Yeah, the power thing isn't a huge factor as we won't be going in places that require a lot. 4x4 is a must for that "just in case" situation that I'm sure I'LL get into. I don't like the look of the sporty atv's as much as I like the utility style. We're not a "balls to the wall' rider, but we do like the occasinonal burst of speed for a little fun. We like the adventure more than anything. That's why I liked the grizzly so much, but I've heard since it has the power steering that is just another gadget that could go wrong with it. I guess I just want to be sure whatever we end up getting will be reliable, easy to maintain, and fun. I was watching some video's of people out on their atv's and they had the whole rear exhaust under water. Couldn't understand how it kept running under water. We won't be doing anything extreme like that. Mainly trails that have trees, dirt, semi-shallow mud and of course the river bed crossings. At least for a while until I get cocky and try something that I'll regret! LOL. Do you recommend any necessary accessories at the time of purchase. I've heard that they all need snorkle boxes put on them, but ours that we rode didn't. Just the bottom plates, which I would assume all atv's have. We will both take the training course when we purchase, that's just for my peace of mind. As far as the trailer goes, never thought about a side loading trailer. Would a 6' wide trailer be wide enough to put one sideways? I was thinking of a 6x8 trailer should be big enough. Thanks for the reply! Yes her smile made it all that much more enjoyable!
