This thing is really cool. The power steering is sweet. Lots of features I didn't have on my Vinson. It's gonna take me awhile to get used to an auto . No more shifting YaHoooo. Now my boots won't have a wear mark on the left toe...lol. Have to buy a bigger cover for it. This thing is huge. 96.6 long. Can't wait to get it out for a ride. I also got Team Effort on board as a sponser. They filled out the applacation and gave me a check today.

I plan on going around and taking it easy with this baby. I have to get a few years out of this one. The next one I buy will be a SxS. But thats 4-5 years down the road. By then they should all have power steering and adjustable seats...lol

Glad to see a few new cats. I am with Dennis on this one, keep them on the trails and you should get long life out of them. I know for a fact if you had to they would crawl over anything.

Dennis the blue is very sharp. The hardest thing to get used to riding is to watch where the rear tire tracks. The TRV is a bit longer and cats are wider by nature but after a few rides it will become second nature.

Got the winch wired up today and it works... :grin: Also drilled out the 2 rear boxes to fit my rear rack. Just waiting for my rear speed rack and front cat box to come and then I'm ready to roll. Should have it all together this week. Hoping to get out next weekend to stretch her legs... :sport:
