There are gear bags, pouches, and storage boxes all meant for stowing away everything from Snickers bars to spare parts, but they all have one thing in common; before any ride they must be strapped down to your ATV or Side x Side.  That usually means tie-downs or bungee straps, but as anyone who has ever fiddled with the wrong length strap knows, that’s not always a sure thing.  It seems they are either too long, too short, or the darn hooks don’t fit around whatever you’re trying to fasten them to.  Recently, we found a nifty solution to the problem.

The saying is, “Old habits die hard.” Can-Am engineers learned that feeling well when three years ago development work began on a new model that was to be unlike anything they’d built before. Still, there would be some similarities; the new model would need excellent power, first class styling, and manufacturing excellence. It was not all unfamiliar territory, but rather than for racing across the desert or dunes, the new model was aimed squarely at what had been the domain of the Polaris Ranger.

You never really get to fully learn a machine until you can test it on your own home turf. For us that means plenty of play riding in the woods, but also many days on the job whether it is pulling a roller across a large yard, towing a wagonload of firewood, or even dragging a log from the woods. We can pretty much guarantee when there is a tough job to do, we’ll always pick the red machine with the wing on the side, and for us that is the Honda FourTrax Foreman Rubicon 4x4.

When a weekend off-road event draws more people than almost all NBA teams, it’s clearly something special. After last year’s record turnout at the wildly popular Polaris Camp RZR event held at Tennessee’s Brimstone Recreation, promoters Mark Love, his daughter Erika, and the Polaris team really mashed the throttle to the floor for an even bigger and better event this year. Goal achieved!

Kawasaki is a company on the move. They’re constantly tweaking their ATV and Side x Side lineups to make every model better, and since the overall number of Kawasaki models is a little smaller than some competitors, they can really hone the fine details that can make or break a design. For 2016 the majority of their effort was focused on a model released only a little over a year ago.
