I guess you had to be there, but I got a kick out of this. My brother in law is a great guy, we have a lot of fun. He's a very cautious sort. He has a Honda Foreman 450, no power steering, no windshield, electric shift that doesn't work very well, but it runs good and is a solid machine. Anyway, he went on our long ride a week ago Sunday and said that he thought I was going "really fast" at about 40 mph on some of the smooth sections of trail, LOL! Then just this past Sunday, just him and I went for a short ride and some lunch. I had him drive my Grizz for a bit. I got laughing because as soon as he got going on my Grizz, he left me in the dust! I pushed the Honda up to nearly 40 and he was still leaving me. That was as fast as I wanted to go on that one, it feels small and twitchy. He pulled over after a few miles and said " wow, no wonder it's so easy for you to go so fast, this is nice!!". Like I said, you had to be there, but he cracked me up!

Makes a big difference for sure. My brother rode a Foreman 500 for years behind me and always complained about getting "beat to death" keeping up with me. Finally talked him into a Grizz and now I'm trying to keep up with him.

Yep. It was a night and day difference going from an '07 SRA Rubicon to a '10 Grizzly. That Rubi beat me to death in the rocks!!
