Pulled the trigger!!!!

Yup, just like it reads, I did it! Still excited as all hell and ready to rip apart earth. First off, thanks to inkman101 for giving me such a great deal on such a great machine. Second thanks, to club700xx for allowing a guest to look at the for sale thread and find this spectacular machine. ok that out of the way let's start with I live in north jersey and have been on a 96 cr 250 until it blew up and life got busy. Once it calmed down I had a friend sell me a rancher with a plow to toy around with in my free time, I loved it. Some friends took a trip in the woods so I joined on the 350es and ya I was shocked at what quads can do. I immediately started looking for a new beast ideal for my needs. I ride trails, no track. I like climbing hills and just ripping around for hours. Don't need 80mph but not gonna complain if I could do it. Need good suspension and maneuverability for the woods. Research brought me to the 700xx, way more money then I wanted to ever spend but I believe in the buy right buy once mentality, and this thing fit. Based on the fact that it is a Honda and has independent suspension I felt that a 700 was just where I wanted to be. Found it, saved up, and bought it. Now I am ready to ride!!!!

I have one million questions but I will do my best to read up before I ask them. However I do like to hear input from others so you might get a few from me. Thanks everybody, I am beyond excited to be here!

Exactly how I felt when I first punched it on mine. Just wait until your friends are crying about the bumps and your laughing "lets do it again!" You may get with Dagirl she I think is Jersey too.

Thanks a lot! I rode today for about three hours and man did I get beat up. The machine literally rode me. So much power and so much comfort, I can't wait to go again! I need nerfs to keep my feet on, bumpers that can take down small trees and stop big ones, and a rear rack to carry my stuff. I know the list will keep growing but those are my immediate needs, again first real quad so I am a ball of fire! I did put the skids on before the ride and almost lost one about an hour in and on my after ride clean I took off those mud scrapers or scratcher things for rippin up my rim, replaced the bolts tho hope that's correct. So much to do with this thing!

M Quick- yes I did, he really hooked me up! Only thing I can think off that I will not use for a now is the exhaust and fuel programmer. And thanks for the greeting as well!

Tat,

North jersey. Legally, not gonna lie No! I have some friends that have some land so that's all I got. I used to snowmobile up by you as a kid. How is the 700xx welcomed on trials up there?
