Re: Bought new Yamaha today

I was ready to give you a traitor, 'cause I thought you'd bought an R1. Looks like fun, enjoy and be safe!

Such a short post - soooo to the point! * * *

Edit: I didn't even notice the first time I checked the pic out - isn't that Chain in the background admiring all the bling, yo?!

I agree it does look like fun. And for starters the Kodiak is for fun. Immediately I do need to use it to pull a stump, or two, out of the ground. Later this will be used for hunting. Last time I went out hunting, there was no way I was going to shoot anything as I was constantly thinking: 'How the hell am I to get anything out of here?'.

Yes, the YFZ is fun. However, the Honda TRX450R is coming.
There are as many rumors about it as there are the CBR1000RR, so Sept. 10th will be a good day.
I plan on picking one up as soon as it hits my dealer if all the rumors are true.

I currently have a Rubicon and a Rincon. We got our daughter a Predator 90. The Ruby is quite the workhorse.

I'll take it to the track.

I always envy the guys with 3 and 4 wheel atv that can scoot around the track with ease. Watching the races is more fun from different vantage points.

Re: Bought new Yamaha today

SoCal,
If you would, give me some feedback on the automatic tranny. I bought a Big Bear this spring because it is a manual. I've wondered since then about the auto and how well it works. I use mine exclusively for work and need to idle around sometimes without keeping the revs up. Any info would be great. Thanks.

I don't own one, had only seen one the day before this post was put on the board and I thought I would show how mean it looks.
But if you want to bring one down with you, you will be welcomed
