    I'm looking to buy my first SXS later this year. I will be using it for trail riding in Arizona. I am not looking to go super fast or do crazy trail crawling. Rider comfort is most important. I'm a 50 year old guy just wanting to do some trail riding. I was leaning towards the Polaris General but now interested in the new Talon 4 seater. I'm a big Honda fan since i grew up on Honda bikes. I had never considered the RZR since i thought it was more than i really need since i am not looking to go fast or use crazy trails. Is the Talon too much? Thoughts?

    We use our, Pioneer P1 for trail riding and yard work, we'll never get rid of it, the turf mode is great in the yard, if your going to use it for working, I would go with the General or Pioneer, Talon's don't have much bed space.

    The talon or pioneer 1000 would be your better choice.

    We took our Polaris General to MOAB this past June. It was the most miserable trip. It was the Hunter Edition. Had 30 inch tires, 3" lift. Not only was the wheelbase too short, the suspension was miserable over rough terrain. We traded it on the way back from MOAB for a 2-seat Talon R. Couldn't be happier. Gave up some storage but gained way more comfort, articulation and NO BELT.

    We are in AZ if you just want to do trails the Honda Pioneer 1000 is great for.
