    Default ATVs who has one? and what do you use it for?

    I dont currently have an ATV of anykind. If i can find one i like for the right price i will be buying one. I want to use it to plow, and for hunting. Im not big on ridding them for sport etc since id rather be fishing and ride a snowmobile in the winter.
    But they have a great application for my needs and most people seem to be getting one type or another.
    Also if you have a side by side let us know since the sport models are fast and the utility models are real workers as well.

    Im after a grizzly 660, just wondering what the rest of the users on the site have. Im not really in the market for one since im after another boat right now. That is why i was wondering who uses them because there are alot of people who have the sport quads that rip etc. Just nice to see who uses what for what since different parts of the country and the world have different needs.

    ahh atv's. i love em! once i was old enough for a powerwheels my dad bought me an atv powerwheels and when he went riding theyd strap it to the back of their quads and take it off to let me ride with them! lol. back on topic. i have 2 currently. a 1989 honda foreman 4x4 350d thing is a tank i have a 2000 polaris magnum 2x4 325, thing isnt that bad on dry land, but once it hits water its crappy. i usually just take nice rides everyweekend its relaxing to me. this past weekend i took them up the mountain and did some rock crawling lol. had a blast. i also use them when im going camping i load up a trailer for a john deer tractor and tow it down to the camp site its great for hauling wood too!

    edit:
    i forgot that in the winter we use the honda to plow, thing pushes a ****load of snow its amazing, saves a lot of time

    I have a 1993 Suzuki KingQuad 300, It doesnt have the performance of the newer ones, and it burns a ton of oil, but its a good machine. I haven't used it for almost 2 years. I use it mostly when I'm out camping, or when I have some time to just go out for a ride. But, since I don't have room to store it at home (right now, anyway) I haven't been out to use it lately.

    I used to ride a Grizzly 600. It was always a blast. Reliable, too.
