Bringing this bad boy home tomorrow!  

Thought I might have spending the night in the woods for about an hour today.  Finally got it out and roasted up some red hots trail side.  Epic weekend.  Some great climbs, some bad stucks, lots of l

Suspension likes to bottom out on moguls and it’s a massive turd after 80 mph. Really inconsistent engine RPM. Not a piece of junk but certainly nowhere near the hype.  Just another nice trail sled tbh, but nothing more.

I seen some Guy last weekend he was bragging about his doing 118mph across the lake, even showed me the gauge... But then he said he's buddies was a bit slower. Maybe they got some inconsistencies between these engines or tunes. 🤷‍♂️

118 would be around 108. 

lots of guys complaining about poor performance. Some guys saying 850’s are faster top end.  Some guys are claiming they are really fast, but they may be coming off a 600. I don’t know. 
 

It is quick 0-60 then wides then wave to 80. After that you might want to be letting off soon if you’re racing a t cat

Disappointing.  I'm glad I didn't buy anything new this year. I heard the big pimping kashima coated shocks on the Lynxs aren't all that....and I'm not on board with all this smart shock bullshit either.  Reminds me of my electric Ohlins Apex.....junk.

Yeah 108 real mph.  Not bad but not world breaking.  My 14 Freeride clocked about 108.  Maybe 100 real mph.  Thats an off trailer and this is supposed to be a mack daddy?  wtf

Put 120 miles on today from my driveway. My fuel light was flashing for the last 20 miles but I made it to the house. I couldn’t fit 5 gallons in her sled even with burping the tank. No premium here for mine but I’m sure I’ll need 10.

Overcast day with wind and scattered flurries. Packed our own lunch.

Riding with Jammin, Drew and Steve this weekend on the North Shore. Cool area, good snow. First time I have been able to ride this season, feels awesome to get out.

Is that Barnes Corners? 

 

I'm going to go north on Tuesday but I'm not sure where yet. My buddy said OF was pretty thin today.

Made it to South FreeDakota and back.  200 miles in about 4.5 hours of ride time.  

Damn near ran'er out of gas.  Should have taken the Prius of a TNT...

That's pretty likely. I want to head north for an extended trip beginning Teusday. I'll DM you tomorrow or Monday.

Body hurts. Three days straight, deep in the woods. Been living on booze and ibuprofen since Thursday night. I might be getting too old for this kind of riding but I don’t want to give it up, that’s for sure.
