New meat here ... I have been riding ATVs for about 15 years (and currently own a Can Am Outty Max), but am starting to think about a SxS. My knees are not what they once were and the thought of sitting in, rather than on, a ride is starting to appeal to me.

Joined to become "official" while I do my nest imitation of absorbing information from y'all who use these things (as opposed to the dealer sales folk who just want a sale).

I look forward to hanging 'round.

Sam

Welcome Sam. The majority here have been riding some type of rigs for a long time. I can say that in my floating around these forums I have only saw one person go back to a quad. You would be disappointed.

Hey Sam,

I am glad you joined the site. You can find a lot of info about SxS's here. That is what we are all about. Also there are many different machines here. However, most have been converting to the RZRS.

Welcome!!!!!

Hey Sam welcome2 I also roda a MAX. Man I loved that machine!! Shoulder issues persuaded me to go to a SXS. Glad I did for sure. But I miss it terribly sometimes. Anyway, unload the Can AM and take the plunge. These guys here are the best and a hoot to ride with. Don't forget to go 'ORANGE'

Wow ... Lots-o-welcoming words. Thanks!

I found out about this forum / club / site through being an on / off / on again participant on the Windrock ATV Club forums (use the same handle there). Been a little inactive for a couple of years having gone through the ugly reality of a divorce and a few health issues that have made me change my attitude toward life a bit.

I love anything off-road. I still am a semi-avid Jeeper and lead rides for Jeep Jamboree USA. I still love my Can Am, and depending upon what I end up buying, I may keep it. I also have a Can Am Spyder for street toy that is an absolute blast as well.

Love to elk hunt, but live where there aint any. I get out to CO on average every other year to hunt. I am a Life Member in the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, thus the handle ...

I am focusing on the RZR and RZRS machines, but am trying to learn all I can before dropping the dough on a machine. I have tended not to do many mods on the quads I have owned ... skids, winch, tires, and a storage box is usually all I do ... and will probably continue that way.

Anyways, thanks for the warm welcome. I hope to get to meet y'all on the trails in 2010. Have a great holiday season.

Welcome to the site. I had a new Sportsman quad that I could not ride because of 2 bad hip surgeries. Went side x side. Now we can ride several hours or more with no complaints. The quad rides would only last a few hours and we were beat up. We had a RZR first and loved it. Went on the rougher trail rides with this club and found that we needed to make some mods. Our luck was a couple we knew wanted our RZR, then we bought a RZRS. No regrets now. We use it on our property with a 4'x4' trailer when we need to haul things. It is ready for the rough trails anythime that way. Good luck and get the information you are seeking from this site.
