I just bought this RS1, and have had the chance to put it through its paces. Polaris really hit a home run with this new machine. I really think it is more fun than any off road vehicle I have ever owned. Handling and agility are fantastic. Visibility out of the machine is unmatched in the UTV world, and you can see exactly where the tires are going, which makes it easy to navigate tight terrain at higher speed. Power and suspension are fantastic. Stability is great, rock crawling ability is great. Everything just works the way it is supposed to. Pictures above are from yesterday's ride.

They look like the ultimate fun ride in the 4 wheel world. It sure would be nice to have wide open spaces to open it up without a lot of traveling involved. That's one of those things I can only dream of.

I continue to be more and more impressed with the RS1 as time goes on, and I accumulate more seat time. The balance and agility are amazing. To me, it feels like I would imagine a cat feels. You know the way you can hold a cat upside-down three feet off the ground, and drop the cat, and it still lands on its feet? Well that's the way the RS1 feels. It always seems to land perfect, no matter the take off or landing area. I purposely hit a section of whoops faster than I knew I could make it through them. As I approached the section of whoops I thought to myself "I can't make these at this speed", but I kept my foot in the throttle, and did it anyway. All it did was turn a section of whoops into a rhythm section, turning them into a series of double or triple jumps. I'm just as impressed with its stable well planted feel on off camber terrain, and when rock crawling. So far, I haven't found one thing I don't like about it. Here's a picture from yesterday. We did the first loop of a motorcycle desert race course.

Looks like you're going to find it's or your limit soon. Great rig for the area you live and ride.

I think if they made it a little narrower, it would be nice. It is kinda cool. But yeah, need some wide open spaces to really let er rip.
