Back in the Saddle Again !!!

Hey Guys,

Been a while since I've posted on here (used to be on here daily a few years back) and just wanted to happily report that I am now the proud owner of a 2017 Sportsman 1K. Well, not officially yet, they had to bring it in from another dealership (matte copper color was a limited run apparently). I Look forward to trying to visit this site more often than I have been.

Probably just a winch for now. Maybe Upgrade the front pinion housing since apparently its a common issue on these newer big bores . Later will add a front/rear brush guards and that will be about it I think. Gonna leave the stock rims/tires alone...

What changed ?

I thought you ditched the 850 because you preferred the sxs ?

The biggest factor would be our kids. They are starting to participate in the sport more and more (riding along in the ranger) so instead of buying another side by side we decided that it would be a better idea to upgrade from the 1989 Yamaha that I ride when they want to come to a new machine. When they do come with my wife takes them in the Ranger because we feel that its safer and sometimes I like to "play"
