Pics from my first ride

Here's some pics of my new XCountry. Got it on Saturday morning, and immediately took it to the country! I have to say, SO much better than my XT660 on the rough stuff! The handling is superb, mostly due to the less weight and lower centre of gravity, and of course the Conti TKC's fitted!

I removed the mirrors and tail section just in case I went down, which luckily never happened! I have to say my friend on his much lighter XR 250 went down once. I had him ride in front so that I could plan my route better! ;) I'm also getting a custom alluminium bashplate later this week, will post some pics later.

Anyway, I really love this bike! A blast on the road (even with the knobblies) and real fun on the sandy/rocky/muddy stuff. And the wife loves it too!

PS. How do you embed multiple images in the post, without attaching?
