    Default 2014 Yamaha Viking

    Picked up a new Viking today. Still breaking in but so far I love the damn thing. Runs good tons of room and a bed that can actually hold something.

    That seems to be the trend. I think only Honda is using a fluid transmission but the scooter itself isn't much to look at.

    I like the street legal ones with the manual trans but they are all china junk.

    I decided to just buy a car trailer. I got an 18' gatormade. The place I bought it has pretty good deals on gatormade trailers. They also have utility trailers. Let me know if you are interested and I will get you their info.

    Good Choice on the car trailer. you can haul a couple side-by-sides, some 4-wheelers, or an occasional broke ass car. It'll get good use.

    Thanks for the info Kenny. I think a car trailer is also a good investment.

    yeah but you could still sit in the parking lot at T&L with it hahaha.

    are you sure it tops out at 50? .. if so... why? hell most of those SOB's go over 70 now... not that I'd want to be in any of them doing that.

    This is more of a utility SBS.. Kinda of dual purpose. I leave the speed to the razr kids.

    This is for working around the property and Trail riding..

    I figured why spend $1300 on a utility trailer when for a little more I could get a dual axle trailer with brakes that I could also put a car on if needed. He has 16' gatormade car trailers for $1950. Dual axle, brakes on both axles. Title, reg. and permanant trailer tag is $86. The 18' was $2150, and I bought a spare tire also. He said there wasn't any sales tax if you got a permanant tag also.

    Hell I love the damn thing and I've never considered a utility sxs until I rode in it. Way nicer than what my family's ever had for the farms. I've rode gators, Kubotas, rhinos, china crap, rzrs, and I think it's great. Good fit and finish, with a reliable motor and trans set up.

    .... so this is what old people buy instead of golf carts?

    ..... people who farm can't afford things like that I'm actually surprised that it wasn't over 15k as i was expecting. people pay crazy money for these things any more.

    what further more annoys me is people buying them then driving half on the road and half off the road going 30 MPH. but then they get on the gravel road by the farm house and try to hit 80. .....I think I need a bigger bumper for the jeep soit won't hurt so bad when they hit me ..
