My college roommate got in on the kickstarter project and has had one for several years. That's where we first saw one, when he came down for a brewday and got to try it. My son immediately decided he was saving for one and I told him I'd cover half. Took him two years, but he managed to save up enough for half of a Pint. So we went right to the local dealer the week after Christmas. As we were getting ready to finalize the purchase, I asked the owner if he may happen to have any used XR's. He had one with 300 miles that he knocked $500 off if I paid cash, so we came home with one of each. They are an absolute blast! I of course took a nosedive within an hour of getting it home and jacked the hell out of my hand and elbow.
Learned the hard way that pushing speed while going uphill is foolish.
That's the last time I went off of it though haha. Son just tried offroading on a stupid sized hill with his buds, broke his arm, so he's in a cast for another 4 weeks. I know, I know, ringing product endorsement eh?
I took mine to the lake this weekend and put damn near 30 miles on it. Yes, you can offroad with them, but we've got street tires on, so I don't know how far I'd push trails etc. My bud has a treaded tire that handles offroad much easier.
Back on topic, I am a bit concerned about my batch I brewed before we left. I pitched yeast and left it in the swamp cooler at 2:00 Friday afternoon. I checked on it when we got home today and have ZERO activity. I gave it a swirl to stir it up some and see if I can get any activity. I may have to reach out to NB if there's nothing going on tomorrow, maybe dead yeast.
