It was absolutely pissing it with rain yesterday, a storm warning was in full effect and the light was rubbish, but we were all super motivated to go and ride anyway, so off we went to XBOWL for some early evening fun in the puddles! The EXC was loving the rain a lot more than our Canon 5D, after a few years use, some of the buttons are starting to stick, but Zajcmaster and PSP still nailed a few sweet shots.
We received the new one off DE custom graphics kit we designed for the 300EXC from backyard designs and were stoked to get them onto the bike. Backyard designs did a great job with the printing. The sticker quality is top notch too and they were super easy to put on, with some nice template shapes. We highly recommend them if you are after some custom stickers for your bike. They can either print some stickers you design yourself in illustrator, or they can do them and work with you to get them to your liking with the sponsors that you want.

The 300EXC was an absolute joy to ride, the new XPlor fork and shock are really superb. We stayed on the MX track this time because of how wet it was and the bike was handling the speed with the same composure it handles the rough stuff. I still don’t feel as comfortable jumping it as I did the 350 SX-F, but then that’s not what it was designed for exactly. In the rough chop the bike handles better than my old 350, and turns on a dime. Loving it so far, but personally, I have a long way to go still to get ready for Romaniacs! Need to start riding some more technical trails and obstacles really.
