We are a Yamaha Family. This is my Wifes toy. 1986 Yamaha Big Wheel 200.



Here is my Yamaha Grizzly in Sasquatch Country at Saunders.


My Youngest has rode a new Bike every year in the YZF250 ,no pics of the 2011 YZF 450 he now rides.


I like to keep my tires contacting the ground ,Junior well,have as a different idea of having fun.


My oldest sold his Sport Quad and used the money to buy an Old 1983 Yammaha 650 that we chopped down and made a Bobber. I did the mods and he did his own airbrushing. Maybe got $ 2000 into it.



The youngest is almost a full fledged Journeyman Mechanic at 20yrs old,one more year yet. Anyway he keeps them all running good.

2005 Honda foreman 500. Rolled the damn thing twice ( In the same day) and damn thing still going.( No damage in roll over).  Most reliable quad out there. 

But I must admit the Polaris has a ton of power.  My brother in law has a 800 and the thing is a beast.  Also check out youtube.  They have tug a wars with quads and Polaris seems to rule.

Can`t wait until Honda comes out with a large quad than a 680 though.

Cheers

09 Honda 500 Rubicon. I think once you experience power steering you'll never go back to manual.

Funny you say that Tuc. I thought the power steering was a bit of a marketing tool and honestly did not really want the option. I needed a quad right away and the only one available had power steering. I took it, and I agree with you completely: it is the only way to go.

Lots of great machines out there... as consumers, we are pretty fortunate to have choices. Cheers, Mike
