Got Me An XT600 At Last!
Well finally I can start to get involved, got me a xt600e, a 1997 3tb after much thought because i want to get started on the whole greenlane thing and maybe moving up to a couple of trips abroad.
Any pointers on where to start and have i chosen the right bike?
Bought it to slow myself down really and just get involved!

Congratulations Nicky !!! :thumbup1: and welocome to the HUBB

You can probably start by taking a look at the Get Ready forum. Don't worry too much about the bike......the xt is as good as any.
Hope you get lots of fun out of it :funmeteryes:

Hi, take care.
Hi, good choice. Just be careful not to use a banned track and have the bike impounded, which can happen. The UK is definitely not pro off road bike use. Lindsay.

Yeh thanks for the info, last time i was this excited about getting a bike was back in 1978 in the moped days!

Hi Nicky.

Like you I've jumped into the XT gene pool with a '99 600E.
Only had it a few days, but am pretty certain that it's going to be a laugh.

Be prepared for the odd tumble off road, junked the dual purpose tyres and bought a set of mitas knobblies, much more confidence inspiring on muddy rutted tracks!
