Just bought my first 4 wheel ATV though I shared a Honda 3-wheeler with my brother about 30 years ago. This new to me, 2002 Bombardier Quest 650 to help getting my firewood out of the woods around my house. You can see I just barely had enough trailer to bring it home. This is me gaining some minor confidence with reverse.

I'll probably ask lots of questions for a while till I am more comfortable.

hey bro, think i recognize you from some forum or another. the tracks are ok for steering, much better in the snow then anywhere else. my tracks are old tho and by all accounts the new ones are leaps and bounds ahead of the older technology.

I have owned them all at one time or another. Yamaha Big Bear, Suzuki Quadrunner, Artic Cat 650V-2, Polaris 500 and Polaris 550EPS. No Honda. I always thought they were to expensive. Hands down, Polaris is at the top of my list. The ride is unbeeeeeliveable. I just got the 550 with power steering last week. I sold the Cat. Not a bad unit. That Kawasaki 650V-2 motor takes a while to warm up but runs great. It sure likes the fuel though. I kept the Suzuki 500 as a loaner. You cant kill that thing. I also kept the Sportsman 500 as a loaner. Very nice ride for the price. I sold the yamaha this year because only a fool would have three loaners....lol

I had a Yamaha Banshee ATV up till recently when i sold it to my neighbor..cause i have been facing some suspension issues and also some leaking in the oil tank was also there. I am currently looking on some models from Suzuki. Although this one out here also looks good./

Already voted for the Yamaha.. i had been riding a Banshee and it was just awesome. Un till it started giving suspension issues as a result of an accident which my brother incurred while riding it.

If one has to choose between these three..it's gonna be a real tough choice. All the three are known to be the best manufacturers of the ATV's and produce the best reliable and quality motorvehicles.
