    Default 08 Grizzly 700 Limited Edition - pics!

    I got my Grizzly! Ben at Performance Yamaha in Wasilla actually worked until almost midnight last night getting it put together for me, and installing the throttle and grip warmers, and the winch. Ben rocks! He's the salesman and, apparently one of their best mechanics.

    I went out with BigHinER and some other friends today to break it in. We rode out to the glacier and put on 68 miles. It runs smooth and comfortable, has plenty of power, and I love the power steering. Not to mention the looks.

    Enough chatter, here's the pics:





    The rest of the pics from the ride are HERE in case anyone wants to look.

    The other 299,300,000 people can have it.

    Man, that's a nice four-wheeler. I bet it was cold out. Going to put different tires on it?

    Well, the stock ones work so well in the snow and ice I think I'll keep them until break-up. When mud season begins I'll probably get some bigger and more aggressive tires.

    AKsoldier,

    New Grizzly looks great...Ben is the man! He hooked me up on my Rhino and Grizzly I purchased last year. I would recommend anyone to go talk to Ben. He does right by his customers. Enjoy the new Grizzly!

    Yeah, Ben really went above and beyond when I bought my wife's Big Bear and my son's Grizzly 80 last year, that's why I keep going back.

    That's a nice machine!! Are you keeping the Bear? I ride an '07 BB and love it. I almost bought the Griz 700 DU edition but hind sight is always 20/20.

    Yes, the Big Bear is actually my wife's wheeler. I bought it for her a year ago when I was home on R&R leave from Iraq. She had been wanting one, and needed a way to keep the driveway clear of snow while I was gone, so she got the Big Bear with a plow. I've used it more than she has, but she loves it. It will likely be my hunting rig, since it is simple, reliable, lifted with 27" swamplites and has a back-up pull starter. The new Grizz is my recreational ride, and may eventually pull other duties if it proves itself.
