Hey Guys!
Well I finally did it I ordered a new ATV today! From Team Effort Cycle in Hanover Twp. I ordered a 2012 Arctic Cat TRV 1000i GT! Its a two up 1000cc with power steering alum wheels and its the arctic green metallic automotive paint. I am having the Warn 3000 lb winch installed along with the front brush guard, rear bumper, a standard TRV rear rack for when the back seat is off and I got the TRV saddle bags.It also has the Arctic Cat 50th anniversary badge. I contacted four Cat dealers and Team Effort made me a deal that nobody could match, they gave me the best price for the new Cat and the most for my Polaris trade in. As of now they have not given me a delivery date but they said I should know in a day or so. I can't wait, I feel like a kid a month before Christmas. I looked at Can Ams and Cats and the Cat won out with the 1000cc's.

Congratulations on joining the cat club :gimme5: :cheers: Can't wait to see the new ride!

Any questions on the new ride there is a great group of guys on this fourm board you will want to join.

I have learned a lot from this site and do some of my own work on the machine thanks to that website.
The metallic green is a nice color, much nicer then the lime green.

Thanks Guys!, I was really losing intrest in riding I had zero faith in the Polaris 4 out of the last 5 times I went riding something went wrong with it. God I love Lynda she really pushed to get a new quad. After the picnic that was it, we were getting a new one. Mike, thanks for the Arcticchat, I'm signed up. Also I know there is a lot more Cat knowledge, experience and expertise in the club to lean on.

I don't know Bob. Mine was to be built on the 17th but has now been pushed back to today the 19'th according to Rich at Cubes. I'm pretty sure they were making the regular GT's first and then the TRV GT's next. If mine was pushed back then yours probably was also. Of course I could be wrong. I hope we both get them soon!!!!!
