I would go back to the Foreman 500 with foot shift. They are more dependable, with less to mess up, especially in the cold temps. I am a Honda man, but I agree with quadracer, the Grizzly is a nice ATV. I like the diff lock that Honda doesn't offer and it is true they will really pull hard. They also have a great ride. I don't know about reliability with the Grizzly, though. I'm not saying that they're not reliable. I'm just saying I don't know if they're AS reliable as a Honda.
