94 Kawasaki Bayou 300. Try to pay as little as I can for toys like this. Picked it up for $900 and included winch and snow blade. Doesn't even have 2000 miles on it yet. Doesn't have some of the trick stuff the new ones do, but make it work.

Great pictures! I ride a 08 polaris 500 sportsman.
I like it but want to get another. maybe some of you could help with what I'm looking for. My brother has all sports quads and it seems they are a completly different machine. In sand his do great where mine suck. Is there a utility quad 4x4 that has the rear wheel spin like the sport quad? Maybe i need the manual and chain drive I don't know.

2011 Polaris Sportsman 500 HO. I've added a 2500 lb winch and a rear rack extender since this picture was taken. It did a fine job of hauling in this years buck.

Hey - nothing wrong with that! Actually, I have a question for you. My son has out-grown his Grizzly 80 and I'd like to get him a 4X4 so it's easier for him to stay with me on the hunting trails. I want it to be fairly light-weight though, since he's small for his age. (12) What are your thoughts on the Bayou? Too heavy? He is a very skilled rider - I just want to make sure when he gets in those situations where a little rocking/body english is needed to maintain movement he'll be able to handle it.

We have a 98 bayou on the farm. The thing handles like a cinder block. Its got quite a bit of power but is not fun to ride. The suspenison isnt desgined for crusing a trail and its pretty slow. Its a well built machine but the quad was designed for pure utility. When i was about 13 i bought a honda rancher. Its the perfect fit. It can handle the work but itself sporty enough to have fun on too.

I have a 2006 Honda Rincon 660, three speed auto transmission with electric shift option, fully independent suspension. Very happy with it plan on using it for many years to come.

Get him one of those new Yamaha Grizzly Auto 350's, should be super easy to ride and no shifting.


That's ok, I'll ass shoot a dink.

All over the place! missing Af...
Stil riding my Rokon's. Current unit is a '68 with a newer 4 stroke motor shoehorned in. If one falls over on me I shove it off and walk under my own power rather than being airlifted to a severe care emergency hospital. I can go where there is not trail, in between trees placed close together, and ride for two full days on on 3 gallon tank full of gas.....

What I CANNOT do is go more than about 20MPH, ride to up very well, or carry a heavy load aboar the rig. I have to sled it out. I also cannot ride it long distances without lots f pain meds smile aas there is NO suspension on it.

For me, a good fit, not so much for others and I get that.

Polaris 6x6 has been a great work horse. Picked up an 06 Honda Rubicon with 400 miles on it. Looking forward to getting to know about Hondas.

I run 26" Goodyear Rawhide's in the non-snow months. The swap-over from tracks to tires or vice-versa takes about 45min.
