razor 900 yes
can am 800 side by side yes
wildcat no no and another no
grizzly no to much like a dinosaur
550 touring Polaris yes but not for me the 2 up thing
warrior give it some HP and take 20 years off of me ya for a toy
Arctic 550 H1 even if it would not have blown up NO to old school, little tires

the cool, wild look sitting there and comin down the trail Wildcat all the way

PS after we are back Arctic will not stand behind the rock in clutch area he turned it into Ins. and they covered it under Vandalism
The wildcat owner traded for Can Am Maverick (102 hp) this thing will rip

we do this trip every year we all used to ride Polaris but as you can see times are a changing
we are all good friends form the same area, all the trail riding and racing is all in fun and believe me it is allot of crazy talk at the end of the night when the cocktails come out and then we start all over again the next day
