I'm pretty much new all the way around. Been hangin around for a short time & figured I'd join in as I just picked up my new toy on saturday 4-21-07. I've rode banshees for about 12 years now & even though I won't be giving up my banshee for some time this bike will serve as my all around bike as the banshee is primarily sand only. Is it just me or do these bikes have a ton of torque. I went for a ride today (first one) & this bike seems to have so much more torque than the bike it's replacing (2001 Raptor for sale by the way). Anyways very impressed so far. Smooth torquey power...I like.
