New guy

Not an XX owner yet, but selling my 07 YFZ450r SE and TTR 125 to buy an XX for myself and a Rincon for the wife.

Keep hearing great things about the XX, and looking to get off the track and start doing more on the trails.

Great site guys!!

Welcome to the site. I can tell you right now, coming from the yfz to the xx you will probably hate the turning. But that is fixable.

Yea, i kinda of figured that much. My suspension is set up for the track and has a steering stabilizer. I don't even like the feel of a stock 450's turning!!

I live out on the Bartlett/Elgin border. I've gone to Rocky Glen a few times, but usually ride around the house. I live on 3 acres with a small track going around the yard.

Ok you are pretty close then. We do black river falls, silverlake, the badlands, and the cliffs quite a bit. A good set of tires and the l8ton sway bar make a world of difference in the handling.
