Are there still numerous clubs out there, overkill? I know back when I was atving, there was talk of doing something similar with the trail system in Ontario but due to the amount of clubs and their unwillingness to join or not be the big club themselves, nothing ever came of it.

In order to succeed they needed to be more like the OFSC but it's been years since I have been involved. Is the EOTA still around? I know they were the ones who maintained the trails down near our trailer in Marmora. Also the Haliburton club comes to mind and I know there were quite a few others out there as well.


Honestly, I have no idea. I ride with friends, mostly hunting camp stuff and farm land, so we don't interact with any clubs shrug

We have been riding Polaris ATVs for at least 25 years now. Can't say we have ever had any lemons. They have always been dependable machines and we ride some pretty rough terrain.

We used to head north and go and ride around the little town of Ompah. Awesome area for ATVs!

IMO the Suzuki King Quad 400 is an often overlooked jewel. A trail riders dream for the money.

I have a 2014 Honda Rancher 4x4 which has been a great ATV with no issues. My fiancee has a 2005 Honda Rancher 400 AT that has been rode hard and wrecked twice and it's not had any issues either. Her 16 year old son has a 2005 Honda TRX 250 EX that has been beat on and the engine is bullet proof. It did need a new clutch recently though.

Her 23 year old has a 2015 Polaris 900 Razr and has had a lot of things go wrong with it but he is pretty rough on it. He was rough on her 2005 Rancher too but it's survived better than his Razr has.

I got this Arctic Cat VLX 700 a few months ago. At right around $6,000 for a 700 4x4 ATV, I think this is probably the best value out there right now. This was actually a leftover 2017 model that the dealer had marked down to $4999. I've put this thing through its paces and gone through more challenging terrain than the average ATV owner ever does, and I love this machine so far.

Those Arctic Cats are great machines also! Find a Textron dealer since they recently bought AC.

I hear you, but they have been legally banned as far as I know. You can still make your own using a dirt bike front end.

I have a Can Am Outlander 800 EFI Max XT. Big 2-seater with extended wheelbase. I'm in love. Has way more than enough balls for whatever you might encounter. Hasn't given me any issues, but it came to me already modded with a bunch of heavy duty parts. We see mostly mud here in FL, and it has proven to be perfect for that. With straight mud, it is all about horsepower. Rides like a dream. Girlfriend has no complaints about the ride or anything for that matter. Sometimes I use it to move my boat on the trailer around.

The suspension is a work of some serious science. I've done a lot of things that made me think I was going to flip over or roll, only to find that it was not even close to its limit. Seems impossible to really upset it.

It's ugly, but only because PO covered it in ugly plasti-dip. I'm currently working on replacing the body panels.

Did a similar analysis this exact time last year...came to the conclusion that the Can-Am Outlander was the bike for me. It has lived a good hard first year of life, and I love it! I would buy it again in a heartbeat if faced with the decision again today.

Sounds like you have the same machine as my buddy on here slammds15. I was super impressed with his and that's why I bought mine. They are great machines thumbsup
