They also make it in a 500. She wanted the pearl white machine but they do not currently make the 800 in white.

I would have to say that the pictures don't do it justice, the paint has a better finish in person.

I agree. It is a metallic paint like on my brute. It looks very nice and holds up rather well. It will look better longer and not so dull looking like the molded colors.

Nah, I just ugraded to some new EPI springs, after Saturday hers won't look so shiny once her fancy paint job gets all scratched up. It does look better than her old 500 she traded in. I tried to get her to buy a camo one. She also test drove the new power steering grizzlys but didn't like them.

I was told it was sunburst orange or sunset orange, can't remember. Mies had one at the fair and it was a 500. The guy said it was "limited", but with what happened with the Stealth, I don't know what limited means for Polaris.

I went to the Polaris web site to check it out and saw the MSRP and almost fainted. I guess we won't be getting a second one too soon.

There was alot of things she didn't like about it.

She said it was not as comfortable, the power steering felt intrusive at higher speeds, with the lesser wait she felt it bounced her around too much and she didn't care for the color choices as well except for the black/tribal L.E.

With the Sportsman she was able to keep all her accesories and not need to rebuy those, also with the grizz she would have needed to buy aftermarket tires right away. In the end the grizz would have ended up costing her over $2K more.

Was that with the trade or without?

That was the floor price of the stock machine. The L.E. Grizzly was $7995. Both of these numbers were negotiated before any trades were discussed.

    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
