Well I finally Traded.

Yep, finally traded my 08 800 Sportsman for a 2017 Sportsman 850 SP in Radar Blue. Gonna finalize the paper work in the morning and bring it home. I'll miss my 800 but look forward to getting out on the new 850. Only bad part is I work 2nd shift and have to work Saturday so there won't be any riding this week.

Thanks, I already have a list of Polaris accessories I plan to add. Not a big fan of the stock tires but I guess I'll let them wear a little before getting new ones, then I'm gonna upgrade to either Bear Claw HTRs or Grim Reapers.

Congrats! Gotta' love that new ATV smell.

First ride:My brother's old Baja 500 entry sponsored by Bushmaster body corp. *not 1000 miles years ago....
Tubular frame buggy, Porsche jugs machined to VW block, " Pat Rutledge machinist" a VW bus close ratio transaxle & turning brakes.
My dad bought it for me to learn how to drive @ 10 & I been hooked ever since passing along the adrenaline to offspring for decades.LOL
Current rides:2015 570-a keeper 2016 570 X2-a keeper 2012 550 X2-selling
Past rides:2008 800HO red Sportsman, sold. 2008 800 HO Sportsman X2 stolen. & pizzed 2009 RZRs, sold.
Too many scooters to mention so lets go with the rare ones I need to kick myself for parting with.
1979 Honda CBX filled with Ontario Motor Speedway parts, Yoshi 6 into one & gummy bear PZ2s on the street.
1979 Kawasaki Z1R-TC only 500 made 10.32 quarter mile stock. $4400. when new in 79.
Used one just sold for way over 100k... hindsight is 20/20

Yeah man, I test drove it about a week ago and it's been itching at me to get it sense. Got them to throw me in a free set of hand guards too.

I doubt you will miss the struts, divorced engine/trans, and the VVVVVVVVVVVTTTT of the parallel firing engine one bit.

I'll try an have some pictures in the morning before I got to work, may not get to post them till tomorrow night though. I have to say I'll miss the ole 800 for sure. Hope the new 850 will be as good as it was. Looking forward to trying the EPS out on the trail too.

EPS is a game changer IMHO.

First thing I do is desticker and wax. Meguiars Ultimate liquid has been my new favorite. Helps with cleanup...
