As a hobby I repair wrecked quads. In the past year I've had an '03 Rincon that went off a mountain end over end more than 300 ft. Frame was not bent. All the plastic, racks, handlebars, and pod were crushed. Less than a $1000 in damage. Then an '01 Foreman was hit head on by a pickup truck, didn't bend the frame on it either. Just front plastic, rack, bumper, A-frame, and Knuckle. under $800 in parts. So I quess Honda does build tough machines.

good news on the helmit, guess I had better start wearing mine again,
I laid my 06 over on its side a couple weeks ago, on a rocky trail. Dumped me off, bruised my hip and elbow a little, injured my pride a whole lot,
bent the rear rack and scuffed up a couple fender flairs is all, all fixed now. I replaced the flairs from Bikebandit.com and bent the rear rack back while still on the bike, I am still a little tender.
Hoonda Tough..

i would have to agree with that. last winter riding with a fairly large group for a now yearly winter run, us guys in front were cooking along to keep up with my cousin with his new outy 650, we came over a hill in the woods with a tight corner at the bottom and found that there was ice half way down the hill into the corner the hard way. i side swipped a limited ed. polaris 500 h.o. with my 500s, i got thrown off my machine, but only had a scuffed the right front fender trim and lost a couple of plastic rivots.
the polaris got fixed right up after about $2300 of repairs. thank god for the insurance and helmet.

I had a brand new 2004 500i Cat and I was out dicking around in the snow. Hit a rut and pushed front left a-arm back resulting in a bent frame; I have hit anything and everything with my Honda's and nothing ever happens. They are tough

2006 TRX500FM Foreman S

A honda foreman is one tough machine, today I was at a Kawasaki shop geting some parts for my sons Kx85. As I start looking at the 650 Kawasaki the salesman starts to brag to sell it to me. It was neat but look close at this animal. I have no need to go 60 MPH. I rock climb up and down and hall butt up and down trails and sometimes do things with it I do not wish to talk about. It is bullet proof and will always hold a good value. And I am just not interested in a belt drive. I still enjoy the old manual 5 speed.

1 tough Honda

Took my 06 Foreman swimming last weekend, Well to make a long story short, The bike stalled in the middle of a creek and water got up the exhuast and into the engine... So we pulled it out the creek and drained the exhaust and pulled the plug.. Turned the bike over, and water started shooting out of the spark plug hole...Removed as much as possible, reinstalled the plug and finished riding the creek.. Ohh ya, since then i installed a custom intake and exhaust snorkel....
