    My friend has let me use his Suzuki 400 Eiger ever since I've been burning wood,and it's a helluva workhorse. I've been in the woods cuttin locust for about a month now and have hauled alot out with it.I've also pulled some logs out that I would guess weighed 1500# easily. Well he sold his Eiger 10 years old 995 miles and got 1500$ for it and bought a new Polaris 500.So I've got to put my new toy with only 3 miles on it to work,and get it all dirty,oh well. atv.jpg

    Nice. I wish I had a friend that would replace my 25 year old Big Bear for me.

    Sweet! But 995 miles on a 10 year old machine?! I have almost that much and the machine is only a year old. No, I do not do trail riding. It is just work around our place; hauling wood and toting my butt from spot to spot.

    He only used it to haul deer out of the woods and for turkey hunting ,I honestly believe I January day 020.jpg put more miles on it than he did. The first party that looked at it grabbed it no bartering or questions,I don't know much about atv's but this is the equivalent of what he had and it impressed me.This is the 10 year old machine,that I used back in January.

    Looks great, I'm not sure what I would do without the Rhino.

    Good deal for someone . . . it may be a bit older and may not have as many bells and whistles . . . but with less than 1,000 miles on it, the ATV must have been in pretty good shape.
