    Your forgetting to mention how hot the seat back gets in the summer with a top and windshield.

    Also, how easy is the clutch to get to?

    Maybe it's a hind at the interior the Talon, I've heard the inside looks very finished.

    :p You still haven't gone to a Textron dealer have you? Hope Honda hits it out of the park with the Talon, I won't buy a first years model! Honda will have to put out a good rig to beat the Wildcat XX, hows that?

    If I do get a Textron, I'll be keeping Rooster, the P1-5 is like no other machine in maneuverability in the tight woods for a 5 seater, you happy? HA!

    Not my style for trails. But for a Jeep replacement I’d consider it. Definitely not a SxS.

    Go look at some, if you are mechanically inclined as I know you are you will see a huge improvement over the RZR's in front A arm's and rear trailing arms, way stronger! Just go take a look and you will see what I've been yammering on about. I'm not getting rid of my P1-5!

    This sh*t just kills me. Seriously... Is this real, or a joke? If it's real, I'm completely flabbergasted! They've spent the time, money, staff, and parts, and made the effort to get through 6000 layers of bureaucracy to get approval to do something like this Ridgeline thing, and even more incredibly, a 130 m.p.h. lawnmower, but the new P500's get a couple new colors, and still no 50" machine to compete with anyone???... do they all smoke crack every morning? W T F ?!?! I'm starting to think this company hates winning... well, aside from the lawnmower.....:mad::rolleyes:..
    I would love to have heard the meeting that got the approval for allocating the funds to build a 130 mph lawnmower.... "So, you want us to spend money to build the fastest lawnmower?" "Do you think that'll improve our lawnmower sales?" "Probably not, but it's really cool" " Sounds good, let's do it!" "So what about the Pioneer line, and our marine engines?" "Well we've gone all out on those product lines, and have some really exciting stuff!" "Really!?" "You bet- we did a huge market study, spent a lot of money y'know, and found out that all we needed to crush the competition is more colors!" "That's it!?!" "I know, right!?" "So, we added White to our flagship outboards, and two new colors to the Pioneer lines!!" "Wow, you guys knocked it outta the park!" "The competition is getting caught flat-footed this time!" "We're going to put in for substantial bonuses for the whole team"! "Outstanding work everyone!......." "Now let's go smoke some more crack, and just sit back and enjoy our sky-rocketing sales"!!
    The Talon's gonna have to be insanely outstanding for Honda to pull anyone away from the competition, or even be more than a blip in the market radar...
