Hey, I Bought a new toy yesterday. Its a brand new 05 honda rubicon. This thing is a beast. 500 cc with navigation. THis thing is awsome. You'll never get lost in the woods again.lol It has the 2wd/4wd button, electric shifting, automatic in high, normal, and low, (5 gears in each), liquid cooled, disc brakes. It basically has everything. I'll be buying a plow for it so i can get some use out of it in the winter time. But, as for now ill be driving it as much as i can up in the poconos... What do you think?

Nice ride, they're a lot of fun.
We've got 2 Yamaha 450 Kodiaks with the independent suspension......great for 4 wheeling in the woods.

Enjoy.

Sweet. Love how Honda shaped the ATV! How much did you pay for that?

Thanks Guys.. Yea... your right.. it is too nice to get dirty lol. I paid 7,000 out the door for it. The msrp is around 7500 but i got the whole package with tax, title, prep fee, and any other fee they could think of for 7. It'll be a pretty nice tax writeoff.

You Should Have Bought A Polaris Sportman With Independent Rear Suspension.

Im loyal to the name. I could have also went with the rincon.. that had 700 cc with independent suspension too. But, this is made more for work.

Yep, in the end, the rubicon was the best choice for my style. I remember your vote for the rubicon lol

Nice quad! Personally, I'd never buy a Honda after what happened to my friend and his rubicon, but to each his own! Have fun with it! Get a plow for it, and you're all set to plow this winter! Here's a pic of me going quadding last weekend at our 890 acre tree farm in Upstate, NY with my new 2006 Kawasaki 360 4x4 w/2500LB Warn Winch....lots of FUN!!! :cool2:

Yeah, it's an 890 acre farm, with 312 acres of trees (spruce, fraiser fir, balsam fir, and some nursery stock), the rest is woods, swamp, and a large pond. It's fun to have lots of different terrain to ride on! I broke my quad in for the first 60 miles (as the manual stated), then changed all the fluids, and then opened 'er up! What kind of plow are you getting? I have the 54" Cycle Country plow, used it for the second half of last winter (when I got my quad), and it works great! It is built really well, and isn't too heavy either. Have some fun on your new quad...but don't forget to make some serious $$$$ this winter too!:weightlifter:

Sounds like fun. Does it really need 60 miles to break in? i heard something like 10.. anyways, i'm looking to get a blackline plow. They look like their very nice and reliable. You don't need a winch, and it gives you 500lbs of downward pressure. Here is a link to the one i want to get. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/NEW-PLOWS-Snowplow-52-Blackline-ATV-UTV-Snow-Plow_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ43972QQihZ002QQitemZ4645024595QQrdZ1 I'm not sure as to get the 52'' or 60'' Most likley the 52'' because the 60 might be to big. What do you think of that plow?

Well, 60 miles equated to about 15 hours for me, just make sure you change all the oils after 15-20 hours...just follow your manual. That Blackline plow looks nice, the only comcern I'd have would be the weight on the front end of the atv when you have the plow raised..that plow looks really heavy. My Cycle Counrty plow weighs about 100 lbs +/-, I use my winch to raise and lower it, it works great! I'd say to go with the 52" if you're going Blackline, I have a 54", I think 60" is too big, especially if you're doing and sidewalks. I'd highly recommend Cycle Country plows, I've had great luck with mine so far!

The only problem with that is... i would have to buy a winch and a plow. With this plow it doesn't use one. If something goes wrong with the winch.. im screwed.. I'm going to have to check the weight on the plow..

It sayes on the websight that it weighs less than 100lbs and that it wont stress the suspension... I know it will prob stress the front suspension to some degree.. but if they say it weighs less than 100lbs.. ill take their word for it..
