I had it out at camp on the weekend but decided to bring it back to town. Since I only had one appointment this afternoon which got rescheduled I figured might as well take her out for a spin exploring new territory. At one point I was on the pipeline right of way crossing from one side to the other and got hung up on a stump. Good excuse to try the winch. It worked great. I am going to have to remove the back fender skirts though as they stick out past the tires and get caught when loading or unloading on the trailer. Otherwise she's a tight squeeze up the ramp but she fits.

Looks GREAT!

I'm surprised it didn't attract more dirt.

Usually on return from the maiden voyage a utv has so much mud on it you can't tell the original color!

Lmao. It's been pretty dry here and where I went was higher elevation with rocky terrain. Plus I didn't want to get stuck while out alone with no cell service. This weekend is the opening of bird hunting up here. I plan on being out in the bush with it quite a bit. She has more than enough power for what I plan on using it for. Supposed to top off at around 55mph. I'll find out eventually.

I got the windshield and roof installed today. No pictures yet. The dealer said he just got back from a preview of upcoming models they are working on. Apparently their line up is expanding to compete with the bigger 1000cc machines arctic cat bombadier and Polaris put out. Anxious to see what they put out.

Your new machine is awesome. Looking forward to some pictures of your adventures. Maybe you can make Moab a stop on your next RV trip.

Thanks. I'm loving it. Yours looks cool too. Two different beasts though. I need mine for slow hunting down side roads and around camp. It's a sweet setup. I may even install a little stereo system I have sitting in the garage originally intended for my old goldwing.

Nice. I used to do moose hunting years ago but gave that up due to the crooked draw system we have up here. Now it's just grouse hunting mainly. Any excuse to get out in the bush. Driving 40+ year old roads all grown in.

Went out bird hunting today but ended up just putting on a few miles on the moto. All good

I'll be taking the moto out on Friday for a special ride. Our two oldest boys are in scouts and will be hiking in 3km over a trail with their troop to a weekend camp. Each scout is responsible to carry their own pack on the trail. I'm going with a friend to haul in the tents and other miscellaneous supplies they need. We'll have the moto and his Polaris sportsman 500 hauling a small trailer I have out at camp.

As I said, I went out to help with our kids scout troop last night hauling in gear and supplies over a 4 mile trail. It was slow going. For the first mile the trail was wide. Then it got grown in and swampy in sections. I hauled my small utility trailer behind the moto. At the end of the trail there was a steep winding section. There were a few spots grown in that required a chainsaw.

With record breaking highs today and no appointments, I decided to text a friend at 6am to go hunting. We headed out to a road I'd never been to. It was a great afternoon in the bush. We even got a couple birds.

I may look into tracks for it next year. I grew up snowmobiling all the time. I also spent 17 years volunteering running the trail groomer for the snow club. This might be a good way to get me back out there enjoying the snow.

Loving the cfmoto so far. Only thing I have to complain about is the loud exhaust. My buddy at camp has a ranger 570 that's way quieter. So I ordered a kolpin universal exhaust silencer to put on. It's supposed to reduce the sound emissions by 50%. We'll see.

Got the exhaust silencer in. I still have to install it but it looks well built and comes with different adapters for different exhaust sizes.

I can't believe how I ever survived without a side by side. It'll go pretty much everywhere my Polaris 700 will go plus do much more. At camp, I'm using it for more than just cruising around. This week alone, I've hauled firewood, hauled the flatdeck trailer to move a shed, then minutes later had a kayak strapped on to head down to the beach as well as hauling all the towels pool noodles lifejackets etc. It may only be a 500 but for camp it's perfect.
