Amazing ATV for the Money
By Mike(Owner), Jun. 27, 2011
This is the perfect ATV for the casual owner that just wants a solid machine. I mainly use the Sportsman 500 for work, but it is also a great machine for riding the trails. I see no reason to spend thousands more on any other utility ATV. I highly recommend the 2011 Sportsman 500. Read Full Review

Great buy for years of fun
By Chuck(Owner), Oct. 8, 2012
Bought my 2011 sportsman 500 ho august of 2011 and have had no problems with it. I mostly ride trail and mud holes with 850 miles and rising. Still have the stock tires on it. About 75% front tread left and about 40% rear tred left. Suspension is nice and soft. I'd hit a good size rock and it would ... Read Full Review
