Just a suggestion but if you want the power with the ride check out the following: Polaris 850XP (good power and most comfortable), Kawasaki Brute Force 750 (unreal torque but a little stiff on the ride, steering is a little heavy), or the Can Am Renegade 800 or Outlander 800 (more power than you'll need, new models have EPS, and comfort would be rated right behind the Polaris models)

The sportsman has more torque and is faster than the 650 brute force. It will not beat a 800 renagade or a outlander in a drag but will over take it in the bumps and corners(outlander). I've never ran mine against a renegade and an sure the sportsman would not fair well.Too much weight difference. If I had 10,000 to blow on a new machine it would be the renegade and keep the polaris. The sportsman is a work horse and the reny is a toy with no work capabilities. The xp doesnt feel as strong as the sportsman but sqeeks by in a drag. Dollar for dollar the sportsman is the best bet!Good luck!

Goggle Berts Mega Mall. They are out of CA but ship you the bike in a crate. All you have to do is air up the tires and put gas in it and our ready to go. Buddy just bought a Brute from them. They buy up all the leftovers from dealers and sell them off fairly cheap. Thats where my next bike will come from.

My buddy paid $12,156.45 out the door for a 2008 Yamaha Raptor 700R SE with factory installed heated grips, and nerf bars. He also bought it in August 2009 (so it was a leftover?). The US vs. CAN prices pisses me off.
