Those guys are tools and never let the facts get in the way of a good story, but i support any high-quality ATV/SXS production. Can't wait to see it!

BTW, the show will be posted on Youtube about 1 week after it airs on TV, so next week anyone should be able to watch it.

I heard about their pioneer excursion. The guys on the yami forums are all upset they used two pioneers over Vikings LOL...

anyone catch the show live? how did they like the pioneers over an extended period?

They liked the pioneers very well. They said that it handled the large amount of gear they brought along very well with no drop off in performance. They were also surprised with how well they did when they got them out for a little spirited play time. AS for me I have been reading SNow Trax magazine for a couple of decades and found they were always one of the least biased publications in the snowmobile field. They do a much better job of reporting on dirt sxs or atvs than Fisher world does.

For the record, i wasn't intending to imply that they were biased...if that's how it was taken. They just sometimes come off as not really knowing much about the sport.

Ex. In a RZR 570 LE test, they stated that it was the 1st SxS with engine braking. They also were raving about the 50" width and implying that it was only 50" machine ever ( conveniently ignoring the 800 that preceded it by years ).

Then, not too long ago they "tested" the revised 2013 Grizzly 700. I wonder if they ever figured out that i was actually a 2014?

And countless other things like that...

I saw the pioneer test drive on dirt trax and then their adventure on pioneer4's on the most recent show. they seemed pretty well spot on from what I've read other places.
I like dirt trax tv, but agree sometimes they seem clueless, I caught the 2013/2014 grizzly mistake because I bought a 2014 grizzly specifically for the changes and could see people watching their test, buying a 2013 and then being disappointed because they thought it had the updates they were talking about.
I also laugh at the lingo they use sometimes in their tests. its like they're trying really hard to be hip and cool.....but as much as they make me laugh and seem clueless (at times) I still rarely miss a show. I wish their were more shows out there like this that highlighted great places to ride, tested atvs and side by sides and gave great tech tips.....on another note, I love to watch fishers, but he reminds me of a real live Ricky Bobby from Talladega Nights.

Guard guy I caught that too. I watched the episode and then went to YouTube and watched several more episodes. I think that their sponsors get in the way. I feel they are biased because of this. So I got an idea or brain fart oh! Same thing.

A few of us really intelligent old guys start a program where we travel to all areas where trail riding is possible. ( hehe intelligent) spend a few days taking in sites and trails and report on all the fun available to old guys and gals and young families. Sell the ad space to pay for air time but not Hawk the products, leave that to the product commercials.
I was left with this bad taste in my mouth that Polaris owns these cats and they don't really speak their minds. But I figure what we want to watch is the trail riding and campfire fellowship without all the hawking.
