Today we bring you our first My Favorite Feature on this brand new RZR, and that would be the gas tank. Yes, it sounds simple, but believe us it is important. Check out the video.
It seems every time you read about the Honda Talon you are reminded it has a DCT transmission. In fact, the Honda DCT transmission can be found on many of Honda’s side-by-sides and ATVs. So what is the big deal about this transmission, and what makes it different from the competition on the Honda Talon? We thought we would answer these questions.
At the beginning of February our own Casey Cordeiro, along with his band of cohorts, set off into the "unknown" to tackle the Arizona Peace Trail aboard a slew of new side-by-sides. The trip would take them over seven days, 6 nights, and 710 miles of off-roading goodness. He and his group did the entire off-road portion of the Arizona Peace Trail plus
Casey is back from his time in "Hammertown", and he has brought with him many, many photos from the event. It has been a blast looking through the action from the race, and has brought back memories causing a little bit of elevated heart rate. What a race! Below are a roundup of some of the photos Mr. Tall hair aka Casey Cordeiro took. Look
The Honda Talon has become a force in the industry since its introduction just over a year ago. One of the things that makes it so unique is the fact the hydraulic transmission has both a manual and automatic mode, which is a significant advantage. Check out the video. Check out the video.

There is no question it was Can-Am's year at King Of The Hammers as all three podium spots were filled with Can-Am racers including the winner Hunter Miller. Can-Am racers just flat out crushed the race with eight of the ten top positions. That is truly impressive. This is just two weeks after Can-Am racers secured all of the top 20 positions at the 2020 Dakar Rally
Honda is truly "on the gas" with the Talon family, and we are excited to see Honda introduce these FOX Live Valve models! Yes, so far the FOX Live Valve has been regulated to the Talon 1000X-4, but no more. Today Honda rolled out FOX Live Valve versions of both the Talon 1000R and the Talon 1000X. Though it is no surprise to see 2-seat Live Valve models, it is great to see them because
The ROXOR UTV has been on our radar since its release, though we have not had a chance to drive one (we are working on that). We have been very curious about this UTV because the platform itself is based much more on a traditional vehicle setup than the side-by-sides in the industry. The transmission is hydraulic with both the manual and automatic versions, the frame

Last week Mr. Tall Hair aka Casey Cordeiro climbed into the cab of the new 2020 Ford SuperDuty for some seat time in the latest version of this industry stalwart. Now I would like to say that as the "Ford Guy" in our ATV ESCAPE family, I was "hurt" that it was him, but oh well, right! I will let him bring all the information in the near future about the 2020 Ford SuperDuty, but
Last week we brought you an update on what is considered to be the roughest, toughest, off-road race in the World. DAKAR is 5,592 miles across Saudi Arabia which is grueling in every way imaginable. Casey Currie has been chasing the win, and, after several days and 5,592 miles, brought home the 2020 DAKAR win. Casey is one of the first Americans to win DAKAR.
Pelican Products just announced an all-new line of Pelican™ CARGO Cases, which caught our attention since we use Pelican products on a regular basis to carry camera gear, personal electronics, and much more. The fact is, when it comes to protecting gear from the dangers of the outdoors Pelican is THE standard in the industry, and the military uses Pelican gear. If it is
It seems like we receive an email all the time about Yamaha's Outdoor Access Initiative. Part of that is how quickly time passes as you get older, and MOST of that is because Yamaha is so diligent to award money to projects that allow the public to recreate. Quarter after quarter Yamaha awards $100k+ to organizations that facilitate outdoor activities, and year after
There has been so much excitement surrounding the introduction of the Kawasaki Teryx KRX 1000 sport side-by-side, and for good reason. The Teryx KRX 1000 has so much going for it, and we will have many Favorite Features videos coming from the KRX 1000. We are starting out with the center dashboard and the ease of which you can remove it and add your switches for additional accessories. Check out the video.

Some of these payouts are for winning races, while some of them are
The DAKAR off-road race is something all of you have probably heard about at some point because it is "the" race billed as the toughest off-road race ever.

First and foremost the fact the Can-Am Defender 6x6 has six wheels and tires and six-wheel drive is the most awesome feature of the Defender 6x6. That is just naughty! Besides this, the standout feature is the six-foot long dumping cargo bed. You can carry so much stuff. You could even carry a bed.... in the bed! Check out the video.
Several months ago, we brought the news that Polaris was partnering with Dave Campbell Texas Football to find the 2019 Polaris' most driven team. Being we are not only headquartered in Texas, but born and raised in Texas, we are familiar with the level of seriousness Texans take their football. Every single football team in Texas is "driven"! After much of the season five finalists were chosen
It has been a big month for "giving" with Honda jumping into the fray by donating two Honda Pioneer 1000 side-by-sides to the Kurt Caselli Foundation. That made us wonder what the Kurt Caselli Foundation is all about? It turns out the Kurt Caselli Foundation focuses on safety of off-road riders. It has raised over $1 million and will have spent over $700,000 on safety initiatives. Its safety and scholarship budget
There is a lot to like about the Kawasaki Teryx, but there is one feature that instantly makes the Kawasaki Teryx stand out from the rest of the side-by-sides on the market. That would be the storage bins. These are giant weather-sealed storage bins behind the front seats and in front of the tilting bed, and you can carry a ton of stuff in them. Check out the video!
It has been said many, many times that sport side-by-sides "can't haul anything". Well this week in My Favorite Feature Video Casey proves this to be a myth, or at least in the Honda Talon 1000X 4. Between the deep cargo bed with a lip to keep your gear from falling out and the roll cage sides, you CAN haul some stuff! To get
This year Honda did some revamping of the Honda Rubicon starting with an upgraded engine that makes the Rubicon a 520cc ATV. There are several new features on the Rubicon 520, but lets start with the NEW reverse lever. This feature makes us giddy because of the pain it has been in years' past to go from forward to reverse! Now, simply pull the lever, click the downshift button
Honda just announced its Honda Talon 1000R racing team consisting of Eliott Watson and Christopher Polvoorde as the pilots of the new Talon side-by-side.

There are things about the Kawasaki Teryx that make me happy including some completely unique features not found on other side-by-sides. That would be where we land today on our Favorite Feature. The Kawasaki Teryx has an extra level of protection in the form of metal wheel wheels rather than the typical plastic ones. This is a good thing, and you can find out all abou
