    Cool YXZ1000R turbo -- off road monster; the real deal!

    Yamaha GYTR turbo.






    Or go aftermarket






    Leave it stock, do a desert racer/rock crawler build, or a dune-dragster build. In any case, this Yamaha is a serious cross terrain vehicle that, IMO, stands head and shoulders above all other UTVs!

    Very nice with a $25K entry price before mods. Can't build a comparable Jeep for twice the comparable dollars.

    Those guys need window nets or arm restraints. If you saw my left arm you would understand why I say this.

    Sorry to hear of the hard learned lesson. These machines can really stomp a fellow even if very careful. Internet has many a photo and video of wadded up UTVs with examples of driver's helmets flying off and side netting fasteners failing.


    I like a bike in that you can get away from it on a failed hillclimb. My TW usually don't chase me down a hill like a tumbling ATV can, to take you along for the ride wherever it goes as in UTVs.
    Impressive advances in the machinery make these things go faster every year.

    S'not the proper way to drive one. 4 back flips is a bit rough on the bank account.

    Ouch, that was a rough hill climb. I definitely agree with the bit about bikes being a lot less of a handful on proper hill climbs. They just kind of flop over on you and slide a ways if you don't get it, for the most part, whereas 4-wheelers go tumbling down, down, down [into a burning ring of fire] LOL.
