Sold the 2016 Rancher

Well, today I sold the Rancher to my dad...

He just got a good chunk of land to retire on and he wants a new bike, but just doesn't want to spend the money on it because he wants a new truck..

But he knows he needs the bike for fire wood, gardens, and to patrol...lol...

I lent him the Rancher since the snow has been gone because I've been to busy to use it anyway.. He just loves it..

So I offered to sell it to him for $4000... Its a nice bik, Only 1000km.. I've never hurt it..Warn winch and Reptiles too.. I figured not a bad price....

Well he gimme $5000 ....lol.. So I think he appreciated it..


I'm going to look at a 1984 200es trike tonight looks near mint other than the front fender... I can't be without some sort of all terrain apparatus..

I'll probably get to use it 3 times this year the way the schedule is looking..

I'll post pics of the trike if I get it..

well they always make more, so, selling your dad it, I bet you can still borrow it from time to time too LOL


dirt bikes and sleds,(even street bikes for a while) to me are toys, that when I have them, many sit and get little no use, but as soon as I sell one, I seem to miss it more than ever, and end up shortly there after buying another one, then they sit and I sell and repeat
I must have gone thru about 40+ motorcycle s with this problem I have HAHA!

Thx for the comments guys..


Picked up the 84 ES... I need to pick up a carb kit for it, I'm pretty sure the reason I got such a good deal is because the idle mixture screw fell out...lol...
