Default Picked up my XC yesterday.

Back from Afghanistan on monday night, went to Stafford Springs CT (Shark Cycle) yesterday to pick up my '11 XC. It was off/on raining/showers but it didn't deter me. I had been working with the dealer since the end of June and my new bike was coming home yesterday.

Here is a picture from this morning, still covered with dew but she still looks awesome. Rides every bit as comfortable as I remember from April when I rented a 2010. I put 165 miles on her yesterday and will put another 250+ today. Have first service scheduled for tomorrow and will have about 475 miles on her when I get back to the dealer.
