I figured it was only a matter of time before they released a Pearl White model, They had these as Polish Limited Editions in 2009

What do you think of the "custom cut and sew seat"? Don't all of the XP EPS models come with ADC and EBS? Good value - $500 buys the front box, winch, and seat.

WOW, I just paid $8750 OTD for my orange. Cant see the $2K diff. I can buy alot of aftermarket stuff for that kinda pocket change. Unless thats a gold plated winch, thats the only diff I can see from mine to the LEs.

Keep in mind those are MSRP prices. Your Orange Madness has an MSRP of $9999........ That's only a $500 difference at MSRP which gets you a winch and a different paint scheme.

I know, I was preaching to myself. Im a little mad I didn't see this 2 weeks ago when I bought. So I was trying to justify it for my own pocket book. Not sure i wouldv'e choosen the white over the orange but still Id atleast like to have known about it.

Our '08 Model "T"

Just wanted to share pics of our 2008 pearl white LE. The color is what sold us on this model. It stood out from all of the others on the dealer's showroom floor. And it matches my wife's car!

I love that orange color. No chance of you not being seen on the trails..:)

And to Redneckron...we looked at the X2 also, but for the type of riding we felt we would be doing, decided on the "T". Plus my wife was not comfortable on the back seat and that MEANS a lot...:)

Canadian Prices

Interesting how we Canadians are invited to pay $2000 - $3000 more for the privilege of purchasing an American product.
Never mind that our dollar has been at par with the U/S for the last two years or so. In fact, it is currently worth 2 cents more that the mighty green back.
Not sure who to blame for it but I'm pretty sure we're getting screwed.
So much for the free trade agreement.
Hell I'll bet even the little Stars & Stripes sticker that was attached to the right rear fender was manufactured in China. Maybe that's the problem?

Now that my bitter tirade is over. That rear rack plate on the White 850 looks like a home-made one. Got any details? Not much room for storage on the touring models is there?

Klimbimm...You're right..that is a homemade setup. Like you and I suspect many others with Model T's, I found the rear "rack" left a lot to be desired. Not being skilled at metal/welding work, I decided to use materials at hand to solve the problem. I used a piece of 3/4" plywood cut and notched to fit the rear rack and clear the rear seat removal strap. I also had to notch an area underneath to clear a hump in the rack. I replaced several of the bolts holding the Polaris rack with longer metric bolts and washers that would hold the whole thing together. The tie-downs are cheap kitchen cabinet handles using longer bolts and washers to hold them in place. They are placed to match the tie-downs on our Tamarack bag. I added a few extra for other tie-down points. It has worked great for over 2 years now and I expect to get several more years of use out of it. I shared the idea with an individual on ATVQuadSquad and he took it a step further and built one out of metal. It looks really nice and sturdy. If I find someone locally that can make me one from metal, I'll do it, eventually. I've included a link to Picasa Web Albums where I posted a group of pics of our ATV and close-ups of the rack. They should give you a better idea and maybe you can improve on it. Let me know what you think..Gary in Westcliffe, CO. https://picasaweb.google.com/whisperingpine1/RearRackModification#

Excellent idea

An ingenious solution to the storage issue. Looks pretty decent as well.
I'm gonna give it some thought and see what I come up with.

Cheers,

Klimbimm...thank you. On that setup, the small handles and two large holes match up with the tie-down straps on the Tamarack bag. The other, larger handles give me places to attach bungees or other straps to hold small gas cans, etc. I also wanted to point out that I "modified" the Tamarack bag. The 2 side pouches were designed to attach to front of the bag which would work on a regular ATV seat. Because of the Model T's setup, I had to move them to the sides by moving the fasteners and resewing and pop-riveting them for strength. One bag is insulated and the other is not. We also have two smaller Tamarack bags, one for each fender. These are double bags, lined with plastic, like the large back bag, to give them shape. They also have 2 removable bottle holders attached to each one. I don't think these are available anymore. We also carry one or two small coolers on the front rack and a small gas can on the back rack, depending on the trip length. You can never have too much storage or extra food, water, and gas....Gary from Westcliffe...
