New to the site and my first Polaris

Hello everyone, just purchased my first Polaris Sportsman 850 XP. Took it out to St. Joe state park in Park Hills, Mo. today and had a blast. Ive ridden just about every atv out there except a can-am and I can honestly say its one of the best. Averaged about 20mpg and only got stuck once. New winch and replacement tires are coming soon. Decided on the new Pitbull Growlers 26.5's and still trying to decide on spending the money on a Warn or saving a bit and getting one of the cheap ones off ebay??????????????????????

welcome to the site! glad you like your machine

winchs are kinda a 'you-get-what-you-pay-for' thing. would personally save to get the warn. when you need a winch, your REALLY need it to work.

Welcome aboard. Congrats on your new purchase. I have a warn on my Suzuki Vinson (I know, I know what is a Vinson guy doing on a Polaris site). It has come in handy several times.

Anyway, if I can ever help with new fluids for your ATV, don't hesitate to ask.

Take care,
