Even when riding solo the longer wheel base of a 2up can really help smoothen the ride on some rough trails. They can also go up steeper hills before flipping back on you.
Don't put that to the test though.LOL

Man u have some stingy dealers up their. Most dealers will wheel and deal a bit and at least toss in a helmet or riding gear.

I hate when there's no end to a story so here's the final installment.
Caught the wife in a good mood and she agreed to check out the Polaris 570 2 Up. When we arrived at the dealership a salesman was just finishing up the sale of the unit we came to see to someone else. Parked behind it was a Rzr 570. My wife eyes lit up but I reminded her that ATV trails in Idaho are limited to 53 inches or less, at which point a salesman cruising by interjected about the Rzr 570 being only 50 inches wide. 10 minutes later my wife and said salesman were in the Rzr bombing around their test track. As soon as my wife took off the helmet I knew the Rzr would be coming home.

Here's the rare time I get to drive it...



And a pic of my Can Am

I bet you will not have to pull your new Polaris home with the Can Am.

Rzr 570 is a good trail machine. It should be plenty powerful and fast enough. Might be a good idea to get some doors for it too for added protection. I've never really liked the nets that most utvs have. Why they don't all come with at least partial doors is a mystery to me.

The dealer had the Rzr loaded up with optional goodies including steel doors. They had over $5000 worth of stuff attached. I bought the steel bumpers and the Cooter Brown top and had them take everything else off. My wife likes the stripped down look and didn't want doors.
I rode it to town couple days ago when it was only 9 degrees outside. I think a windshield would be nice.

Just fold for thought. the doors add strength to the whole roll bar system in case of a roll over

A full faced helmet helps a lot when it's cold like that. I learned the hard way not to take the helmet off when loading up to go home. It was so cold I started shivering. I never shiver. That was 18 with a 45 mph wind.... I've thought about getting a windshield off and on. Never remember to actually go looking for one though.
