Honda at high altitude climbing
Just got back from Colorado Elk hunt. Had the Honda at 7500 to 10000 ft. elevation. Loaded with 4 people and hunting gear. No problems climbing. Climbed some very nasty hills. One hill at 40% grade we didn't climb. We did go about 2/3 of the way up it and had about 20 yards to go to make it. Might have gotten up it with a better run, but thought best as it was too steep to be on with an OHV. Others had flipped their ATVs over backwards on this hill according to the DOW guy.
While a lower gear could help the Honda climb steeper. I wont be going anywhere that this Honda cant climb at high altitude.
The Honda rides great on the rocks, ruts and bumps. Especially like the downhill descent control with the automatic.
