well guys and girl's,the riding was gonna be real good this weekend.spent a few hours this week getting her ready for wales,covered her up last nite before the frost and thats the last ill see of her.some low life scumbag's decided id had her too long.if id parked my car a foot further over there wouldnt have been enough room to get through.so they took the gate and sum fence apart to get it out,i spose theyd have damaged the car as well if it were in the way.
so what do yall recon shall i get another 450 or a 500 next?
was at the bike show last month they said theyd probably be able to get me one of those new 700's before a rincon.

Sorry to hear that yours was stolen, I know I would be PI$$ED!
Did you have theft insurance? I would look at the Rubicon or Foreman 500 S models if I were you.

Man I'm sorry to hear that! I can sure relate...my 96 400 was stolen last October. Even though I got a new bike, I still miss my old one. It was rigged just the way I wanted it. Hope you had insurance on yours.

I replaced mine with a 500.

Im not trying to be rude or anything, but how did they steal it? Do they just roll it onto a trailer or something? Did you leave the keys in it? It seems like it would pretty difficult to do if the keys weren't in it.

Sorry to here that buddy. I had a 02 that was stolen after I had put a bunch of money into and the bad guys desided that it was just the way they wanted it. had mine for a year, and still had to pay the next two years for something I didn't have anymore. Amazing what we do to keep a good credit score....lol! Anyway, hope she comes back home one day.

we leave one of the keys in the four wheeler, but the only time i could be stolen is when we are gone, becasue we live in an old house that the basement has a ramp that gos to a garage door so we would hear the door open and the foreman start.

sorry to here about yours being stolen. no one would make it far if they tried to steal the froeman.

That's funny! I would love to see this. If this information is at all accurate, then myself and many others on here paid more for nothing. Apparently the extra 55cc's don't bennefit you at all.

I have both an 07 Foreman 500 ES and an 08 Rancher 420 ES and while the Rancher will take the Foreman off the line, top speed, if the speedometers on them are correct, is 53-55 on both.
