    Took some pics of my new quad today, an '07 Honda Foreman 500 ES 4X4. I bought it from the dealer with a Cycle Country 52" plow with power angle and manual lift. Sorry no pics with the plow on the quad, but due to the manufacturer giving me a plastic pulley to lift the blade (it broke the first time I lifted the blade) and a floating strap that doesn't hold, the plow remains on the dolley. Need to make a trip to Home Depot for a nice zinc pulley. Enjoy the pics!

    Wicked nice, but it is way too clean. Mine only managed to stay clean for 18 hours. After that I was in a mud pit.

    Yeah really. When I got my outlander it was red, a hour later it was muddy and has never been totally red since.

    Thats a damn nice quad.

    Thanks guys. I haven't had a chance to ride it yet, hopefully sooner than later. Trust me, after I go out, it won't be clean at all.

    No winch on this one. I had a winch on my Grizzly and it was more of a pain than it was worth. The cable was always binding up, the switch didn't work half the time, and if the front was under water or in mud, it was really hard to get to the winch to get yourself out. As far as the price, I lucked out because the dealer was having a sale on all machines. The price was $5800 and I know the salesman so I got a good deal on it.
