has anyone done a ride comparison personally? the stats look good on paper but that is on paper. either Polaris is really sure of themselves or they are scared people will try the can am. I have not ridden a can am so I wont knock them. I do like that can am has a split braking system though. I also have a hard time believing that the Polaris gets 31 mpg. my 800 Couldnt do that. two sides to every story?
