VX300 in the Rockies

Tuesday, March the 5th I will be the new owner of a 2017 Black/Silver. It is a 'left-over' that I got for a good price. Been wanting one of these little bikes for a couple years now.

Looking forward to learning a lot from the collective here.

John

Interested to hear how it handles the mountains and elevation.

Hey Big John. Welcome to the X300 Saw you over on ADV Riders. I am up here in South East Aurora, We should get together some time for brunch in Monument or Castle Rock. Wondering if you are the person I met a while back on 105. I was riding a NC700X on that day. I also run a 2017 X300 and a new 2019 Versys 1000LTSE. .

Hi Big John from Victoria BC. I'm a daily commuter on my Vx300 so starting to put on some miles on the odometer - though most of my rides to date are 1/2 hr or less. Enjoy your new bike!

this is where she is now.....

Power Point, Heated Grips, 2" Rox Risers, ATV High Bend Fat Bar, Crash Guards, Happy Trail Luggage Racks, Center Stand, Pelican Clone Boxes, Hand Guards, Givi Tall Screen and Wolfman Enduro Tank bag.

Shinko 804/805's are soon to go on and the rear is a 140.

I am also ordering the Seat Concepts Tall Seat with gripper cover.

Haven't found them yet, but lowering pegs will be ordered.... as I am 6'4".


The wife loves the bike, but she rarely rides. I am turning it into my 'Light Adv' bike.
