Go for it! A brand new 500 for that price? How can you pass up a deal like that.My 500 HO has plenty of power to haul my fat butt around. I'm almost as big as you. My neighbor has a Grizzly and so does his co-worker.But I go anywhere that they do. He also became a member of the G.R.O.C. Grizzly Roll Over Club ! ! He bought a set of Excecutioners for it and flipped it over on top of himself out in the woods.Guess who got the call for a "rescue mission"?

That is a hell of a deal for their asking price of 4800. It was damn hard for me to get mine for under retail (6200) including the taxes.

Hell I'd buy another one for that much. Too bad the quad is in CT

The 800 is a gas hog but has the wow factor for speed and torque

Wife got pissed this afternoon, wants money back in bank monday!, 500 people emailed me saying they got blown off by another buyer, now crying back to me, my offer is now back to $4500, it all started with a $4000 offer Friday.
I'd rather finance than waste the 4500

the best offer i have found, other than yours, is a 2011 500HO with 24 miles on it for $4899. i would definitely jump on that, its a steal.
