Greetings all from a finally rainy WA,

This weekend I pulled the trigger on a 2017, Yamaha Grizzly with EPS.

I have been doing a lot of research and test drove a lot of them. The criteria I had where;

  1. Is a good hybrid utility/fun
  2. Can snow plow
  3. Can be serviced in Alaska (hoping to move there soon)
  4. Is reliable
  5. Has good power.
My initial choice was a Honda foreman. But after test driving that one I was really not that impressed with it's handling and it's bare setup for a premium price. I test drove a CanAm outlander but for whatever reason that one did not click and it would fail some of my criteria list.

I ended up test driving a Yamaha and loving it. The deal was very good and Yamaha gave me a provantage winch to sweeten the deal.

It has no toys attached to it (yet) but here is the monster.

Welcome to GC and congrats on the Griz. Now, lets see if we can dent that bank account a little more... What's on the mods list? Tires and wheels perhaps? Skids maybe? In Alaska you'll definitely need some heated grips and thumb warmer. We can help with all of this and we love to spend other people's money!!

Welcome to GC from Maine. I would say you made a good choice. My oldest brother moved to Alaska back in 1993. I've been up quite a few times. Love it. I would retire there if the wife would agree!

Get moved to Alaska and post pics before these people spend all of your money, and Welcome, you made a good choice.
