Default HELP!! Wanting another UTV again.

A buddy has one for sale for a steal of a price and I'm considering it. It is a huge ass Yamaha Viking bus , but would be good to get the wife/kids or whoever up to the UP. Great shape, warranty, and some goodies.

The problem is, I don't get up there too often in the summer as I'd like to. I know it is dumb to consider it but I can't help myself. I have the car and bike down here already.

Who takes their whole family to the Northwoods, goes out on ATVs or UTVs, etc. Do the kids like it? What else do you do?

my sister has 20 acres in WI. they have 2 UTV's.

1 for the kids to mess around on, 1 for the adults.

1 had doors and heat to use in the winter for plowing / brother-in-law to go to his deer stand.

the few times a year we get up there they are a blast to drive around and goof off in on the 7is acres that is the play field / hunting area.

It isn't a fast or performance UTV. It has a 700 with 30" mud tires. I think it might top out at just over 40mph. I dunno, on paper it sounds great, but in reality I dunno. The deal is great so that is what makes it so tempting. I know I should probably rent first but uggggh.

sounds like the "kids" one. 40 in one of these is blazing. well for what ive done on them it is. im sure on a longer ride with a long straight, 40 might seem lacking.

my sister's one with the plow option, is not goverened. and can get up to speed quite fast. i never look down at the speedo that often because the corners come up fast.

im headed up there for easter. i should be able to romp on each of them and let you know. should be noted they have polaris rangers. so it could differ a little to what you are looking at.

Well worth it in my opinion. If it's such a good deal and it doesn't work out, you could also sell it and profit.

I bought my 8 year old nephew a TRX 125 and he loves it. I'm hoping to get him out on some decent Wisconsin trails. I keep tossing around the idea of buying a RZR so I can take the wife out and she seems interested in at least trying it. Knowing her it's gonna be one and done though. I say go for it. I see myself transitioning to UTV's within the next 4-5 years.

It is a 2015 Yamaha Viking 6-seater, lifted, new 30" tires, power steering, roof, windshield, rear window, and a 3 year warranty for $10k. No issues and I know the owner.

What do you think this is worth? I researched it some yesterday and I'm seeing prices all over the board, but usually this price for a three seater. It does have 3k miles, but these are super reliable and I'm not concerned with that.

It is nice since it has brand new and the tires are brand new, roughly $2k in extras. I dunno, this is all impulse and I've talked myself out of it, I think. I dunno, I have visions of bringing the family, dog, and drone up to the UP and Exploring. I have a ton of friends up there who have UTVs and have a RZR in the past and sold it only because I was buying a house.

Is it going to be used or a dust collector? How often do you go up to the UP to make it worth while? Storage,can you leave it up there or do you have to trailer it? I know its hard to pass up great deals(I'm an impulse buyer too) but another deal will come along if you don't need it now

I have family in Eau Claire, WI and Ironwood, MI and they say the UTV population up there has grown tremendously. I think mid May might be my first trip, just not sure how far north yet.

You're right. Maybe if I didn't have a car and bike for the summer or if I had a house in the UP.

If anyone is interested, I can put you in touch. I know it is dumb idea that isn't in the budget, but a lot of the crap I buy is impulse. I'd be rich if I had self control LOL.

Don't look, once you see it you'll want to buy it. I'm resisting the urge to ask now

Get the property FIRST, you always find ways to get the other stuff. Like my buddy Bubba says "They cant make more dirt" 10K is a great down payment on a chunk of land and you aren't getting any younger

Tempting, but I also know I want to move south when I retire. That is a big reason I haven't bought up there. I made an offer on a house up there in 2013 but it didn't go anywhere. $28k house, I offered $20k, they didn't respond. Finally found out they wouldn't take less than asking so offered $26k LOL. They said nope, offered asking price, and they decided not to sell LOL. Their realtor was known for not budging but I had to try. Sort of happy it didn't work out, but I still love the UP. I wish the drive wasn't as far. I have friends in Wisconsin who can make it to the area I like in four hours, which is totally doable. The extra two hours really sucks LOL.

I guess I'm comparing to when I had my RZR 800. But this is what I needed to hear haha. I guess the fact that I know him, that he worked at a Yamaha dealer, made the miles not sound so bad.

I'm stuck in Illinois as I don't want to eat the paycut Id take moving somewhere else(union electrician plus I love my job) But right now I like having all 4 seasons within travel. I know "Illinois sucks" but I'm 6 hrs from my buds place in Amasa, 6 hrs from Lake of the Ozarks, 6ish from Tail of the Dragon. There is so much fun stuff to do in every season I need them all
