    Three UTVs and a bike headed out to the wild outback of northern Nevada yesterday.

    Last winter's rain created some ruts in what use to be trails..


    Damn Googleman messed with us..

    That looks like a blast!! How is the average riding suspension with one of those? Do you feel everything? My 400ex was great for flat stuff, but I would feel it the next day if it was rough.. I was thinking I should get a 4x4 atv, but those look like fun!

    Amazingly compliant Keith.

    I can ride in mine ALL DAY and feel fine and mine isn't even a racer boy version

    Comfy bench seat that fits the wife and pup too.

    As I have been looking at these UTV's I noticed different styles like in this picture.. Do both have the same suspension, or is your friends stiffer like the difference between a 2 wheel drive ATV and a 4x4? I'm kind of a Honda fan, is there a model you would recommend(kinda want a 4 seater)?

    My buddy's Polaris 1000 Turbo is insane but 10k in overkill for tight trail riding. It's more for blasting sand dunes or wide open roads.

    My problem is I can't fit in any of the SXS with bucket seats..


    I'm very happy with my farm truck, damn thing climbs anything, has plenty of suspension, very comfy and under 14k


    Lots of storage too..
