Tyler - I still owe you a hat on me! Girlfriend baby? You been BUSY... You guys know what your having. I'll expect a VX-1 order for the little one if she's born prior to Christmas, LOL. Tyler I need your cell #, got a new phone after a wader mishap and lost everything. Say hello to Bud !

Fishingking - Not for nothing but who would want to marry you with your fishing schedule. Your a dead man now sounds like you have already handed the pants over pal... Congratulations, what did you guys do elope/Vegas? You must have the fishing talk with her as soon as possible. Good to see you chime in King...

The Ice show should be bigger this year and the more people that show means more venders and more venders means more deals. That's how it works! If you guys know of any other local businesses being there feel free to add to the post. We look forward to the ice show in Syracuse for years to come!

King - I am sure the fishing part was in your pre-nuptial agreement Tim. grin I know it was a part of mine... well maybe not on paper but she was clear about my softball and fishing hobbies.. She fishes with you, that's great and better in limited quantities laugh! Sometimes you just gotta let them take there own fish off. grin Congrats to the newly weds! cool

Can't wait for the ice show. I wish Shappell would attend. I want to check out that Rover 1.5 real bad, can't recall if they had many Shappell's at the show last year or not, Jay?

    • Mileage can be relative.....my last wheeler had 10,000+ miles on it and I sold it to a friend. He is still riding it with over 13,000. Since that time I have put over 6000 on my current one. I was going to update this year but decided against it since they are so hard to come by right now. (and I still love this one)  I am admittedly a diehard Honda owner and have never and likely wouldn’t shop for anything else. I’ve had 13 different ATVs in the 44 years I’ve owned them and to this day not one has ever had a warranty visit. I think that speaks volumes.  I don’t baby my machine, it’s seen it’s share of mud 😉 but I maintain it well. I’d have no hesitation to take it anywhere, or sell it to a friend. Rundrave gave you some good sound advice for shopping, but don’t let mileage be your main determining factor. Well-maintained is better than low miles in many cases.  I do repairs on ATVs for friends, relatives etc, and aside from general appearance , the main things that I’d watch for on older machines is loose or noisy wheel bearings, brakes that don’t work well or drag, cv axles and boots and seals. Look at fluids, especially front and rear differentials, engine oil and antifreeze if it’s a liquid cooled machine. As far as tires, meh, I personally pulled off my new stock ones and replaced them before it had even been out of the garage, so the stock ones are like brand new. People replace them for all sorts of reasons including where they ride and what they use it for. 
    • Its hard to say, 1k miles in mud and beaten on could be worse than a well maintained machine with 5k that saw easy use.   I always look at the seat,  the exhaust pipe and tires. If the seat is worn, has holes etc it been ridden hard. If you can still read the logo and it doesn't have any rips or tears that says a lot.  If the exhaust header pipe and muffler is rusty its seen a lot of mud and water. If the tires are not OEM it had the original tires worn off. What did they replace them with and why? If they replaced it with big mud tires they rode in mud etc. Talk to the owner, make sure they kept up on maintenance. You will get a good feel for how it was used. Old man that just checked fields and livestock but high miles or young guy that mud rode with his buddies etc.   For under $5k I would just suggest looking for a machine  with EFI thats shaft drive . Carbs are great and most have pull start as a back up but I would have a hard time trusting an old carb unless your not afraid to dive into one yourself. Stay away from anything with chains and sprockets. They were unreliable and I wouldn't buy a one new off the showroom floor.
    • Under 5K. Looking at the list of Craig, that puts me in late 90's early 2000's machine for the most part with a few newer in that range.    What is considered high miles for an ATV? Most I see are in the 2000 range. 
    • what's your budget?   any of the newer machines in the last 10yrs will be reliable regardless of brand. get power steering if you can swing it    I am actually shopping hard right now myself. Looking to spend $5k to $7500 but prices are crazy right now. If I go any higher I might as well get a SxS. New prices are ridiculous for both.    I am just looking for that low mileage machine that someone never used and wants to get rid of. They are out there someone just keeps gets to them before I do.
    • I've never owned an ATV and ridden very few. I am looking to get a used machine for my hunting property. It will be mainly used for food plot creation and maintenance as well as some snow plowing. Any recommendations or things to look for?
    • shut down facebook      I miss the glory days on here and seeing these builds 
    • I did exactly the same thing, those pictures are invaluable. Mine starts with the bare trailer the day I brought it home. Man, that was a lot of work hours ago.  What needs to be done to get people back on HSO? 
    • What he said ^^^^^^^   I created a "build book" that I keep in the fish house. It is fun to look back and reminisce on the building of the shack when fishing is slow. I took measurements of the main runs before spray foaming and wrote them in. I is also easy to count the number of pine boards each run is up on the inside..... One of the other benefits of finishing from the inside to the outside!          
    • How tough is it to get drawn for wi? A few buddies would try for the first 2 seasons and we have an uncles farm to hunt on so property isn’t an issue. 
    • Your state's farm credit agency.  They cannot be beat because they operate under coop rules with federal protections.
