This bike is amazing. The motor, the ergos, the whole thing works for me at 6-2, 220.
with five or so DS's in my past, it easily trumps them. With ABS and the handling, this thing is a great sport bike. I tested or otherwise investigated everything on the market, and the 800XC still comes out on top. No remorse here, just the pure joy of kicking that great motor down the road!
