The current Sportsman X2 was bought in late summer of 2005? So it's about 7 years old. 3600 abusive miles and it's held up pretty well. I have to think if I drove slower things would be going even better...
1983 Honda Big Red ATC 200cc (bought new 6 years gave it to my son)
1988 Honda TRX 300 4X4 ( bought new sold after 20 years big mistake )
2003 Honda Rincon 650 (bought new I still ride it)
2004 DS 650 (3 years bought used)
2008 Can Am Renegade 800 X (bought used 8 months like it!)
It's like a sensation that I can't shake, I love riding in the mountains of WV. Live in South Central PA making a trip to WV next week, I plan on having fun.
Had an 88 Honda 300 up until December 011 when I sold it with very little trouble out of it even with all the abuse that was heaped upon it throughout its many years:mud,over loading,pulling too heavy loads,wot,big tires,etc...
