I am glad you are haveing good luck with yours. Mine was fine for the first couple months I had it. I like to mud ride though, and after taking the bike in to a mechanic, was told that there are too many weak parts in this quad. As far as it keeping up with the can am. He was being kind. Once again, I have one of these, and mine would not out run a 350 honda rancher. I raced one on a ride. And please don't give me the rider error or inexperienced rider thing. Since i bought a polaris, everything has been great. I now ride my quad more than work on it. Once again, I am glad you had good luck with yours. But there are only 2 people in my area of Louisiana , that I know of, that own one of these. And we both have had nothing but bad dealings with this thing. There was only one dealership near me for these, which by the way was doing fine untill taking on the TGB line. 6 months after taking the line on, had to shut his doors. I know this guy, and it was due to the TGB quad and the hassle it is to get parts. And that is IF they can't find a way to not honor the warranty. Trust me on this one, they dig for anything. This is my 2 cents comeing from my own experience as well as from what the other owner has told me about his.
