Non-member forums answered 2 questions I had, so I thought I'd better hook-up to this site. Just stepped up to a Sportsman 500 (built in this century), from a 23 yr. old Trail Boss 250. Gotta have a good one for my summer jobs, and its gotta be tough. The old one served me well, but I love the fact that I don't feel like a giant riding a pony on this '02! Happy Trails!
