New to Forum and looking for a XX

Wazzup people. I'm in Southeast PA and currently am rolling on a Renegade 800Xxc. I wanted to change things up a little and always wanted a XX.

So I was thinking of looking at a couple this weekend and thought I'd ask if there is anything I should be looking for i.e. signs of wear, signs of high hours besides the usual scuffs around the A-arms and where the boots rub...

Glad I found this place and looking forward to a new for me Honda.

Cheers

Well....that didn't take you too long! Welcome to the site!
Now you know who I am on here and off of here and on all the other sights!

Do you remember yet?
I sold my Wolverine last summer after I bought a 700xx on Memorial Day weekend last year. I spent the spring/summer replacing plastics and parts and giving it TLC and I wouldn't dream of going back to a SRA.

Good luck!

What's up Dan. I saw your alias just a minute ago and knew who it was right away. Forgot you had a XX.

I actually got a 2011 Renegade 500 with 200 miles on it that I picked up cheap for a spare (for the wife or friends). Well I decided that was a boring way to go, so I'm selling it on Saturday (and making $500). I can't wait to pick up a XX.

I can't believe your considering a Polaris Outlaw over a Honda 700xx

If I buy a 525, can I come on a group ride?

Sure but you won't be able to keep up!




Seriously though, there isn't a whole lot of 700xx riders it seems in southeastern pa or eastern pa. Maybe they just don't post much info, not sure.

I'm not into racing along the windmills. Tight woods trails, I'd bet they are pretty similar and that's mostly rider.
