On the six hour drive home from the ride, I have pondered the merits of switching from an atv to a side by side. I must be honest, age is creeping up, my lower back was hurting, ground looks harder....and three of my friends have bought one this week.

Well you saw how they work this past weekend. After 105 miles I felt pretty good but just tired. I started on dirt bikes for 30 years, then ATV's for 3 years, then Rhino for another 3 years and have love my razor.

If you ride solo, I would stay on the atv. If you double, get the sxs. I ride my Rancher when I'm by myself and have lots of fun but doubling is terrible, esp. on steep stuff. I love riding with my wife in the Rhino but it is really boring solo.

I know how much you love riding your 4 wheeler and riding a side by side is not the same thing. The best scenario is to have both so when you feel the urge to pull a wheely and ride down the road you can. I have been riding ATVs since they have been around and the side by side is the right thing for me at my age. I was getting sore every time I rode and the side by side took care of that and they are a lot of fun and have much different challenges than the 4 wheelers. My advise is to keep both until you feel the need to sell your wheeler and it will happen.

Same thing happen to my buddy Ronald, DrMud.

Ronald has had ATV's for a few years, but kept getting more and more beat up as he got older, and his wife rides with him, so thus a SxS was more practical for him....

Brother I had three ATV's in the Garage when I went and bought the rhino and have since sold all three ATV's! You don't get the adrenaline rush that you do on an ATV but the ride is so much better and they are so much more versital.

I had a 660 grizzly (with 27" XTR's ITP wheels, HMF exhaust, and a few more little things.. lol) a Raptor 700 (with way to many mods to list) and a wolverine 450 in the shop when I bought the rhino... At times I wish I had them back but when I sold them I just hated to see them set in the garage..
