Re: Honda DCT Discussion Thread

Places getting hard to find to take them, sport models really tear up the terrain.

They are EVERYWHERE if you go to SW Colorado, Cloudcroft, NM., anywhere near Moab, UT., Arizona, etc,...

The General Sam Houston park North of Huntsville is popular for the SXS crowd. On Friday's, if you go over to the truck stops on the North side of town, you can see tons of big trucks with huge trailers loaded with custom tricked out SXSs. The amount of money people spend on these things is mind boggling. It is not unusual to see 3-4 of them on a single BIG trailer.

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Re: Honda DCT Discussion Thread

But you'd have to split that between the manly SXS discussion and the girly SXS discussion.

They have always been cvt, until hondas dct ones came along. Yamaha makes a 6 speed manual version of the yzx1000, that's the only factory manual.

I've got a ragged out polaris sportsman for the ranch. I dont want to have to shift while carrying a rifle and scanning for critters. But if I could afford a $17k sxs It would be a honda.

Agree, blasting hogs making a run for it across your path at 1:47am with the spot in one hand and the .45 in the other dictates the use of auto for sure

Re: Honda DCT Discussion Thread

The manual trans Yamaha is not a sport, ranch or deer lease vehicle. It's high performance, full suspension with ground clearance for sand dunes, desert blasting and racing.

SXS models have carved distinct segments without much overlap.
Utility
Ranch
Mudders
Sport
Racing
