It's stamped into the frame in the front left wheel well.

The tenth digit is the year.

Locate left front lower A-arm, Move back on lower frame rail approx 8", it is stamped into the lower frame rail on the side so you should be able to see it from kneeling behind front tire. On some machines that were riden in tall grass or brush numbers can be rubbed thin and hard to read. Hope this helps, TORK.

I'm not sure if there is anywhere else.

Turn your wheels to the right, and look in the left front wheel well.

You should be able to see the black frame. It's just an imprint, so it won't really pop out. It doesn't say "VIN" or anything either, it's just that set of numbers imprinted.

Take some window cleaner and clean that piece of framing in the wheel well. I doubt it rubbed off, but I don't know.

If you still can't find it, I'll research other places the VIN might be. Though, I don't imagine it would be anywhere else, seeing as how the only truly unique piece of your machine is the frame itself.
