruising around my parent's property, I though "wow this thing has a little pep". It turns out, I had A LOT of throttle left! So I went ahead and opened it up and HOOBOY this thing flat gets on it! I don't know if the potential for injury is any less, but I will say the potential for fun is most definitely there. Good bye dirt bike!

Also, just like any honda product, this thing's fit and finish is incredible! Hope to see some of you guys/girls around.

Bob

I also had never rode one (700xx) until I bought mine! From what I read in the magazines I expected to be only slightly more powerful than maybe a 400ex or something, boy was I wrong!!

The magazines really seem to beat this thing up in the reviews. I am glad you like it. This is my second quad (I owned a YFZ450 for 6 months), and I am nothing but happy with it!

I got mine without even reading about it. I saw it in the show room on a black friday sale and said I want that. its one impulsive buy that I have never regretted.

I did some research and decided the 700xx was the quad for me after I found this site and read and read and read, I got mine from a member here, thanks AV8R. I rode alot in the early 90's on two suzuki 250r's a quadzilla that got stolen and a new Banshee i bought with the money I got from the shmuck when he got caught doing smokey burnouts on public streets with it. The zilla was my favorite by far. I bought the 700xx without even hearing it run because i could see it was a beauty, what a machine. reminds me alot of the zilla, big and fast and will climb any hill. Cant wait to get my big 3.

I didn't know about it until my saleman pointed it out and gave me a great deal on it. A week later I was riding. I love it.
