Newt from Idaho..kinda

Greetings all! New guy here from SE Idaho but I work in Iraq. Looking for a SXS and since I own a 05 Brute Force 750 I figured it best to look at another Kawi. Trying to get to different sites is rather tough because we have filters on our computers preventing us from looking at vehicle related sites except in our rooms when the internet is up.

But I've been looking at the new Can-Am Commander and Polaris Ranger as a comparison. THe Popo makes me a bit concerned about their reliability and the Can-Am specs out pretty well but being new, I wonder what the long term results will bring. I've read where people say it needs power steering to be more controllable by their better half and the clutch is rather jerky. I'm wanting a SXS so my gal can pilot it by herself and I want something that she can enjoy and not be afraid of. If I need to add EPS then I reckon I'll go that way. I guess my other main concern is now that Can-Am has brought yet another bigger engine into the mix, Kawi will follow suit...right after I buy a 2010. As usual, we can all try to second guess events and we'll never get anywhere.

I get long winded a lot so I'll close for now. Just wanted to say hi and look through what you all have encountered in your research and experience.
Cheers and thanks

New owner

Thank you for the welcome Doug. Cool that you have an 05 BF750.

Hey crazy stuff happened since I posted my initial post. I go to ATVtrader all the time looking for either a black 2010 base model or a 2010 Super Black Sport. So what I've been finding is low prices but then they want to tack on big bucks for their shipping costs and document fees. That's normal and I can understand where the dealer is coming from. Well I called this place in Minnesota and other than the low price for the black base model, all they wanted was $75 doc fees. He said he could have it shipped from Mn to Idaho for $450 plus I'll have to pay my state tax when it gets to my residence.

So I bought me a 2010 super Black base model for far less than I've been finding other places. I was shocked and I sure hope it doesn't come to bite me in the rear but at this point I'm very happy. Could have debated other brands and aspects until I was blue in the face but it was the color and unit I wanted at a price that fit my plan.

I be a Teryx owner now.
