Default What's the best ATV/UTV you've ever owned?

Hey ATV Connectioners!

What's the best quad you've ever owned/ridden? Is it your new Outlander or is it the trusty Foreman you've had for years?

Which one gives you that warm, fuzzy feeling when you think about it?

Let's hear you sound off!

My present Sportsman X2. It's seen about 3500 hard miles and never let me down. Couple small issues. Nothing that's left me stranded. Wouldn't mind an 850 though.

Sportsman 500 H.O.. My 2001 had Mud Runner tires on it and could go anywhere.

My 2007 Grizzly 700 has 12,000 miles on it now and its still going strong, not easy miles either. Hours are over 800. I bought a new 2009 SE Grizzly that is sitting in the garage with 2 miles on it. Maybe I will switch when the old one has 15,000 ????

For reliability all of them. I had a 1987 250 2wd Yamaha Moto4, 1989 Yamaha 4x4 350 Big Bear, 2001 Honda Foreman and now a 2001 Polaris 500 Sportsman.

I always by used and always seem to get lucky, the Sportsman is the most fun of all of them though.

Sold the Big Bear and Foreman to friends and there still going great.

As great of a machine as my 800 X2 was, I have to give it up for the XP 850 EPS. The power and the ride and the power steering just make this a much more enjoyable avt to ride.

The best ATV I've ever owned was a 2005 Bombardier DS 650 that was Viper Red. I won a whole slew of desert racing trophies on that ATV. It was rode hard and put up wet countless times, and logged thousands of racing miles. Dust, deep silt, rocks, mud, and even some snow and water, ... nothing stopped it. I rode that ATV harder than it should have been ridden, and even rolled it a few times, and it never ever broke down, and never failed to get me to the finish line.

Polaris I have the 500 HO couple small issues with it nothing serious. I have ridden the 550xp love the power steering but dont like the smaller seat. My nephew has the 700 and it is slower on the start but has the 500 in a long straight stretch. I have ridden in and driven the RZR and for me it is a lot of bouncing around and with a bad back I had to cut it short and get back on my 500 as it has a smoother ride (I dont know if it was the shock setup or what but it was like riding a go cart real bouncy feel every little bump in the RZR)

I would have to say my 92 Polaris Trailblazer. It was flipped, rolled, and abused and always came back for more. In 05 when I got my 500 HO, I sold it, and its still running strong. The only problem I ever had out of it was the drive belt snapped after 10 years while my nephew was in the middle of climbing a nasty hill and it rolled him, and the brake lines were going bad in in 05. That bike has had a good run.
