They asked my to introduce myself so here goes

I'm from Indiana and a first time buyer of any type of UTV. I raced motorcycles and drove USAC sprint cars a long, a long time ago. I am old but still faster then a speeding bullet. I don't bounce like I use to but I puddle up pretty good. I type fast and don't care about spelling errors, if you don't make fun of mine I will not comment about yours either.
I like to modify all my toys and this Teryx will be treated the same.
I just hope I get along OK with the clutch on this Teryx, I hear you have to adjust them often. I looked at some of the video about this and it seems a real pain to do.
I will do the most of my riding in the hills of eastern Ky. If you see me give me a wave and a shout.--Larry

Hey Larry you sound alot like myself I also raced Atvs(3 wheelers) in my younger years, just always was facinated by anything that would go fast and always wanted to make it go faster but have had a problem accepting the fact that I am not a spring chicken any more so thats why I decided in 2006 to buy a Rhino when I rode one and realized that it was a lot more sporty than the old mules I had been around and the rest is history bought a Teryx in 2009, beware this is the most addicting hobby I ever had but what the heck we only live once, Welcome to the site you will love it.

Thank you all for the welcome!! About being a cash cow you are correct. Lets see bought it and took it home
Ordered new 14 wheels and new tires about $900.00
New windshield about $350.00
Can't stop thinking about the MSD abut $450.00 programmed
Just can not live without the milled sheave, new belt, stronger clutch springs, and plate. Don't have an idea what that cost.
Will have to get the 840 upgrade this winter
New Muzzy

and only have 10 miles on it so far.
