    Here's some pics of my new 2006 Kawasaki 4x4 360 ATV with 2500 lb. Warn winch, 54" Cycle Country snowplow and rear tire chains (not on it in the pics). I bought it a 2 weeks ago, but hadn't had a chance to put up the pics on lawnsite. I'll use it for plowing my accounts in the winter (pushes 6" of heavy, wet snow like it's not even there), I'll pull my trailer with it in the summer, and of course I'll use it to go mudding upstate :cool: ! What do you think?

    I had that same plow on my Suzuki vinson 500. I guess it worked good, we never got any substantial snow after I bought it and then I sold the whole rig the next fall.

    I kinda miss my 4 wheeler, not sure which one though... I liked the 4x4 but it was as big as an import car and kinda dangerous to ride when there's a lot of whoops to go over and a lot of twists and turns in trails. Just so heavy I sure wouldn't want to be under it in an accident if you know what I mean! I also had a Yamaha Raptor 660, that was certainly fun to ride but it was tiring fast. After a good accident where I went face first into the ground and pulled about every muscle in my back and legs (got ran over too) I realized that going out and having a little fun wasn't worth losing my business over! What if I broke something? (besides my nose) If I put myself out of commission cause of some toy I would have been screwed!

    Ok, I owned a helmet, but of course It was in the back of the truck. Just one of those "go out for a minute and then come back" rides. Live and learn....

    Moral is: Be safe! Not sure how much you are going to use that for pleasure riding, but if you do ANY have a helmet! Also keep alcohol out of the equation too! Beer = bravery = accidents! (yes I see that you are 15, but that never stopped most guys I knew from drinking!)

    I dont think the towing is a good idea...my mom has a prarie 300 and i towed a trailer behind it and only did it MAYBE 3 times before the transmition went out and it was a RIDICULOUS amount to pay...i do like Kawasaki though we have 3 and we love em....you gotta get some mud on that thing man

    That looks nice bro... how much of it could you write off in your taxes?

    One of neighbors has a older F-250 with like a 16 inch lift kit and huge tires and he went to pick up his new quad from the dealership. he put the ramps on the tailgate and starterd to pull up them into th back of the truck and it was soo steep the quad flipped and he dove off and he like shattered the gas tank and snaped the handle bars off. It was brand new and this was in the parking lot of the dealership...
