What did you guy's think of the 350? Would you take it on a multi-day camp & ride or more suited for just single track blasting?

The 350 is awesome, but really shines in the higher revs. It feels lighter than my 200 xc-w and steers waaay better. Super fun.

Regarding your question: were I in the market for an almost $10k motorcycle I would need to ride the 500 before I plunked down my hard earned credit. I think the 350 would do just about anything you asked of it, but loaded up for a dual-sport ride I think I personally would want more grunt. This coming from an XRR owner too so bear that in mind.

I guess it just depends on your personal stable too. Kurt has a 690 so it doesn't make a whole lot of sense for him to have a 500 as well. He wanted a s/t ripper, not necessarily a do-it-all machine...

Thanks Brad

The 350 does sound great, but I think I will hang on to my 525 a while longer.
