First ride was a short 1 hour ride thru a few creeks and woods. I hit one pretty steep hill it climbed it great. Second ride was yesterday, rode for over 2 hours fresh cut timber roads so there was tree tops and branches everywhere. I hated hitting all those branches but I only see one scratch on the front by the winch cutout. Owners manual says no WOT till after 3 hours so I seen I had 3.8 and I did 2 short WOT runs about 10 seconds each and it runs pretty good. After the 2 rides I noticed the Polaris does make more noise then the Honda I had like drivetrain backlash and clutch whine. All in all I like the Polaris alot.
