I dont want to start a brand war here, and know this horse has probably been beat to death, but would like some opinions on which atv/utv would give me the best service. This purchase is for my 13 year old son (big boy....6 feet tall 180 lbs.) He is responsible and won't abuse the machine. My only experience has been with Honda atv's and the John Deere Gator utv. I drove the Honda's at work for years and they always provided good service and got me in and out of places that I probably shouldn't have been in the first place. I am interested in the Honda and the Arctic Cat atvs (400-500cc) and need opinions on both. I am wide open to UTV suggestions. I liked the Gator, but it is more of a farm type/ construction site utv and I don't think it would serve us well here in AK. What are your thoughts. Thanks!!
