I am new to the ATV hobby. I have never owned one but am going to sell my Harley and put the money toward getting one .I live only a few miles away from the Hatfield -McCoy Trail system so I think I would get more uses out of a ATV than I do the Harley. I think the Kodiak would be a great choice for how I would use it . Trail riding and snow plowing would be the things I would do with it.. One of my friends said make sure I get power steering. Is it really that important to have ? The only time I have rode one was a few years ago and I do not think it had power steering but was not hard to steer the best I can remember. The reason I am trying to stay on the cheap side is my wife wants her own when I get one so I will be looking at getting two when I do it.
