Slayer1962 here

I have not been able to log in under Slayer1962 for over a year maybe longer.
Decided to log in as a new user. Hope i did not brake any rules but it has been frustrating.
I had a Can Am 100 xt highly modified. I did 3 end over ends 3 days before my daughter s wedding.
I broke 4 ribs and suffered until after the wedding because my wife and daughter would have killed me
I sold my atv shortly afterwards deciding a 57 year old does not need to do 80 mph thru the woods.
I miss it and have been looking for a new atv so i figured i would come back to my old friends so i can make an educated decision.
I am not going to modify my new machine so however it comes from the factory is it.
Thinking of Can Am 650 XMR or Brute force . I like the XMR but the deals on Brute are really good right now. $7199

Welcome back to site. Sorry to hear about your ordeal. I own a 2014 1000 XT Outlander and I have big respect for the size. But you know you can still flip a smaller ATV, started out on 300 cc and was lucky didn't get hurt. Born 1961 so I tend to take it easy and when I let it loose, I make sure of my surroundings. But shit can happen, so be careful and have fun.

Welcome back. I know it's up to you but, I am pretty sure if you want to get that Slayer1962 online again. A pm to OSOKILL ask for his help would do the trick.

Welcome back Slayer Guy


3 endo's & you only broke 3 ribs ... ... you're lucky my friend ... however, I'm also really glad you weren't hurt any worse.


You kinda made me laugh when you wrote ... "I am not going to modify my new machine so however it comes from the factory is it." .... I said that myself when I bought my 2014 Outlander MAX 1000 .... and that lasted almost 5 yrs ... took my tracks off in Apr & the mods have begun ... no motor mods mind you ... yet ... but the cash is filtering to the aftermarket companies at a fairly good rate ....


I just hope my health stay good so I can get at least 10 more years of riding under my belt ... or more ... ....


But, about your question ... I have a couple friends who owned Brute Forces ... they don't anymore BTW ... but I'd get the 650 XMR ... or the 850 or even the 1000 .... But that's me ...

Thanks for welcome back guys

I had probably $17,000 into my 2012 XT 1000
I think the more i modified the more i tried to push it to the limits.
I am 57 and don't heal like i did when 30 .
I have more interest in an atv as a tool now.
I bait with them, hang stands and like to explore.
My 1000 was snorkeled and i never saw a mud hole i didnt want to try.
I think ( think) i am ready to drive around mud holes when possible

Its reel hard not to jump back into the XMR 1000r Yellow, all my ATV friends some younger and some older all have an XMR or they have had their Dealer put on a Rad relocated and snockel kit. We have lots of trails and mud, I would hate to start using "ALL" the go around because we called them Polaris Bypasses. And I know how you felt a bit, I went off the side of my 500 Suzuki and bruised a rib. Three broke ribs, wow!
