Thread: What Do You Ride?

    Default What Do You Ride?

    What kind of ATV are you guys sporting?

    I am riding an 05 Brute Force 750 with tons of mods. My wife rides an 01 Rancher. Makes a great backup quad when the beast is down.

    The adrenaline rush I recieve everytime I mash that throttle is priceless.

    heres a pic

    Smile My ride

    Hi guys, here's a photo of my ride. Talk about positive traction! And you can get add-ons that will let you float over the snow in winter, travel through really swampy ground, and even climb slopes over 70 degrees! You can even go up trees with these things! Honda, watch out! Amazing stuff.

    We have two 2005 Suzuki King Quads and one 2005 Polaris 6x6. The Kings get to play and the Polaris goes to moose camp.

    Smile We now know the truth.

    He has been floating all those rivers in a Boot?

    A picture is worth a thousand words. They looked like they never been used, makes a man wonder. Just how much walking and how much talking.

    No picture of a 747. That "is" the way he gets to the hunting area, or am I wrong.

    Default Rides

    I just bought a 1999 Suzuki Quadrunner 500. Way more power than I need. I have had a couple of Rokon 2x2s for several years. The 4x4 is for the trails. The Rokons are for when the going gets tough. I will post a picture when I figure out how!

    My father-In-Law has a Suk Quadrunner 500. Those machines are beasts! Good reliable machines with plenty of power. Too bad he doesnt know how to ride it. :-)

    Patrick,

    What is your opinion of the ROKON? I have often thought they would be excellent to haul in a boat and to then use them to get off the river a couple of miles. Being a 2 wheeler you wouldn't need much of a trail compared to a 4x4 I would guess. I don't have any experience with them but have heard mixed signals about them. Seems to me they could open up a lot of ground.

    Default heres mine...and hers...

    Hey Mike, some of us ride >and< hike.
    And we actually get a speck of dirt on our boots too!

    The griz 660 has been a great machine. Her Kodiak has been stove-bolt reliable too.
    I've always loved Hondas, but the Yamahas are so much more comfortable to ride with the Indep susp...

    Default Honda TRX

    I have a 95 TRX 300 that has served me well but thinking of handing it down to my 16 yo and getting a new machine for my self.
    Im thinking about another Honda or that Bombardier Outlander 400 has gotten my attention. Has anyone had any expierience with the Bombardier?

    Frank, those almost look like Swamplites on that Grizz, if they are, how do you like them?

    I am guessing the Kodiak has stockers and the Grizz is fitted with Lites.

    Default tires...

    They are the mudlites. I like them. Everybody knows Yamaha's OEM tires are crap, the sidewalls are really weak. The mudlites really spin clean of the muck nicely, and still have a nice ride on hard trail. They make bigger/heavier ones, but that 660 does fine with the lighter set 'specially with the front diff lock. I've not had anything stop it yet. I've had two bou in the meat wagon and still churned along...
    I like your set up John, my last rig/wagon looked almost exactly like yours...Honda makes a great wheeler.

    The pic is a little small and I couldn't really tell the tread pattern, thats why I thought they might be Swamplites. I really like my Mudlites too, granted the aren't the best mud tire but I'm not a mud rider, unless there's some in my way of course. I really like the PakRat trailer, there's a clip inside that holds the brace up while it's being towed, it broke on me last fall so it was just kind of hanging there. I went to Plaschem to get a new clip and adhesive so i could fix it, they told me to bring in the lid and they would fix it for free. I did and they did, now thats great customer service, and i didn't even buy it new from them either.

    Talking 04 Polaris 700 carb

    I've got an 04.5 Polaris Sportsman 700 carb. It has Hot Seat Performance headers, exhaust, clutch, intake, and some carb work. Unstoppable and will pull a wheelie before you know it.
