As the name says I used to have a Can Am as my first ride 15 rs ago and loved it. Sold a few years back and now that I am retired out of the military and had to grow and get a real job I have been paying more attention to how much maintenance I want to do on a quad. Researching out quads from Can Am and their propensity to need lots of maintenance steered my to Yamaha. Currently I own a 2014 Grizzly that is stock with updated tires, winch, and GPS. Found this bike just under $6k with less then 600 miles and under 100hrs plus a repair record at the dealership I bought it at. I follow Yamaha forums because of the useful information found on them and to stay current with what Yamaha is putting out on the trails. I am looking at picking up a second quad and the Kodiak is high on the list. Right now selection of new and used Yamaha's in northern MN are nonexistent so I have been checking out other brands as well. Sure wish Yamaha made a two atv. With my age and riding style there really is no better quad for what I do then a Yamaha so I will be poking around this website for awhile. If anyone lives in northern MN or WI pm me if you want to meet for a ride. Have a good day.

Welcome to the forum :)

I have yet to own anything other than a Yamaha. Still young in my journey with the Quads.

Im sure youve noticed, alot of people that are trying to find a very comfortable machine, really like the Kodiak, for the lowered seat height, and the relaxed riding position.

Although these arent 2 seaters, i have personally been on mountain trails probably over 100 hours riding a second person (weighing about 120 lbs) and the machine handled it flawless.

Welcome new member.And thank you for your service to our country. My youngest son was with the 82nd Airborne at Fort Bragg. Airborne Ranger/Sniper tabs and instructor at the Armys sniper school at Ft. Benning. 3 tours with LURS unit. So its not just a 'Bumper Sticker ' to me. Great to have you on board.

Welcome. I'll second the fact that despite the kodiak technically being a one up machine, it will have absolutely zero problems acting as a two up.

Good luck in the hunt.

Thanks for the warm wishes. As far as the 82nd Airborne and jumping out of airplanes, that was not in my DNA. I stuck to fishing vessel exams in Alaska and tow boat exams on the western rivers as my career. Did get dropped by basket in Alaska so I can understand the thrill of being a little crazy.
