Got very interested in the XC the first time I sat on one in a local dealership in 2013. Absolutely fell in love the first time I rode one in 2014. Financially, it wasn't possible to get one until now. I signed the paperwork to pick up a good friend's 2011 last night and pick it up tomorrow. Coincidentally, it's first one I ever rode and the same one that I fell in love w/ in 2014. Needless to say, I'm stoked and I can't wait for riding weather to get here!
