I bought one with the same hesitation.  So far I have had no regrets.  I drive mine around town more than I drive in the hills.  I used it in Idaho last year and plan on taking it out in the washington hills this year.  I plow snow at the house and around the neighborhood.....multi purpose machines!!  My kids are learning to drive with it too which makes it easy and fun. 

Jreble, which one do you have?

Honda pioneer 1000-5.  It is wider than 50" so somewhat limited in Idaho.  With that being said, I am thinking of buying the honda 500 for smaller trails and to have two.  Then no one has to ride in the back.   :tup:

I was looking at the Honda pioneer 700-4. Hard to find used, everyone seems to hold onto them. Animal would go in the bed. Have yet to get an animal to jump in the bed of my truck, I’ve always had to pack them out and put them in the bed in pieces.

All the honda utvs have plenty of room for animals.  I had two deer in the back of my 1000 last year and they fit great....with all my gear.   :tup:

I would strongly consider a 50".  For access, Idaho for example.  I believe Wa will have similar laws in place in the future.  If for Farm n work then no, or play, no. I downsized to a 50".  Check out the Teryx 60" if a combo use is needed.  Honestly I think its tougher and more reliable than the Hondas and priced better with a better warranty cause you wont need to use it probably.

I did the kit to make my ATV street legal got plates, paid extra and when I was up near Winthrop told I couldnt use it in NF.
I agree if you use a licensed street legal ATV/UTV on the FR it should be no different than a truck, but more economical.
Its the bad apples that go off road that screw it up for the rest, I think
watch for small signage saying NO, easy to miss



Winthrop is very, very anti ORV use. Yuppies have taken over.
I couldn't care less about what anybody says..............

Oddly enough there are large portions of the NF where driving WATVs off road – cross-country is perfectly legal but driving that same machine on a NF road is illegal.

Are you referring to the FS.....Travel Management Plan / MVUM map?

There are 2 ways that FS can make it illegal to ride on FS roads,
1. If the particular ranger dist. has produced a MVUM map, CFR mandated,
2. If no MVUM has been produced, there is 1 other way they can make it illegal.........but not going to say it on here, where I ride they have not done either of these.

Read the CFR's (Code of Federal Regulations)  ALOT can be learned!!!
