Default Honda TRX 680FA

I decided to retire my old 97 Polaris Sportsman 500 and bought a new 06 Honda TRX680FA which I'll pick up next Wednesday. We're waiting on the winch to get here or I would already have it. I went with the Camo color.I decided against the GPS. I would rather have a small hand held one. Less to go wrong on the 4 wheeler.Does anybody have one of these 680's?If so what do you think of it?I know I would never buy another Polaris mainly because of their so called customer service.The worst I've ever dealt with.
My soon to be wife has a 06 TRX350FE,that sorta sold me on the new 680.The 350 is a sweet little machine.

I whole-heartedly agree the 350 is a sweet machine. It won't haul or pull like the 680 but it will probobly go more places. [Lighter & narrower].

The 680 is a bigger displacement version of the 650, which has a great record. They went a little bigger cc because the biggest gripe with the650 was a bit underpowered.

I don't think you'll have a single thing to gripe about except she ain't gonna give ya any chances to ride it...LOL.

I kinda thought of the same thing before buying my Honda but now that I have the GPS on my Rubicon Canadian Trail Edition I find it very useful when traveling the trails...

As long as you don't need it to do a lot of heavy pulling or jobs that require a lot of torque. I believe it lacks a low-range and the 1st gear in the ESP system is still pretty tall.

Thanks guys,I got it last Wednesday. It rides nice.The Polarisdoes have a better ride.We went to our hunting lease. I put 19 miles on it .I was taking it easy. Took itup to 38mph.Purred right along.I've been taken my hunting equipment off the Polaris and putting it on the Honda.I needed a storage trunk for the back rack. They are awfully proud of them.I checked for opitions. Good ol'e Wal*mart came through.Wally-World has a trunk made by Rubbermaidfor 45.00. I bought a couple handles for the sides,holding it down with Bungee cords.It worked out well for less then half the price.
