New Kodial owner 2 days now! Never owned an ATV before so just learning basics right now but I love it. I have the no-frills model YFM70KDXG. Looking forward to getting it on the trails!

I have only had my first atv (Kodiak EPS) for a few weeks and they really are awesome aren't they! I might have to take mine to Moab, Utah and have some fun climbing around on those rocks when the weather clears.


BTW, congrats on the new Kodiak

Whidbey Island in WA. No local areas to ride, will have to hail it when weather breaks.

Welcome to the forum.

What got you into ATV's? And what was the first one you got to ride?
I've been an avid hunter my whole life. I was diagnosed with MS over 10 years ago, was fairly ok for the first 5, but it's getting harder to walk. Walking is the hardest thing I do in fact and I tire quickly, so I made the leap and brought an ATV. The closest dealer to me had 4 Kodiaks on the floor, price looked good so I brought one. Still trying to figure out WA state rules and regs on where to ride, but at this point in life, being 53 with MS, if some LEO wants to write me a ticket for puttering down a logging road looking for a place to elk hunt then God bless him/her, it's the price of doing business is the way I look at it. Looking at buying one for my wife and getting a diamond back carrier for my f250 and hauling the trailer somewhere. We both took an ATV safety class last week,

Sorry to hear you have MS but hopefully you've experience the sport enough to really take it in. But at least you're still able to enjoy it, I know some people that are permanently out.

My wife has had MS for 7 years now and also has difficulty walking and strength in her left arm which is why we picked out a Kodiak 700EPS. She tried 4 different ATV's and chose this one for ease of steering and maneuvering. She uses this bike when we ride together and I use an older Honda TRX300. We love being out in the wilderness and its a great way for her to do so.

I kick myself for not getting the EPS model. Thinking of buying another for my wife and that one.

My wife is a Cross Fitter and a marathon runner, she can have the manual steering and I'll gladly take the power steering!
