Id post some pic`s but you guys dont have anywhere on here to download too, and i dont have a Yahoo site or anything, most of the guys i ride with dont have a clue how to run a computer, they have run logging trucks and loaders, most are retired loggers, yup we got it pretty good, like i said no rules or regulations yet, :D

Im in Terrace bud and retired. quading is a great way to get to the Kitimat for fishing and just plain enjoying all the back roads we have around here, noticed you were looking at the Yamaha, and CanAm, my brotherinlaw in Kitimat has an 05 450 Yamy and he really likes it, put bearclaw tires on it for better traction, windshied as you no for our rain, and heated grips and thumb warmer, he has 2 yamahas, and i have one yamy for the wife and mine is a polarass, we got them at Kens in terrace, not bad to deal with, canams are great but you have to go to Burns Lake to buy it and for parts and service, too far for me, :D

Hi Fiftygrit. :D
I was in Kens today and got a quote from him, not bad, your right about the can-am to far away. Probably will go with Ken sometime later this month, only problem that I'm working on is how do I get it under the tree-He He. I was also over to Neids, I'm not impressed. Anyways I had ask Ken about the skid plates if he though I should put them on instead of leaving the plastic ones there, any suggestions?. Also I toying with the idea of buying a trailer from Canadian Tire, there on sale next week. the other option is to leave it in my truck. Any input would be a help.
PS do you hunt?
:D

Duck I use to hunt all the time, but my back doesnt allow it any more, and them damn moose are way too heavey to roll around, my brother in law didnt add any extra skid plates at all and he seems to do okay with his Kodiak, did you look at the 450 polaras when you were at Kens, ive got a Pol and love the suspension, and the whole bottom is skid plate, my bro inlaw put bearclaw tires, heated grips,and thumb warmer, and a winshield, and a soft storage pack on his, great all around machine, they are nice and narrow for some of the skinny trails we have up here, :D

Fitygrit-My hunting days for moose are almost over also, just can't pack them anymore, last one I shot was 400yds off the road through heavy brush from a log clearing. Near killed me. I will be retiring in the next 2 years and were thinking about moving into Alberta. Maybe I will hunt more deer there :D Did look at the polaris but I'm little nervous about all the storys I have heard on there brakedowns, also I would have to look at a trailer because it's long for my box. One thing I did notice is that the cowing on the machine look a little flimsy but the price is better and it has more options. This is a tough one, I'm bounching back and forth here, which one? The writeups do put the Polaris sportsmen 450 way ahead of the Yamaha 450 in the smoothness of the ride. How do you like your instrumentation package? :?:

My bro inlaw bought a trailer at wallyworld, they were on sale when he got his, my bro inlaws 450 kodiak is 421cc my pol. 400 is 425cc the ride on my pol is way nicer than his, ive got heated grips, thumb warmer windshield and 26in mudlights, the bigger tread ones, some of the old retired guys i ride with have 500 pol and i cant think of a time any of us had any problems with them, except one guy drown in deep water, cant blame the machine for that hahahaha you have to sit on them and see which one you like, I like the pol because of the one lever does all brakes, not 2 on the bars, love the switch for 4x4 lock, works great, push the button and your in 4 lock, they are both great machines, i would love to try the canam but way to far to burns lake. :D

Hi Fitygrit-I feel like a ping pong ball, I'm going to smithers on the weekend to sit on can-am outlander 500, if it fits I'm going to put myself out of my misery. I hate shopping, new toys drive me crazy. If it dosn't fit I'm just going to close my eye's and flip a a coin... Hey thanks for the invite Cam :) but I'm teething right now :shock: , talk to me in a month when I'm able to think straight. HeHeHEHE.

Ya, I got a few toys on it, my parts guy sees $$$$ when i come in the shop. It really helps you get stuck about 20 feet further than your buddies winch cable will reach :oops: . We have some friends in Smithers that want us to come up riding next year, heard it's real nice up there. Been snowmobiling in Smithers, Terrace, Houston, and that is nice, would imagine quading is just as good. If any of you want to make a grizz come to life ask me about mods, I've wasted lots of money on stuff that didn't work, so I can save you some $'s. I also know a few cheep, next to free,mods that I can share!

Hi guys :D , Just finished making the deal for the Out 500. I will be going to Burns Lake to pick it up in Feb or March. The store in Smithers gave me excellent service but the price difference was $400. Nice kid in Smithers to deal with though, Anyways I will be putting on some after market goodies. To start I going to put on Skid plates as soon as I get it. I am going to Terrace today to order a trailer from Can-tire, I'm told it take a month for it to come in so it should work out okay. So I"m going to wrap the brochure up and put it under my tree for christmass. Anyways a Merry Christmass to All and a Happy New Year'''''''''
:D
PS. Hey Rocketron what wouldn't you buy for After Market Stuff?

Hi Fiftygrit, So Santa is going to be good to you.... :lol: :lol: Any hints on make or model? I'm glad for you. By the way I order a Lousiania trailer dog today, When I get my trailer I'll install it. The only thing about buying this ATV that bothers me is the thief rate is so high on them. Anyways Merry Christmass fiftygrit.......
