New Toy for me

So I have finally crossed over to the dark side and bought myself a new quad.
2016 Polaris Sportsman 570SP. Have only been able to put 18km on it so far but am loving every minute of it. Power steering is fucking amazing!

Summer just got alot more fun for this guy. Anyways here are a couple pics of it. Was having too much fun riding to get any action shots, next time

Thanks trailjunkie, I would recommend at least checking out the Polaris line, their pricing is good and they are supposed to have the best and only true 4wd on the market. Power steering is amazing, no sore shoulders after a good ride

Polaris calls it true 4-wheel drive because when it is engaged it is indeed sending full power to all 4 wheels all the time irregardless of the traction conditions under the wheels. The system senses differential wheel speed between the front and the rear and then engages within 1/5 wheel revolution. I believe there must be a 20% difference in wheel speed before the system engages.

That's where I bought it, at Spectra Powersports, 1500 less than anywhere else.
Of course bought the extended 5 year full warranty.

Thanks Lj Johnson it needed to happen cause there is so many more
Quadding trails than jeep trails around here
