What ATV?

Hey guys, I'm looking to get into ATV's and was wondering what kinds you guys recommend? I was looking at this one:

How does that look? Is the price right? Are Polaris products reliable?

There are a few guys around here that run Polaris on the farm. They seem to be pretty reliable and hold up well. I am more of a Honda guy myself. That price is definately not right, that is probably still a $6,000 machine.

Thanks. I thought the price was way low too so that's why I got intrigued. Makes me wonder if the seller just doesn't know the market or if there are underlying problems.

I have an 08 Polaris Sportsman 500.

I like it a lot. Would rather have a Yamaha or Honda but after I bought this one I had no regrets.

Bought it with 450 miles from an older rancher. That thing was mint.

I like this one alot too but the price just seems too low if you know what I mean.

I also don't know if an 850 is bigger than I need. I mean more power is never a bad thing I just don't know if something else would suit me better.

The price IS too low. It is most likely a scam meaning they will answer with, "send money to this account and you can pick up at this location.."
Or some CRAP excuse like that!
Or some say they're overseas and their wife can drop it off if you send money to this random account. DO NOT FALL FOR THAT...EVER!



So... my 500 gets up and goes. It maxes out at about 58MPH with two people, and is pretty much fun all around!

An 850 will no doubt have more get up and go then mine... But knowing myself I would probably be in the hospital with such a powerful toy LOL.

And the only 850's I could find locally were all totaled... That tell you anything relating to my story?
