AS clean as it will ever be.
Nice, is see you added all kinds of stuff right off the bat.
I Figured it would be much easier to bolt accessories on a clean machine.

I Have since added storage bags on the rear rack and a 10 meter radio w/ antenna (as required by my hunt club). I'm still waiting on my rear brush guard (it's on back order). I'll post a pic after its installed.

Your hunting club requires a 10 Meter radio? Wow...So you have a FCC license for this?
I am assuming you hunt in some fairly remote locations.

Yes, we do hunt a very remote 22K acre swamp and as an obviously HAM operator you know that we must legally hold the appropriate license. Our club doesn't break many laws that I know of.

Sounds like an awesome place to hunt! I love getting as far away from civilization as possible every now and then.

How do you like the 570. And would it be able to ride two adults on it. What about the power I heard it was torquey

With some sort of "lounger" to extend the seat it's defiantly doable. To give you some idea, just last weekend, I had a hunting buddy on the back for about a five mile ride to a deer stand. It was mostly flat terrain, mud/water around the swamp and there were zero issues. I really couldn't tell he was back there and he claimed the ride was comfortable. To put things in perspective, I'm 225lbs my hunting buddy around 200 lbs. The 570 didn't seem to mind...

Sounds good.. I know they are doing the touring model but my wife doesn't like to sitting high up like the second seat does on the touring. Right now I have a 09 sportsman 500 efi and have a backrest and we ride comfortable. I love the power steering but if we do go with the touring is it standard on the touring. I know its an option on the standard.
