So I am thinking of someday getting a ATV. I have a few questions that I hope can be answered.
Is there enough back roads/ATV trails around Anchorage? Is it even worth buying an ATV?
How well does Arctic Cat ATVs hold up? This is a huge purchase and I do not want to make a mistake. I am most fond of Arctic Cat's looks and options. I like Honda, but am not fond of the Rincon's looks.
Kawasaki Brute Force looks great, good power, but lacks power steering.
Not fond of Yamaha Grizzlies. Love Yamaha, but that's one ugly ATV
Can Am - eh....I don't know. Too expensive.
Polaris? I hate their racks. Too much plastic.
Back to the Arctic Cat. Do you think a 700 is powerful enough to tote around me (6'4 200lbs) and wife (5'6 160) plus a little gear? Or am I better off going for the 1000? It seems there is not a whole lot price difference. I could be wrong. It's hard getting prices on these things!
Thanks in advance for anyone with knowledge!
