New to the XX

Hey ya'll. I just acquired my new to me 2008 700XX during a trade for my 2005 GSXR 750. Today was the first time I've ever ridden one but it felt like I've been riding it forever, probably because I've been trying to ride my Honda Rincon like it was one, lol. I had already grown accustomed to manuevering an IRS atv, but comparing these two machines ends there. The XX has way more useable power, but it is fairly easy to control. The guy I got it from may or may not have been a member here, but he put a lot of money into it and he did a great job with it. It is in excellent condition for an 08, and if I didn't know any better I would have guessed it was a 2010 model. So far after one ride, I am very impressed with the machine. For being quite a bit heavier than 450's, the motor makes up for it with some to spare. I went for a ride with my dad, who rides a 1985 Yamaha XT600 dual sport that he stripped down for trail use, and the 700 kept up just fine with his bike. On a rolling start I could out accelerate him, but he would catch up to me in a few seconds and slowly pull away. The way his bike is set up, it will probably run just over 85mph. I have not checked the speed on his bike or the 700, but I would assume I was running between 75-80mph, but I could be wrong. I can't wait to get some more ridding time on it, and test it out at a few rides this year while getting some good hillclimbing and trail riding footage on the gopro. I have a few vids of riding my Rincon on my youtube page if you's guy's are interested. Links at the bottom of my signature. hoipefully I can contribute to the site, at least a little.

The previous owner installed the following mods;
Curtis Sparks full exhaust
Power Commander V
Uni-filter & modded air box lid
Moose chassis, front and rear A-arm skid plates
Maxxis 23" front and 22" RAZR II tires on ITP aluminum wheels
Elka Stage 1 shocks
IMS 5 gallon gas tank
Powermadd Handguards
Blocked off parking brake
13 tooth front sprocket.
All I may buy for now is a good front bumper, and some shock covers to keep the Elkas nice and perrdy.

JBGILL06,
Welcome to the forum. All those videos are outstanding. Snow riding is great.
It sure look like you and your riding buddies know those trails with and without the snow.
Thanks,
Sid

Thank you Sid. The trails are pretty nice, and we have a name for every trail area. they are scattered around the outside of our town. We use the train tracks and back roads to get to each one. But, not many people have been riding lately, so all of the trails are over grown with prickers! I'm going to have to Load my Rincon up with some blades and go choppin.

Nice 700xx. I also have a motorcycle that gets no love anymore because of the 700xx.

I was checking out your youtube page and noticed you went to Fishers 3rd annual atv reunion, was it a good time or what? I have plans to attend this year and was curious what I was getting into.

I had fun there. There isn't anything really challenging there, like hill climbs are tracks. It was mostly open trails with a few mud pits and some rocky trail sections. But they had a lot of vendors, bucky covington played a show last year, they had an obstical course you could enter and a mud bog. I will be bring the XX and the Rincon next year so hopefully it will be more fun.

Sounds like a good time. I'm planning on going all 3 days along with a few friends, my wife and daughter.

Do you know if they allow generators while camping? Your not going this year?

I meant for this year, I should have said next time. There were quite a few camp sites with generators, so I would assume your allowed. Also, last year they had a portable shower company there and charged $5 a shower. I was skeptical about them, but they were clean. Reminded me of college dorm showers. So if you plan on getting dirty, then bring your towel and shower kit with you just incase they have them again this year. And it was pretty quiet, they enforce the no riding after like 11 oclock, so you can actually get a good nights sleep.

Actually, I didn't go into the mines, I think my quads are too loud for them. I went this year, and last year. Although I had fun, once was probably enough. I doubt I will be going back anytime soon. If you're coming from New Jersey, I wouldn't waste the trip because there are better areas to ride at if you want to travel that far.
