I mainly ride trails and do some creek riding and a good bit of mudding. i run over a decent bit of rocks and roots.

It's all fun and games till someone says " watch this " then its hilarious.

If you like to go fast and don't care about the big price diff. then get the brute. I have a 09 750i and there is noway I'd buy a rancher, unless it was for my 12 yr old or my o'lady. Not saying there is anything wrong with a rancher, I think it's a great quad, my buddy has one, I'm just spoiled by the power and ride of the brute. If you get a rancher just get the es 4x4 not the auto, I've read about it and it sound like junk. A 5speed with rev. will be more fun, and if you get a brute having a belt isn't bad, you're alawys in the right gear and if you take care of your shit your belt won't get wet. I've had mine up to the seat in water and never had a problem.

The new rancher AT is actually very nice. It's not the old hondamatic.

The problems in America arenít from liberals or conservatives, democrats or republicans.

The problems are bigots, hate mongers, fear peddlers and opportunists. History has shown that those people are far more dangerous than a few guys who talk differently or wear funny hats.

Ranchers are slow. I love mine but i wish it had more power as well. Best handling quad ive ever ridden though

I'm offended by political jokes. Too often they get elected.
