Hola...

Bought a 700xx on Friday, went for the 1st ride on Saturday, & stumbled across this site today, so hello!

Saturday's morning ride was a sopping wet mudbog of a day...most of which I would have not gotten through on my LTZ-400 (no rear ground clearance on the swinger)...the 700xx kept up with my friends' utes so instead of going around the slop I blew right threw it...very impressed with the ground clearance of the IRS & the overall power of the quad.

It will take some getting used to, as I can't just slide it around corners right now, but we'll get there.

Here is the view that my riding buddies saw all day Saturday:

So clean! No worries, I was the same way when I first rode it. I couldn't really power slide like on my 400ex. Now I can no problem, after a short time you'll be fully adjusted. This atv really kicks ass!

They ought to change their 20 hour service requirements to change oil, check and adjust valves, replace plastics.

I have never seen plastic that scratches and discolors so easily. There are spots right below my seat that have an almost white appearance to them. I love the XX, but Honda really dropped the ball when it comes to the design and quality of the plastic on their newer machines. We also have a dark blue 420 rancher and it has the same design where plastic comes down around your feet and it also looks terrible after just a few rides. If you just look at either of our Hondas wrong, they scratch. Seems like the plastic is just way too soft.
