Beautiful bike!  Where in NH are you from?  I'm around the Burlington, VT area.  Anyhow, enjoy!

Where in the Sierras are you riding?  Just looking to expand my riding area.  I'm based out of the north Bay area so if you are ever looking for a riding buddy, let me know.  Thanks man.

hey @VTMTcowboy this is in the Kern Plateau, we camp at Troy Meadow which is basically still So Cal. We usually ride desert in the winter and try to get up here in the summer.  Would love to be able to see other areas. Do you ever head east from your area to the Sierra?

Just traded in my 300rr for a 2017 xt. A lot lighter, couldn't be happier with my choice. Had the bpsk9 kit put in from the get go, bike feels balanced, no issues with the suspension so far. Since taking the photos ive removed the oil injection, not a fan. What an awesome piece of kit, finally found the 'one'! Haha :D

Never really have explored to far.  I see a lot of great riding, east in the Sierras, but always hesitant to go alone.  Its a long shot but if you ever are doing a day ride, I would definitely wake up early and meet yeah for a ride!

Beta noob here. Decided it was time to get off my trusty XR400. Glad I did. Loving the new XTrainer!

Nice, first I've seen that skid plate/exhaust combo guard on a xtrainer. I'm interested in that guard as I'm not really liking the carbon skid plate I've got now. The carbon is quiet but has gotten chewed up pretty quick on our rocks. Little belt and suspends there with the carbon pipe guard too, eh? :)

Looks like some sweet riding!  A road legal Xtrainer looks pretty cool.  How does it do on road?

It's so handy to have the plate but it's not meant to go 60 down the highway that's for sure.  Bottom end jetting is horrible at my elevation. ..right where you want to cruise,  1/8 throttle.  Going to get a few break in miles on it before I tackle that. 

I will also need to re spring for my weight.  With the rear end sagging the front end rakes out and steering gets a little wobbly at higher speeds.  

Great bike tho, just one step at a time.

Looks like it would be a blast for quick trips around town or just connecting trails!  What part of Washington are you riding in?  Looks solid.

I've had my xtrainer over 70mph on gps and it still had some stick. Of course, I wouldn't cruise on it and I've got a 14t sprocket sitting on the bench to make hanging out at 60mph more comfortable. I ride the bike to town for lunch sometimes just for the novelty of it. ;)
