    Surprised to see so many Polaris guys here! Polaris is all I've ever owned...95' 300 2-stroke, 94' 400 2-stroke, 06' 450 Sportsman, and 08' 500 Sportsman. Never had to take any of them to the shop! Never minded the Honda's I have rode either. Before the 4 wheelers, we always had Honda 3-wheelers growing up and they were bullet proof.

    I'm a Honda guy myself, 03 Rubicon 500. Never a problem and over 2,000 miles. I agree that Honda is slow to make changes /upgrades to thier machines, but it's hard to argue with thier legendary reliability. One of the many things i love about my rig is the transmission and the ability to navigate extreeme down hill grades with little to no braking. IMO, the Honda transmission with it's multitude of gear selections is the best in the industry.

    I believe Can-Am was the most expensive, are they worth the extra money.

    I will also second the Suzuki! Their price tag is a little better and they are great machines!

    Yes, the Can-Am is worth the extra cost for hunting and trail riding, IMO. packer58 is spot on with the Honda Rubicon 500 but I only use my Rubicon for work where stiff springs and shocks are a plus. Mine is an 02 with one overhaul in 12 years of daily ranch use. My Foreman is two wheel drive and very dependable but only knows to plow straight ahead and ride rough and a bit unstable. I bought all my atvs used except the Foreman. Bought all the Can-Am snowmobiles used also, rentals at that. Two were from West Yellowstone before the enviros ruined it.
    I have strong ties to Honda, having raced an XR 600 in the Baja 1000 with a lot of help from Honda. Honda of Russellville, in 1989 was the number one dealership of the nation. Get the Sawarovski of atvs, get the Can-Am for hunting.

    I have a 2006 suzuki eiger now king quad. Thing is bullet proof. I love how simple it is. When you look at the underside of mine versus other brands there seems to be less to break/bend worry about. For a 400 it will outclimb and outrun my father in laws polaris 500 HO.
    I have hauled out a full elk with one passenger with no problems. It is a comfortable ride but I am still young (29). I have not had one problem while performing regular oil changes/maintenance.

    Well, I went out to the dealership today and purchased a new 2012, Yamaha, 550, Griz, with power steering, EFI, independent suspension front and rear, and a 5.5 year, Bumper to Bumper Warranty!! I had them look at my quad and they offered me $2,000. cash for her, which I used for a down payment. I cleaned her up good and purty, don't think they noticed oil leaking from the head gasket...hehehe.
