Hi Everyone, I wanted to introduce myself as a new member here. My name is David and I live in Northeast Arizona. I am a good friend of Creed82 here and he said I should check this site out. I recently started riding quads as a way to spend time with my 12-year-old son - previously I have been a dual-sport motorcycle rider but my son and wife prefer 4 wheels so here I am. For him, we found a 2014 Honda Recon ES in great shape a couple of months ago. For myself, I purchased a 2014 Yamaha Grizzly 450 but before too long I decided I wanted something different - mainly I don't like the feel of the CVT transmission. While looking at Craigslist last week I found advertised a 2015 Honda Foreman that only had 6 miles on it. After a phone call with the seller, I found out that he was helping a friend sell it who had bought it and got busy and lost the land he was going to ride it on so he parked it in his garage and never rode it. Now a couple of years later he is in need of some cash and needs to unload it. So I am the happy owner of a brand new 2015 Honda Foreman ES for a pretty great price compared to getting it from a dealer, $3k-$4k less. I put more miles on it in the first day of owning it than he did in 4 years :smile. Needless to say I am excited to get some time on it and get to know you folks here on the forum. Here are a couple pics of the Foreman and another with me and my boy on the Recon (Creed82 is taking the picture).

P.S. - if anyone knows someone looking for a great condition 2014 Yamaha Grizzly 450 - I have one for sale :wink.

David, I posted a video of you new Foreman on the channel tonight. I think the video does a better job than the photos.

Here's a video we took of the new (old) Foreman making its first hill climbs. Videos never do justice, this hill is nearly wheelie-steep and quite tall, while also covered with loose rock. The Foreman did well, of course.
