I finally got a new ride...you're going to hang me!

Hey friends,

So after 14 months of patience and planning, this past Saturday I went down to Phoenix and picked up a brand new Honda. Yes, it has four wheels, but...I have so many people in my life who want to come along for the ride, I just couldn't bring myself to get a Rancher/Foreman/Rubicon, so I got the CLOSEST thing to it:

nice sxs !. kinda confused though ?, you said you wanted something bigger because of your family ?, well, as I see it, your only going to be able to bring one person along. all you gained is one place for another passenger. why didn't you go with a double row seater ?, like the 1000, or maybe the 700 ?, or do they not have double row seats on these ?, pretty sure the 1000 has double row seats, not sure on the 700 though ?. something tells me, your going to wish you had gotten the bigger sxs later on.

Not sure about his application, because he may have picked up a hold over, but 2018's are out there and info on the 19's are available. For the 2019's, additional colors will be available, i.e., yellow, white, https://powersports.honda.com/pioneer/500/home.aspx

okkkkkkkkk..if he did get a older model ( which makes sense for it being a 2017, and partzilla only shows this model in 2017 ) then why would the dealership sell it to him as a 2018 ?. how can you go and buy parts for a 2018 500sxs, when the last year shows they made them was in 2017 ?. I know honda ( and most companies ) sell year behind models as new models, but this is not the case. that dealership sold him a 2017 500 sxs model as a 2018 500 sxs, and no where on any sites ( that I seen so far ? ) shows any 2018 500 sxs for parts ?, but they do list 2017 500 sxs all day long. I don't know about the OP ?, but I sure as heck would want to know what year model I just forked down a large sum of cash for ??!!..lol. it sounds like this dealership sold him a 2017 model at a 2018 price tag ?..hmmm. this will be interesting to learn :-).

I now have made the connection between Southwest/Creed. Personally, I'm delighted and thrilled for you to get something knowing how much you enjoyed the Rancher. I also look forward to seeing some videos and comments along with way regarding the P500. Knowing you, those factory tires will be worn down soon given the ability to ride on hard surfaces unlike here, LOL.

You can PM me on the side and I will share some ideas on how to make the ride even more enjoyable..

I agree, sharing the road with vehicles in a 1025 lb unit is intimating and something, I wouldn't be interested in as well. Like you, I'll stick with the trails. In the town next to me, SxS are allowed in town where the speed is 30 mph and you see tons of UTV's, and not allowed outside that 30 mph circle around town. A number of these folks have fully enclosed units with air/heat, etc..... and suspect they have more $$ in the UTV than a very nice vehicle...
