    What are your thoughts?
    Avid mx rider picking up a Grizzly 550, should I get one with EPS? The lady will also be riding it..
    When I was younger we always had 4x4's around to play with, I never had any issues with steering, and I haven't rode one yet with EPS.

    Not from my personal experience but the hosts of Dirt Trax TV praise EPS. Of course they could just be getting paid to say that.

    My parents have a 700 and a 550 both with power steering. It's great in 4wd. I rode my friend's700 without power steering and I could instantly tell how much better it is with it

    I own 2 Honda Foremans both have EPS. Just finished an elk hunt where we had over 12 inches of snow. My hunting partner has a Polaris without EPS and I had to move his around camp and I was amazed on how hard it was to steer his machine over mine with the EPS so I would have to say I highly recomend it.
