If you are going to do a lot of trail riding, I would stay away from a solid axle and go with indep. suspension, rides a lot better in my opinion.

They are more comfortable...but not more fun.

I'm a Honda guy, but you can't go wrong with Kawasaki, Yamaha or Suzuki either. Tell the sales person to let you ride it in the parking lot and go with what feels rite to you. I'm not a fan of the belt driven bikes. Whatever you do don't buy a Polaris.

I have a 2005 Arctic Cat and I love it. it's one of the smaller full sized ones. it's a 300 4x4, but it has 3 ranges, high/low/super low, and 5 gears in each range with a clutch-less manual transmission, tons and tons of power, and it'll go for days on a tank of fuel

I drove both and the Honda just seems like the best buy. And I want 2 of the same thing so guess it'll be the Rincons. I cant wait to ride the trails this summer!
