Hey folks need your personal experience here.
I am seriously in the market for an ATV. I have ridden the Polaris and have eliminated it from the running based on experience with it. I am down to the Honda or the Yammie. My uses will include dog training (duh!), hunting waterfowl and upland birds, as well as deer.
1) 450 vs 500 is it worth the $'s for the extra CC's
2) auto vs manual
3) shift on the fly 4x4 or fulltime 4x4
4) what fits in the back of your std bed pick up (tailgate closed) and how do you get it back there (type of ramps)
I have not, as of yet, ridden either bike and have narrowed the brands down based on internet research on this forum and the fuge (previous threads). I am not locked in to any brand yet.
Thanks for your help
