Thanks for allowing me to join this forum. Have been involved in atv's and utv's for more than 20 yrs.  Recently retired and sold my atv's and purchased a UTV for wife and I.  Looked at two uo atv's but liked the side x side much better, steering wheels are much easier to drive than handle bars when you have bad shoulders like I do. Wife has artificial hips so throwing a leg over is not as easy as it used to be, but the SxS remedies that. We noe have a motorhome and an enclosed trailer to travel the country and see the various trails in this great country of ours. We bought a Kymco model 450i and it has turned out to be an exceptional machine, trouble free and will climb a tree if you can hold on...I have no problem keeping up with much larger machines up to 40 mph, it has a great hole shot. Anyone looking for a quality built side x side should take a close look at the Kymco lineup. They have the lowest number of problems per 100 machines sold in the industry ( Polaris has the highest). Looking forward to hearing about everyones adventures and mods made to there machines.

Thanks, hope to be able to add some information from my experiences if needed, and looking forward to reading others experiences and comments.   As far as the Kymco quality yes, they are really growing and their reliability is second to none. They are not race machines but good solid reliable utility machines with a very good ride quality. So far everyone that has seen it has been very impressed with its comfort and performance.

      I Recently purchased a Massimo T-Boss 550F last fall with their 60" snow thrower because I couldn't find a decent UTV here in Southern Ontario; nothing in stock anywhere. I am having really bad buyer's remorse after spending time on it and reading all the bad online reviews. The company boasts the fact that it is built in Texas, USA, so I was hoping to do the right thing by buying, "Made In North America" but it is still Chinese Junk, assembled in the USA. and I am starting to realize that I am going to have a lot of difficulty getting parts for this thing; I can't even get an oil filter, finally bought a "Hisun" filter and hope it fits. i busted the shear pins in the snow thrower and can't find replacements for that either. The thing is so hard to change gears most of the time; I am terrified I am going to wreck something. The place I purchased it from is absolutely useless. Can I adjust something myself? Anyone out there have this problem and have some advice (besides selling it and buying a good brand)?

      Been using our beloved 2005 Polaris Sportsman 500 HO for many years to get us around with tools, feed, and other farm work. Each winter it has plowed us out of just about anything north central WA winters have thrown at us.  Problem is I'm going to be 70 this year and riding around in the open with temps in the teens and plowing 4,000 of gravel driveway is getting tougher.
      So we are looking for a strictly utilitarian UTV. No trail riding, no need for beverage cups, no bluetooth speaker systems, not a diesel and not electric Just a good solid vehicle with a full cab, something that I can hook a snow plow system to that will handle up to 8 to 12" of snow once every few years but mostly 4 to 6" at a time. Probably my last buy and I'd like something reliable with some longevity, not too hard to find parts for and that I can do a fair amount of the work on.
      Does such a piece of equipment that meets those requirements even exist anymore and if so I'd appreciate some recommendations. Thanks

      Earlier this week — and after much anticipation — Lexus unveiled the new 2022 LX 600 SUV. It's a luxurious American version of the new Land Cruiser and shares a V6 powertrain with the new Toyota Tundra pickup. The LX wasn't a shock; it's just about the most characteristically "Lexus" vehicle one could imagine, except perhaps the LS sedan. But Lexus also released a different vehicle you would not have expected this week.
      At the end of the LX announcement video, Lexus teased a new mobility concept called the "Recreational Off-Highway Vehicle," or ROV. It's an all-terrain vehicle — or, as we will choose to interpret it, a supremely badass golf cart — that runs on a hydrogen combustion engine. Sadly, Lexus did not include an utterly superfluous spindle grille, although the shape of the front end will certainly remind you of that shape.



      An ATV makes perfect sense as a showcase for hydrogen combustion. One of the technology's most significant drawbacks for current production use is that it can't produce as much power as gasoline combustion engines with the same size engine footprint. So a low-speed wood path cruiser could get away with far less power than a recreational on-highway vehicle.

      Hello all,
      Was wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a good two way communication headset. It's too loud in my Razr to easily have a conversation with the wife, and want to go the headset route to help with that and reduce cockpit noise.
      Thanks!
