I wanna wheeler!!

7 posts in this topic

I can't take it anymore...I need to buy a wheeler and with our little check from uncle sam coming now may be the time. I'm having a hard time finding stuff that isn't 5 or 6 years old but still asking a pretty penny for. These seem to hold their value really good, so my question is do you just buy a new/carryover instead of dealing with someone elses stuff? I have noticed that some of the "older" ones tend to be more loaded with options though. It will mainly be used at the cabin in Walker and some trails/ice fishing so it should last me a long time.

Buying used isn't such a bad deal. Some people take care of their things and others beat the livin' you know what out of them and still think they are worth the same as one that is comparable in the same model year. I don't see it that way. For example, there was a very nice clean atv and trailer just in the for sale section here, but it is now sold. I have seen other stuff that you can tell was stored outside, never cleaned, never maintained and ridden like it was a bulldozer. There are good deals if you look.

Aside from that, the hold-over models are a very good deal, IMO. They still have the warranty like new, and the prices are right. This year, it seems there are '07 models still available. This should bring a very good deal for the buyers.

All of the big name brands offer very competitive models if compared price-wise. Choose what you like, and try to get some seat time on a few different ones before you decide.

While you are there, get some riding gear and ride safe! smile

We bought a hold over 2up Polaris in January and saved $1500 off the original MSP. We had looked at one dealer and they weren't discounting squat so went to another and got a very good deal.

I got a 93 Yamaha off of Craig's List a couple of months ago for $1100. It had a gas leak and took me about $150 to get it running real good, but it's going great now for a total of $1250.

I bought a 94 Suzuki King Quad a few months back and it was the best investment that I have made in a long time. The price was right and it was well taken care of. I just put on a set of new tires this past week but I really do not have alot of money tyed up in it so Im happy... If I had the money I would have looked into purchasing a newer unit but for now this will get me by.

    • Hillary and DWS didn't commit any crimes as difficult as that is to believe. Sketchy politics certainly, but what happens within a political party has no legal ramifications. The FBI already cleared Clinton of wrongdoing with regards to the email.   Flynn and other members of Trump's team are likely in violation of the Logan Act.
    • Well, if that happens then let the chips fall but do you think they will be arresting Hillary and DWS at the same time? If so it would be a good start.
    • I would wager the FBI arresting members of Trump's team, likely starting with Michael Flynn. Flynn made 5 phone calls to a Russian Ambassador on the day Obama imposed sanctions. Trump's team defended the 5 calls by stating Flynn was just wishing him Merry Christmas, which is odd because it was December 29th.   http://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-eyes-michael-flynns-links-to-russia-1485134942    
    • Nick, so what are the top schemes the left plans to conjure up for impeachment?
    • Go Pats. They need one for the thumb.
    • And I am sure it will be a waste of server space You do understand that you just defined the meaning of the word conjecture don't you?     But there is conjecture so you have that  The only thing odd is that you are falling for the same type of fake news the Birthers fell for during the Obama years. Don't you understand you are quickly becoming the JV of libertopia?    Well, If you feel compelled then go ahead and forward your research to the proper authorities so they have a better chance at putting together the evidence to prosecute him because apparently without your insight they are not able to connect the proverbial dots. 
    • The dnc had russian propaganda that the russians hacked and released? Guess they provided the transparency the left is always so concerned about.
