    Yea the 4 door ones get pricey quick. My buddy picked up a Canam maverick 1000 and that was still around 14k for a sxs one trim above base model

    I've been looking at beater trail vehicles, you can get non-street-legal for like 2k easy. Won't pass inspection, but whatever. 5k for something that would pass inspection there-abouts. For a wrangler add about 1k to those numbers, but overall "doable". If we stick around (doubtful) I will definitely be looking to grab something else for bashing in the trails.

    Edit: And can go to and from work as a backup if need be, and has heat and air conditioning, and can be used on the street vs a SXS etc. And more power, can hold more people, can tow more weight, etc etc. Not quite as nimble but a wrangler vs. some of those bigger SXS aren't that far off in their maneuverability.

    The biggest draw to a SxS over a trail beater is the width limits. I'm looking at SxS that are 50" wide. Then I can go on any wheeler trail in the state. Buddy just got a Maverick and it's pretty awesome.

    Yeah depends how serious you take your off roading etc. For me sxs wouldn't be worth it, I have contemplated getting an ATV with a plow/snow blower for the driveway though. But we only have a 3 car so that seems kind of silly :p especially since....now we want to go to Texas.

    Depending on the state you can make a SXS street legal, they make kits for it. A lot of the N/A 1000cc ones are up toward 100hp and some turbo models are 160+. Yes a truck or heep would be "more for the money" but i do see benefits for both. Personally I'd opt for a yota pickup/4runner or 1st gen taco that I could get for $2k-$3500

    Up here a lot of my buddies have farm plates. Can drive your SxS anywhere as long as it's daytime and within 50 miles of your house. We take the thing to downtown Meredith NH, it's hilarious.

    I have been considering buying one but I am very concerned that I will get bored of it after a season.

    The street legal kits are awesome! I'd love to romp through Boston in a SxS (assuming traffic is still light as it is now).

    Fair. I mean, yeah they'd be fun. Just my approach I guess. I'd go for shortest wheel base possible, you can find wranglers in the same condition for the same cost as old yotas/4runners/tacomas. They're meh but still hard to beat on the trails.

    Nice! Yeah I saw a ton when I was in the moutains in AK.

    You could always get one of those giant snowblower attachments or a plow for it :p

    i looked into it for a bit. would have to look up laws by town etc but at least in taunton it could only be used on like 30mph roads or less. something along that line

    Not to mention if you do find one in stock the gun line is all backed up. Had to go back the next day a couple weeks ago they were so busy.

    Spent a lot of time at Floating Bridge as a kid. I didn't live to far from there. It was closed to vehicle traffic for a while, but I think it's back open now.

    Got the raptor liner done today. Compressor was 5 gallon and I think 10 would be great. It did the job but I think ran more than the manual says it prefers :rolleyes:

    went to the bike park in the morning. Got
    My hands on a very nice Santa Cruise. Suckkkks on the slow easy trails but killed it on the big drops. Don’t know if any thunder mountain fans here but it really pulled threw for me on Hollywerd.

    Any of you guys replace your AC condenser. Guess mine has a leak.

    I have a 26 hard tail motobecane that thing is fun. Basically I don’t really care about it much it’s cheap so I huck that thing. Haven’t hid thunder mountain I like the small town stuff more. Down in RI area we have Vietnam Swansea Lincoln woods and big river. It’s fun, I feel like the commercial stuff is cool but feels “different”

    I've always wanted to ride a quad, but I don't know anyone who currently has one. My cousin had the LT500 when I was a kid which he replaced the piston in it and it was stupid fast. He got run over by it one point. My friends brother had a quad and got run over by it too. In fact, nearly everyone I've known who's had one has been run over by it.

    I'd probably end up with the same fate, but it looks like it would be fun. I hit a tree with a snowmobile when I was a kid, Amy pulled me off a jet ski when I was turning, so yeah. I still want a jet ski though, I did like 55 MPH the first time I was on one and immediately wanted more. I had my shoulders touching the handlebars trying to get lower to get another MPH or two.

    That LT500 was a beast of a machine. I still really want one. My friends are I had pretty modest ATVs and dirt bikes, nothing spectacular or overly high performance but they'd still go about 50 (one of my older dirt bikes had a speedo for a bit until I broke it off). One of my friends' cousins and his friends would come ride with us from time to time and they all had completely done up Banshees. Those things were scary fast. The new ones have just kept getting bigger and more powerful, I can't imagine what they can do now. When I was growing up, the 250-400 cc range was about as big and bad as they got. The utility ATVs were just starting to break into the 600 cc range and Kawasaki I believe was the first one to bring a V-twin to the game. They've just kept getting more and more ridiculous ever since. The new Can-Am Renegade 1000 is my current dream ATV.

    The speed freak side of me is one reason I never got into motorcycles. I know I’d want a sport bike, and a fast one at that. I loved the white and blue GSX-R when I was in high school that were super popular. That speed coupled with my lack of coordination was why I stayed away.

    I’ve been there twice now to help out with some wiring. Good experience both times. I’m still planning the suspension setup I want, but once I figure it out I’ll have them help out with it as well. The shop Tacoma they have is beautiful. I saw some videos of them taking it out last week and it looked like it did well. They are definitely more than just a Jeep shop now.
