I'm torn. I've eliminated the polaris sportsman 1000 because I'm just scared of problems on a brand new model.

I have it narrowed to a 2015 XmR650 with winch for $11,199 OTD
And a 2015 800xt for $11,399 OTD

I do plan to hit trails through woods and yard type stuff but the abilities of the XMR and LOOKS! I absolutely love.

I won't have money for anything else for atleast a year as my house needs attention this year too so I'm pretty much at a loss.

My brain says take two they're small! But that's just not feasible.

Any pointers, help, thoughts are appreciated

800XT every day over a 650XMR for trail riding. Yeah the XMRs "look" cool. But for $200 more the 800 is a no brainer for your intended usage.

I'm with awful. The xtras that the Xmr has can be had much easier that it would be to add extra hp to the 650 to match the 800 down the line. Plus when you add parts you can be original in your look which is nice as well.

Whatever you choose, I'm sure you'll really enjoy it and it will put a smile on your face. And that's what it's all about.

My buddy has a 800xmr, after seeing and riding my 1000xtp he hates his big clumsy wheeler. I know u are talking about a 800 but a xmr is made for mud only, it's horrible on real trails.
