Post just got the new honda rubicon 500

boss just picked it up last week......veeeery sweet ride for ranch work and trail rides....more than enough power and very stable.....its liquid cooled, has the digital display and has 3 halogen headlites....2 on the front fender and one on the handlebar, which is cool, cuase without it, you always had to point the bike where you wanted the light if you parked it.....now you just turn the handlebars...even tho its taller than my 300 fourtrax its more stable cause its a bit wider....we went on a 20 miles trailride over a VARIETY of terrain, and it out performed out 99 kawisaki prarie300 everytime.......too many tranny options tho...first you got to pick either D or Dlo, then you choose either autoHI, or autoLo or regular "push the buttons to shift gears" mode......the elec.shift is by far the best....time will tell if this will be another one of honda's legends.....
i cant pass smog :(
