I am considering a 2009 Sportsman Touring 500 EFI X2. Main use will be on roads in a cabin area (7,200 ft) at low speeds - <30mph. But, we will also trailer it to other ATV tracks, backcountry roads and trails in the Utah mountains and deserts. No high speed or aggessive off roading. Mountains can involve altitude to 9,000 ft. The dealer is near the cabin and at 7,000 feet - he indicates that they adjust the clutch for altitude and that the 500 will have plenty of power for our needs, plus save dollars compared to an 800.

We compared the Polaris to the Can-AM and liked the setup and features of the Polaris better, though the 500 Can-AM had a little more power.

Price is just over $7,000.

This is my first entry into ATVing - been hoofing it to this point - so I need some advise.

Please Fire Away!!

Thanks - Hank

Heck I got my 2008 for about $8000 this last Feb. If you don't need the power go for the 500! And welcome aboard!
