Another noob here to bug everyone.
New not only to the forum but this is my first off road vehicle that I can ride in.
Just purchased a 2011 RZR S

Went to Cow Mountain here in Nor Cal yesterday and put 50 easy miles on her. It sure is a blast and Im wondering why I didnt get one earlier. Took some fire roads and got braver as time went on and did some exploring. I put us in some places I wasnt ready for yet but managed to do just fine. This rig is a lot more capable then I thought it would be. Its a frigging Goat.

Only one thing that bothers me is a whining / howling noise during deceleration engine breaking situations. Im reading that this is normal (I Guess) but will get it checked out.

Im a Manufacturer of parts for 1/5th scale off road R/C parts. We took one with us and the passenger drove and I chased. Nothing like chasing an RC off road at 40 MPH :D Lots of fun to be had.

Ill be down at Buttercup the week before Halloween I was reading that there is a get together at the same time so Ill look into it.

Found a small place that was flat and had a few hills about 20 minutes from my house.
Wife had her first ride and drive. Other then being to short and having a hard time reaching the peddles she had a blast.
