Quad or SideXSide

Hey Gang, looking at getting a Quad or SideXside, just wanna get peoples thoughts on what to look for or keep away from. Looking at something new....got my eye on the new Grizzly 700 for a quad & the new Yamaha Wolverine for a sidexside

Can't go wrong with a grizzly. If you don't plan on bringing a passenger regularly go for a quad.

Something to collect dust the side by side will keep more from landing on the floor
I have seen way more fucked up broken sbs than quads could be the I have a cage I'm invincible syndrome
Personally I would get a quad over a sbs and buy a Suzuki samari if you want to go fsrin heater and roof and cheaper than a sbs

The problem I have with sxs is the width, when a friend brings out a sxs we have to take wider trails and or cut half the forest down to get them through and they end up getting stuck in truck ruts be because they are too wide to ride the high spots. My 5 cents

Both have their place. Depends on the type of ridding you want to do. Quads are the answer for trails and hunting. Side x side would be better for logging roads, the dunes in Oregon and wider trails. I've seen some side x sides on some trails and was quite impressed but it all depends on the trail.

I still rather be able to jump off a quad if I'm about to roll down a steep hill though.

You can set up a sxs with a stereo and flashy red lights. ...but I have a jeep for that

50 inch SXS is only bit wider the many of the larger quads. for hunting I would go SXS simply because your mainly on established trails and FSR and you have room for everything . for some reason when people tip a quad they normally hang on and get squished or try to hold it back and get squished .

ive seen sxs everywhere I have seen quads the width isn't an issue and I have seen the smaller SXS go places where quads can only dream.

SxS are safer, more user friendly and bit more versatile. They do have their limitations like any machine. Quads are obviously more nimble but require a bit more skill to operate safely.
As far as off road performance I would say its subjective. Mud, snow, and very technical trails a SxS will struggle when compared to a quad. Climbing and descending steep hills with uneven terrain a SxS will out perform a Quad.

I do think SxS's remove some of the fun when it comes to skilled/technical riding, much like a quad does to a dirt bike.

On the plus side of the golf cart, you can enjoy a beverage while you are driving. No stopping required. ......

Tried the zero G cup holder on the fiddy, didn't work
