02 Honda foreman 450 4x4...just put new to me tires on her.  I love the machine and most of the time she loves me ...except when she's trying to drown me, hang me or get me somehow.   Of course that could be the drivers fault too.....

Anyways, her name is Dallas.
It matters not the weapon nor its caliber, rather the caliber of the one who wields it.

No--- the only problem I've had (besides ruining the winch in the first year with creek water)  has been the back rack... the bolts keep shearing on both the aftermarket basket rack and the stock rack.....that seems to be pretty universal here on that machine and the Rubicon from the same year....you having any trouble with that?

No I haven't had any probelms with the rack and there have been many times that I have over 500# on the back rack. My buddies property has a feeder that is 3/4 mile off the road through some tough ground and we haul 2 guys plus 300# of corn back with no probelms. That is why I love this 4 wheeler with the solid axle they are bulletproof. I just hope that when this one dies honda still makes one that is close to being the same (solid back axle and manual shift).

I don't have my own yet but my uncle has a 500 and 600 polaris sportsmen on my grandpas farm I hunt at.  He uses them about twice a summer and I don't even have to ask to use them anymore.  They work great for anything from joy riding to dragging trails.

1989 yamaha big bear, 2004 handa rancher. the rancher has 4000 hrs and over 2500 miles. I only drive 6-10 miles a day while hunting oct. - dec. and only a few times each month. where did all the time and hours come from? LOL - Teenage son Maybe? heavon knows why he wont put miles on the big bear I let him have. My cousin bought a rubicon the same yr I bought my rancher , he has only 1000 miles and drives his way more than I. I'd like to try the bad boy buggy, would make a great tool for the national forest I hunt.

I have a 1997 Polaris 500 Sportsman that I bought new. It will pull a tree out by the roots if you wanted it to. You just can't bog it down, it's a real tourque monster. 12 years old and never had anything go wrong with it. If I ever wear this one out, I'll buy another one!

2005 honda foreman, its only 2 wheel drive but man what a machine, I have a small trailer that I pull behind it for getting deer out of my property. Its a real workhorse, would highly recomend.
