I have video, and 129slayer got some pretty good pics, so I'll post those later. It did way better than expected, and pretty much convinced me that I may as well keep the bike and do some serious suspension upgrades rather than getting something else.

The bigger XTs were (and still are) everything that the 350 wasn't. they have better brakes, better suspension, they don't have shim-in-bucket valve adjusters, and the frames are a bit stronger. I'm working on updating the 350 to those better specs, since the other real option would be to sell it and buy something already better. Hard to find something else street legal, decent on the highway, and with a massive carrying capacity and a 6-speed though. And the xt is only around 270 lbs with an empty tank, which is pretty decent.

I'm always down for a ride, and I know the other guys are too.... :)
