    Currently Looking!!

    Hey All,
    Just joined after searching the forum, seems like there's a ton of good info & knowledgeable folks out there! I did some research but couldn't find a recent thread for my question. Basically, looking to get into a SxS or ATV now that I own some land with a couple buddies, for use on our land and the local trail systems around us. Upstate NY for reference. I own sleds, bikes & jet ski's so not new to owning a powersports toy or buying, maintenance, use ect... Trying to pinpoint how much more maintenance & work is involved with a SxS compared to an ATV. I'm assuming more, but not sure how much more. I'm sure a lot depends on how much you beat on the equipment. But with more parts and the machine being larger I'm assuming a SxS is more work, and thus more expensive to maintain. Any thoughts? If it helps, realistically I'm looking at Polaris RZR 800's (to stay legal in NY trail systems) on the SxS side and Honda, Yamaha or Polaris ATV's probably a max of 500/570 on the ATV side. Using it, mainly riding around the land, mudding and use on the trail systems (most are dirt roads and gravel or rocky trails). No rock climbing, crazy mudding or anything extreme. Will be buying one that's unmolested as well. Thanks all!
