Picking up a 2017 Prowler 500 tomorrow

I needed an inexpensive yet reliable easy to drive side by side for the kids so I figured a Prowler would be perfect. that way I can drive the RZR and they can follow me. I had to sell 2 ATVs because they wouldn't ride them after I got the RZR! 2 seats and 4 people just doesn't work that well!
We're taking both to Colorado for a week; leaving Friday, so the first miles on the rig will be in the mountains. Cant' wait!
