    My other hobby...

    This is where the majority of my recreational funds go to...



    It's a 2007 Yamaha Rhino 450.
    Hardly anything is stock on it anymore.
    It has a 2" lift,and 28" tires,
    It has a 4" chopped cage,a bunch of custom blue powdercoating,and custom hydrodipped plastic.
    It also has a pretty nice stereo system in it.
    It's by no means a show machine...I beat on it pretty hard.

    When I feel I'd rather ride a 4 wheeler than the SXS...I ride this...



    It's a 2009 Honda Rancher 420AT
    It has independent rear suspension,an automatic trans,and power steering.
    It also has a 2" lift,and 26" tires.
    (this pic is before the lift was installed)

    Good choice in tires.
    I love my Zillas (28x11-14 on all 4 corners of the Rhino) and am considering getting a set for the Rancher.

    Sweet Banshee Dude.

    I'm wanting another sport quad just to blast around on...but nothing like that. I have nowhere around here to ride a machine set up for the dunes like that.
    I'm wanting a TRX450R.

    After I learn to ride a manual, never rode one, but I can drive a stick.. I wouldn't mind a WR250R to start out with and to ride off-road. Then my dream bike would be GSXR 750
    Oh we have a Polaris sportsman 700 twin 4x4. Independent suspension, all stock I think. In yellow too

    Here's my fun. A '06 honda rancher 420. Small enough to have fun and jump but still a honda so I can do some hard work.

    Here's mine, 2011 850 XP EPS



    Dragging my 2000 700 Polaris Virage out of the lake, bought it new in 2001 and it only has 140 hrs on it.



    my kids on their quad



    My Dads 2006 Checkmate ZT219, I went to WI to get it and I am the one who has to make sure its in tip top condition for him, all Dad does is pay, lol



    Took me 2 weekend to put this lift together for him.



    This is my pride and joy right here, my 1989 Checkmate Eluder, I spent 2 years restoring it



    new interior done by me, spent many nights till 4 am in the garage on the weekends



    The two of them at the dock



    I have been a snowmobiler all my life till now, these were the last ones I had, wife's on the right, had to pick summer or winter toys ans summer won, as you can see I have always been a Polaris man.

    Im one of those crazy hoppy moto folk.

    2002 Gas Gas 280 pro. 280cc 2 stroke tuned for low torque and a wet weight of 141 pounds. Goes like stink. Its recently had some ( alot ) of TLC. I may have broken some bits in the shifter drum and bent the shifter forks a little.



    I also ride bicycle trials and do some DH and free ride stuff on the mountain bike.



    I wish I had the funds to put a little money into my pickup. It would get a few pounds of boost and some new pin striping to make the 26 year old factory paint look show room fresh again.

    Awesome! I have the same other hobby. Got a Grizz 660 lifted, 28's, snorks, rad relocate, exhaust, and clutched. Also have a Polaris 400 2 stroke to go fast on. I will be adding a SXS as soon as I am back in the states in a few years.

    Hey pavmentsurfer...do you have any affiliation with Can-Am?
    If so...might hit you up with some questions.
    I don't have a Can-Am...but am interested in a few factory "parts" for my Rhino if you might know a source where i can get them cheap.(no...not a Rotax conversion...though that would be cool).

    I own and host an ATV and Snowmobile Television show broadcast all across North America on the Outdoor Channel. In the spring/summer/fall we test ATVs and in the winter we test snowmobiles.

    The shot of the Maverick was from the official press release event outside Vegas this past summer. The rest of the pics are in the backyard of my office.

    Here's a question I've ALWAYS wanted answered. In the fancy garage place where you bolt on all of the wheels, suspension kits, lights, winches, and whatnot.... how is it so clean in there!? I'm going to assume its more of a set used just for filming and not actually used as a shop but I'd still have a heck of a time keeping it that clean.
