New Addition to the family

After the last trail ride we got so beaten up in the Prowler (even with the suspension seats and XTZ shocks) that I said that's enough. I bought this 2016 RZR 900 XC yesterday. It has the 900 S suspension, with a 55 inch width. It rides really nice and is super clean. Denise loves it. Now, the fun begins. Ordering windshied, rear window, lower door halves today. The Prowler? Its staying put for street driving and plowing. I can't sell it, I'll never get the $ out of it that I have in it. Plus, I've done so much to it, I can't do think of doing anything else to it. New project time!

72 mph today! This thing is a riot! QUIET! Wow! At 65 I can talk to the passenger. At 72 she's screaming at me. Not that we can't hear, she just didn't like the 72 mph thing! But I did!

except they are very squirlly at that speed for many reasons , wheel base length being high on the list , very low tire pressure being another , hard road surface if on pavement or hard pack dirt another ... at least in the Prowler it is , maybe the PoPo isn't do to weight disto and center of gravity.

when I foolishly take mine up there I say " self what are you showing off for , your buds are to far behind you to gloat" LOL
