Anyone on here got one? We've got a bunch of friends who have gotten into them the last couple years. My bil and nephew both have 2, so we ride one of theirs sometimes. My wife went with a bunch of them to Redbird a couple weeks ago and absolutely loved it. I was a little worried that she wouldn't like it, but luckily she went the first time with a friend that doesn't get "too crazy"(unlike a few other family and friends we have. ::)) The guy that Kim rode along with had doors on his RZR, so she didn't get too muddy.....
It was pretty wet the day they were there...
Kim started a new job on Monday, so if this pans out, I'm pretty sure we'll be getting one. Probably be next spring though before we can get one. They're legal to drive on the roads here in Sullivan and Greene counties and I'm looking forward to having a new way to get to my hunting and fishing holes. My bil stopped by the other night on a brand new RZR-S, be nice if he still has his old RZR when we're ready to buy one...
I know! If we get one, I'm sure it will be used. I can't see paying 15 grand for something that is gonna get tore up. Our nephew has the RZR XP900 and a Ranger 800. We've rode the Ranger and that thing this is sweet. I'd actually prefer one of those, but I'm not sure we'd be able to keep up with our friends on their razors at redbird or the other places they ride.

I'd love to have a Gator, but I don't know how much use I'd get out of it outside of hauling it somewhere on the weekends. The wife's grandpa has a Gator...siting in the garage as an expensive shelf, because her idiot uncle buried it in the mud and locked up the engine. How many people get out of a two-three year stint in jail and have a new four-wheeler and Gator waiting on them?
If you get one next spring you'll be able to zip right over the West Island.
Well, I'm glad I hadn't bought one of these yet. A couple big wigs showed up at Kim's bank Friday morning, called them in the office one at a time, and told them they're shutting down their branch and they are all out of a job as of May 2nd. And this is a bank branch that has been there for around 50 years. What the HELL are the odds??
One of the ladies has been there 17 years and will be 1 month from retirement on May 2nd. I'm sure that has nothing to do with her losing her job.
It better be.....I drove it right off the showroom floor! For as much as these go for it was scaring me too bad to buy used when I've seen what some of them are put through. I looked at a used 2014 Honda Pioneer this morning in Terre Haute with only 500 miles that looked like it had been setting on the bottom of a pond at one time. Went back south to Linton Cycle and bought a new one.

Had to look up the laws on carrying guns and bows on the Ranger and thought I'd post them here so I can remember.
IC 14-16-1-23 Sec. 23. (a) An individual shall not operate a vehicle under any of the following conditions:
(9) While transporting on or in the vehicle a firearm unless the firearm is: (A) unloaded; and (B) securely encased or equipped with and made inoperative by a manufactured keylocked trigger housing mechanism.
(14) An individual shall not operate a vehicle while a bow is present in or on the vehicle if the nock of an arrow is in position on the string of the bow.
And if we ever get enough ice to drive one on.... (5) On the frozen surface of public waters within: (A) one hundred (100) feet of an individual not in or upon a vehicle; or (B) one hundred (100)feet of a fishing shanty or shelter; except at a speed of not more than five (5) miles per hour.

I can't stress enough the importance of 9B! This is the one that most people overlook or don't even think about. My hunting buddy and a few guys were heading across a field on a 4 wheeler to hunt ducks one morning. A CO came out there at the same time and checked their licenses. He also checked to see if their guns were loaded. None of the guns were loaded but they all got citations for not having the guns in a case. They were completely dumbfounded when that happened. They thought the CO was feeding them a line of BS. My question is this...do these rules apply to all motor vehicles or just off road vehicles? If it applies to all vehicles, I guess the days of the gun rack in the back window of the truck are long gone??
