Have ridden a SxS a number of times -- very enjoyable. Not on ultra hard trails, but have ridden in Alaska and in the Appalachian Mountains - in well maintained rental machines. Just purchased a 2017 machine (RZR S900 w EPS. 27 hours on it, garage kept. Used to work on my automobiles (maintenance, some engine teardown, tuneups, but nothing ultra complicated). Plan to do as much non-dealer equipment required maintenance myself. Will probably lurk on site to find questions/answers, but I will certainly speak up with a question as needed. Thank you for allowing me in the community.
