I've had ATV's for decades. Still have my '02 Rancher with just short of 10K on the clock.

My first UTV was the Yamaha Viking. I didn't go Honda at that point, because the 700 without low range would have been useless to me.
The Viking was a great machine. I put right at 1000 miles on it. But by this time last year, the negative aspects of the machine finally got to me; Too noisy, not enough real power, locked rear dif (no turf) and poor suspension. In short, it was too far towards the "utilitarian" side, and not enough on the "sport" side. A great machine, but I wanted more.

I picked up my Pioneer 1000-3 LE last June, & love it. Yea, the passenger seat gets hot.. I put an 8" automotive fan under the seat, and that seems to do the trick. The LE comes with fox shocks that work very, very well. The motor makes more than enough power for any trial riding, and is QUIET.

I have just short of 700 miles on it now, and am very happy with my purchase. I believe I'll keep it around for awile. :-)
