    That Jackal ride definately showed the P500 could do more than I thought. Logs were self preservation of new Mudbuster fenders, LOL. But, does seem there are some adding a second machine for the faster or different ride. Personally, will be keeping the P500 along with my Mistress machine, as it fills a 50 inch trail niche better than alternatives.

    I liked mine just fine, I only upgraded because my wife wanted something we could all fit in at our cabin. You make some valid points about suspension and no front locker, the P5 is plenty capable of tackling some trail with a few mods. I wish I could have both, the 700-4 is a bus compared to the P5. Just my 2 cents.

    Good idea.;) By the time I’m done building the 700-4 I’ll have as much in it as a stock Pk-5 deluxe. I don’t think any machine is perfect, just like trucks, there’s always something someone has on theirs that you would like to have on yours. Oh well, it is what it is!

    Honda got my money for three reasons, dependability, overall machine length and the stow away rear seats. I think I read an article when I was trying to decide that called the P700’s and PK’s the Swiss Army knife of SxS’s. I agree on the wolverines, if at any point I walk away from Honda it will be for a wolverine.

    I’m looking close at the x2 se with the piggyback shocks and painted plastics. Does anyone know if the painted plastics are better than normal plastics? More/less scratch resistant?

    Maybe @PistonHonda will chime in, I think his are painted plastics, it’s a sharp looking rig for sure!

    I haven't noticed a difference either way, but the paint is metallic and looks great!

    I like the grey base model the best of any of the colors. I’m thinking this with maybe some 814 shocks and 28” tires would make a very capable trail rig! I looked at a Polaris General today and was nice but overpriced compared to the Yamaha

    It's cost effective to get the R-Spec instead of adding the shocks yourself.

    The Generals are so capable on the trails. They do things no other SxS can do.
