I have a few more days and locations of testing on the 350 XC-F now. Here are some of my observations as I rack up the miles on our test bike. I have really been trying to recognize the difference between the impressions that are solely mine and what things are indicative of the bike itself. I guess I am also holding this bike to a high standard because it is going to have to prove itself by carving out a new class in the off road market. To be successful it is going to have to be very good and appeal to a wide range of riders.
