  • My scrambler 500
    By Brock foster (I am an Owner) on Dec 28, 2017

    I have owned my Polaris since 2006. Bought left over 05. Still have today in 2017 almost 2018. Completely stock. Best quad ever made. Great handling and control and feel. Sport 4x4. Solid rear axle. Plenty of power. More than anyone could use safely.
