Did you already sell your Prowler or are you trading it in on the Maverick? Are you going with the 4 seater?

2 words....holy shit!!!this things a freaking monster, pulls hard all the way to 79 mph, take 2 foot deep whoops at 50, has 2 modes for driving, sport mode and regular, regular mode smooth out the throttle input and changes timing a little, sport mode is balls to the wall but kinda twitchy in the rocks. put 72 miles on it this morning in 4 hours, no funny noises, no parking brake to worry about holding, fox 2.0 suspension took everything i could throw at it. now i just need to make a top for it, extend the cage in the back for a small jump seat for when my son isnt riding his quad, and put on a half windshield. holds 10 gallons of fuel and by the end of the ride it was only down two notches from full. weird thing is is that its the only sxs with catalyst, but this thing is dialed in from the factory. i dont have one negative thing to say about it so far....

yeah the prowler is long gone. no offense to anyone else with prowlers but i was glad to drive away from it and know it wasnt mine anymore, too many headaches and time spent in the garage instead of riding, granted they all have theyre problems but so far can am has had a recall on all the problems that people have been having and they were already taken care of on my unit when i bought it.
