I have stood looking thru the window of the Honda dealer admiring the 2007. The dealer won't let me in anymore because I sit on the machine and make motor sounds. They say I scare the real customers.
nice looking machine

I have a couple of the 06 rancher AT 400s. I just bought them this summer and they sure seem nice compared to the last set of wheelers I had. (early 90's Suzukis) Looks like the difference between the 06 and the 07 is the 07 has a little bigger carb and there is something different about the front differential. (not sure exactly what)

We used them up off the Denali and they were smooth, went through mud I couldn't believe and we had zero problems with them. The only thing I didn't like was when I was pulling the trailer behind one of them, there was a couple of times I could have used just a bit more power. On a side note, I got back from the hunt and found my wifes cousin selling his 2004 Fourman Rubicon 500. It was too good a deal to pass up so I bought it too. Haven't really had a chance to put it to the test yet.

Interesting thing today, My father-in-law, brother-in-law and one of their company employees came out to ride my 4 wheelers. One of the Rancher ATs developed a weird problem. If you put it in reverse the engine starts to miss. It is perfectly smooth in forward gear. It does this if it is 2 or 4wd, ESP or auto. That's kinda bizarre...must be the something in the electronics?
