I have an 07 Outlander 500 XT and love the power, ride, ergonomics, and features of the machine. The visco lock is kinda a love/hate relationship...I wasn't a big fan at first but I've gotten used to it. The only time I don't like it is when I'm hill climbing and it kicks in unexpectedly. I don't plan on ever getting rid of the machine, and will probably keep it for the gf/wife to drive.

their asking 5500 for it and its brand new does that about right for a base model?

It sounds like a good price to me. A little more power than a SP500 for a few hundred more. Let us know when you pick it up and be sure to post some pics.

They have a 2007 hold over? Or is it used?

sometimes dealers just can't move inventory while others can. I would definitely make sure they give the "extra once-over" to ensure there is enough lubrication in the cylinders and the top end prior to putting too much time on it.

its a brand new machine. and yes the sales person said that it might take a little time when i finaly buy it because they have to change all the fluids and make sure every thing is in working condition.

I have a 04 kawasaki prairie 700 and would love to have a can am. They are very nice machines and I have not heard anything bad about them. You are making a good choice.

That's a steal! It's almost $2000 cheaper than what I paid for mine brand new! I've got the green one also with chrome mag rims - it's sharp. You won't be disappointed!

    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
    • P. S. Seasoning has a Memorial Say sale of 20% off everything plus free shipping on orders over $30.
    • Definitely blacks.  I haven't hit my blacks spot yet but matbe this weekend. 
    • Had a decent breeze last night so wasn't too bad.  
    • I would be out a morning or two if I still had the tag.   Afternoons must be a sauna in a blind.   We hunted in shorts and t-shirts in early May and were still hot when afternoon temps reached around 82 - 85 degrees.
