Hey guys I'm trying to get some good input out here for a good utility quad. I'm looking for one that my wife can ride as well. I have been looking at the 700 Rincon mainly because it is large enough to carry us both and its an automatic she wouldn't have to shift gears just gas and go. My friend has a Can-Am 800r that quad is sweet! I know it's not a Honda but that would be my second choice 800cc twin cylinder 71Hp. it's pretty fast too! Very comfortable to sit on and the passenger has a backrest. I Love hondas more. I'm open for suggestions. My wife did tell me if I got one it had to be PINK!! great was my reply a fat guy riding a Pink quad! Tough guys ride Pink Right? thanks in advance for the help.

My girlfriend's family is all about Polaris and has always had very good luck with them (even after i beat the snot out of them). I know of some people in northern NH that use the Polaris ATV and Ranger selction on their farms and have always had good luck with them. They are a great work vehicle.

The Grizzly is a great machine, Polaris is making some really good 4x4 machines. The Can Am has the Rotax motor in it, an absolutely amazing motor. Look into Power Steering for your wife.

Oh, and here is my pink quad...no joke. it sits in my garage.

I do like the can-am lots of impresive power from a rotax motor but 9 G's is alot to forkout right now.

The Rancher is a good reliable Quad. If you are going to spend like 10grand on one of those huge ute s buy a side by side. I have ridden a few. That is mo on the best ute. I like reliable. Me and dad Bought a 1987 Yamaha BigBear from my Grandfather. He was the orginal owner. Good quad. Put new itp mudlites on it, new brakes, and rebuilt carb, etc . Super quad and Its not a Honda. Been good to my grandfather and us. If I was not going to get a rancher i would go with a Yamaha. Those Big Honda automatics seem to have alot of issues.

I want to get a Rzr, not the S, but I'm waiting for them to be out several years so I can find a used one. I don't want the '08, I'll wait for an '09.

From what little I know, you won't go wrong with a Honda for resale value. Not sure about just general quality or performance, etc, but for sheer resale and demand, Honda is a good buy.

Aside from the Rzr, I want a Rancher with the new AT like Green has, but with PS. When those start hitting the used market I'm gonna get one as long as they don't have problems with the new AT and PS in the first few years.
