rah466 here from Western Montana. I'm a semi-retired cattle rancher. Getting a little older, sold my Harley and Yamaha dirt bike,so now I'm on four wheels. Just purchased a 2013 Prowler 700 HDX in green. I'm a little cautious on the hills but getting bolder by the day. Not real sure what these machines are capable of. The book states no slope over 15 deg. Hah, I've already been on over 25 deg. and that seems plenty tame. This looks like a great forum and I'm sure i'll learn a lot from you folks.
