Hey gang,

Just another new guy sniffing around the ATV world for the first time.

If a proposed property deal goes through the county approval meatgrinder, I'll need a quad to harvest wood, haul rocks, reposition fallen trees for cutting, and pull a 44" cutter. Terrain varies from gently sloping to steep, wooded ridge line.

Currently, I'm gathering data on what I need, and a couple of good folks over at Windrock have recommended the Foreman. I have a bunch of questions (ES vs manual, need for locking diff, essential mods, etc.), but I'll try to keep the questions down while I research the boards.

I'm ex-military (1st Cav, Viet Nam), a UT/SEC fan (who only pulled for the Gators after UT was eliminated, but didn't they whup some UCLA ass, though?), firm believer in the 2nd Amendment, registered Minuteman, and proud Buell rider. Now that I've alienated at least half the people on the board, I'll shut up, lurk for a while, and try to learn a little something about quads.

Lady & Gentlemen:

Thank you all for the nice welcome! This board seems to be ripe with info for a guy like me who is just sticking his toe in the water.

Speaking of water, it seems like there is a submarine element here. Are some of you guys frustrated Navy u-boaters, or ya just like combining scuba with your off-roading? : - )

The array of snorkle devices really set me back. I hadn't realized that ATVs were so versatile. At present, I have no compelling interest in crawling along the bottom of a lake, but who knows: maybe it's an acquired taste.

Lumpy, thanks for your service! The 11th ACR was a butt-kicking unit in Viet Nam. I'm sure you carried on that tradition in Germany.

Best to all,
