I hope you get many years of use out of it. All of the Yamahas my friend's family had were good except for the Breeze. It just couldn't handle the number of miles we did on a ride. I think someone else made them for Yamaha.

Decided that since most riding is by myself, Iíd be smarter to stick with 4x4 after some of the replies about better to have it and not use it, than the other way around. I managed to find a good (touch wood) used Yamy Bruin 350 that I am loving so far on the handful of times Iíve been out. Thanks again everyone. Cheers
Yamaha build great machines. If you ride much by yourself I'd look into getting a winch.

If you have a 2wd truck or suv it might be wise to try the traction of them in the Arizona terrain. if there's no traction problems then you wouldn't have any problems with just a 2WD model. however, the price difference between 4WD and 2WD isn't that high anyways so i would recommend 4wd.
