New Toy

 I bought this used 4-wheeler a week ago.  I figure I'll get a lot of use out of it on my place UP on the Tundra.  I have a little trailer (bed size 3 1/2ft by 4ft) that I can pull behind it once I get a ball set-up.

It's a '06 or '07 Polaris, will find out when I get the title.
                   The only problem with it is there isn't a clear title for it.  The guy(a DNR officer) I bought it from was warning me about my check that it was a felony to write a bad check for over $100.  What is the penalty for selling something you don't have clear title for????  He had bought it from a dealer who had taken it in on trade.  Turns out the lien from Wisconsin had never been cleared and is still showing up when entering it in the database.                    

It has new tires, brakes and battery, so should be good to go for quite awhile.

Looking forward to using it to go ice fishing next winter.  The snow on the ice usually isn't too deep for a 4-wheeler.  Lots of guys use them instead of snowmobiles.

Fits in the box between the toolbox and tailgate.  It's good to have a full-size truck.
 Now I need to get a set of ramps to load and unload it from my truck.  I was able to unload it when I got it home by backing up to a small bank and driving off.  Could pull it off on level ground, but it would be a real bitch to load it back up.

UPDATE: Added another picture.

  1. That's nice looking bro. Four-wheelers are a major means of transportation in the Alaska bush. If you haven't ridden before be careful until you actually get some miles under your belt - they can be tricky at speeds.
