      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

I've got an 06 Outlander Max XT 400. Just got it a few months ago. It was well taken care of and I love it. I am not a hard trail rider and the 400 is all I need to pull the ice house around and haul some people too.

Bought a Outlander Max 650 last December. Bought new with a plow. Was going to buy a 700 grizz but, after rideing both liked the outlander better. Ive rode with the grizzlys, brutes, rincons, artic cats, just about all the same what i notice is how the outlander can take ruff trails a litlle better but, thats just my opion, And i like the power the Outlander has when needed.

I have the early version which is the Bombarier Traxter from 2001 and it has been a powerful and dependable machine for me.

I looked long and hard at that same machine, but in the end went with something else. Just little things about the other machine that I personally liked better - Nothing at all against the Can-Am, it's a great machine. Just personal preference.

Titelines, you made the right decision. I looked at them too and went with the same brand you did. I will not name the brand, but it's made in USA!

i do agree there is alotta power and in the 800 2 up more power and speed than u can imagine the thing is just nuts i like thst the rear suspentin is tortion arms and not a arms seems to make it a little less likely to catch stumps and think thats y the ride is very smooth my in laws all have polaris and once they decide to buy new again they r goin to go to Can Am also expensive yes for the 800 2 up its almost 2500 more than the sportsman 800 but ill spend the extra

Have always been a Polaris guy and had planned on getting a 500 Sportsman but after test riding the Can-Am and the Sportman, I like the features, ride, and power of the Can-Am better. It's been a great machine and love the 42 month warranty!

Hands down a better machine than anything else. You pay more, but you get more.

Sounds like you are a happy customer, thats good ....you make the best salesmen!

But, better is a pretty broad and general term and depends on what you are gauging it on.

I have nothing negative to say about Can-Am. I ride and enjoy my Skidoo sled because its better for me, and does everything I expect of it. But, I'd hesitate to say its hands down better for everyone.

Just because I have nearly 9000 miles on my Honda doesn't mean its hands down the best, it just means I'll be a repeat customer for the 13th time since 1976.

I work on most brands of ATV, so I see about every kind of abuse they are subject to. Although some stand out at some things, none are hands down the best at everything.

Ive had a couple of sportsmans and there is no comparison from the Can Am to a polaris.. Hands down Can Am!!

Well that is pretty obvious polaris has no comparison to any brand out there! Polaris is junk!!

I would take a Polaris frame and 4x4 system over a comparable Can Am system any day. wink If you could put the Can Am motor into a Polaris frame and use the Polaris 4x4 system, you would have one of the best machines out there IMO.

I wouldnt want a single part from polaris on my machine! All that frame does is add weight and that 4 wheel drive system is nothing great either. I got good evidence of this from 2 weekends ago
