Congrats! I think you made a wise choice. I LOVE the grunt my 06 800 EFI Sportsman has, but, our early 04 400, 07 450 and 08 500 EFI will go everywhere and do everything the 800 will do, on HALF the fuel. Yeah, I can out run them but, where we ride, there are no trails straight enough or long enough to flaunt the top end of the 800. I think you will be completely happy. I still LOVE the early 04 400 every time I throw a leg over it. It is nimble, easy to steer (especially over the 800) and will run out to 55mph with no problems. It was a plowing machine when I got it with just under 700 miles and just under 200 hours about 3 years ago, for $2500. Haven't been sorry for not even one day.
Polaris for LIFE! "Work hard, play HARDER"!
