Had a good time and saw some beautiful country at the rzr rally. I traded my rzr 800 in on a honda pioneer 4 one week before the rally and was a little nervous about taking it on this trip but glad i did. We had a group of 4 rzr 800s, one 660 yamaha grizzly and my pioneer. We rode everything from ride open county roads to tight twisty forest trails with river crossings and rock climbs. On the county roads the rzrs would eventually pull away from me and i caught a little crap because this is where we started the ride and they wanted to show me the honda could not keep up. From there we hit the trails and same thing, they tried to leave me!! I could see them keep looking in their rearview mirrors throughout the trails as we picked up the pace and i was still there. We came to a pretty nasty looking hill climb with some big rocks and very ruted out areas and this is where i was suprised. The rzrs will climb anything you put in front of them and everyone, including me thougt this is where i would have to retreat. Up the hill i go nervous as **** but up and over right with the rzrs. We came to consecutive river crossings that were pretty deep and this is where i got the laugh. By the second crossing all four rzrs belts where sliping and had to stop and try to let dry. From that point on every time they crossed water they could not climb a hill because belts where sliping. We get back to camp and they start in on how big and ugly the pioneer is and that it looks like a safari ride. I asked why are you making fun of they way it looks and one guy said because he is pissed because it went every where we did and he thinks he burnt up his belt trying to leave you. The pioneer did eveything i asked it to do on the trails including carry wood for camp fire. I was very happy to see how fast this thing could run the trails and how comfortable it was, only complaint is the gas petal is at a weird angle and foot got tired. Very pleased.
