I take my dog out every day to get exercise.Usually spend a hour everyday doing this.Right now I'am not getting any tractor seat time but at least I'am able to get Honda seat time. I have a good network of bush trails that I keep open. I mow them in the summer grass /brush and groom them in the winter. It's something to do in the winter. She [my dog] looks forward to our daily excursions, some how she always manages to find some squirrels to chase up a tree. I enjoy the rides as well and being in the heated cab sure is nice.

Hard to tell if you or the dog was having the most fun!

That is a dandy side X side.

  Taking the dog for a run is good fun. We have miles and miles of back roads here. All I have to do is ask her if she wants to go for a run and she finds the golf cart and waits to go. Something relaxing about watching the dog have fun. 

Thanks for the photos.

Guess the DOG gets proper exercise but not the old Dude in the vehicle then??  If you aren't really hooked up to dog, why can't he just run by himself?

Do you like you p700?

I test drove one because I liked the price but after a 10 minute test ride I decided to pass. Did not like the 3 speed, power, or suspension.

I think it would be awesome for farm use.

Your right on me needing more exercise,I'am afraid if I tried to run with her I'd need to be towed home. She does run free but she stays in the yard. It's when I grab the key's she's up and instantly ready to run. She just love's getting out for these runs.If we don't get out every day she's missing something [gotta stick to the routine]

I bought mine because of having 2 Polaris before and got absolutely fed up with the constant repairs and break downs.I still have one Polaris mid size but it time with me is limited. So far this Honda has been great. So great in fact that I don't feel like I need to be worried about not making it home. That in itself means lots to me. I'd rather have reliabilty then speed and lots of break downs. I did add a home made lift on front and back [spring spacers] to get rid of the bottoming out especially in the front.Bigger and more aggresive tire's . As for speed and power I'am fine with what it does. It is a utility machine and was built for that purpose.However we use it for trail riding and have no problems. Top speed is 45 mph so plenty fast for me,we usually cruise 30 mph down the back roads.

I wanted more utility but not quite that much. I agree Honda's are very reliable. We have 2 honda quads right now

I had a 2010 rzr and put 2000 miles on it. Never broke down once. I did grease the crap out of all the bushings. Change the oil and air filter often.

My next sxs will be a ranger 900. My buddy has one and I love it. I would of bought one next spring but since buying the new truck it'll wait till awhile.

Mainitoba eh? I recently had your  Mainitoba red potatoes, they were fantastic! I have no way to get them to the US. Those were the absolute BEST fries I've ever had.
