jump ship?

Reading a lot of people saying how great the new can am is. And it looks impressive. But where's the teryx loyalty? See a lot of gotta get and trading in. Best thing since slice bread. My teryx has been great. Mow the lawn. Haul wood and stone. Play. And makes a great pit vehicle at the dragstrip. Always be the next best thing and it will only lead to better, but show some love! Until proven other wise... the teryx is top dog......

I buy whatever the best, fastest, most reliable, priced right product that is out at the time. In powersports that changes all the time so I dont have a brand loyalty.

I've owned Yamaha and Honda Steet Bikes
Suzuki Quads
Kawasaki Teryx
John Deere Gator
Yamaha and Honda Generators

Depending on where the competition stacks up in a few years I may own my first Can-am. I've always liked there products.

I agree with you and only time will tell but even if I buy a Can Am it will be like I posted in the other post I don't like to buy first year model of anything let them work out the bugs and give time for suppliers to build after market products and until then my Teryx and Rhino will take care of me

Yea I got a call from out own XChamp on here when he seen them saying he was selling his 08' 840 and getting one. That's OK there has not been a Can-Am quad that even comes close to our Kawie motors until they turbo them so I'm not worried!

Well kawasaki could step it up a little bit in the ATV/UTV market... I mean they made the Teryx ugly as hell for 2010 with no real performance increase. Obviously they aren't going to get a fire lit under their ass until they start losing market share.

Although I'm not getting rid of my teryx anytime soon as I'm sure the can-am isn't faster than my 840 and I have a rzr if I want to long travel and still be able to ride through the woods. I'm not one to buy into the hype as I'm sure the motor on the bike is great but I really wouldn't go buy a stock suspension commander and expect the ride quality to be better than a RZR S...

Wish this would start a performance war and get kawasaki and yamaha back in the game but thats highly unlikely...

I say bring them on.. Im not scared. I would race a 1000 canam anyday. I bet who ever the Comander owner is at the time he will be shocked what this old Teryx will do Then if he is still not impressed with my old clunker then he can line up against Merlins Seriously , the Kawi v twin motor is impressive and the bike just can do so many things from work to play.. The Teryx is also one if not the most reliable bikes out there.. The same guys that are jumping now are the same ones that will be wishing they had waited when Honda releases there new sport UTV in November and will be available to the public in Febuary.
