Was leaving work this afternoon and decided to call Honda/Yamaha shop to see when they would have Vikings in. To my surprise they were assembling a camo EPS model that they just got in. I went there to look to finally be able to sit in one. Long story I put a deposit down and was able to hold it until our tax free weekend in Louisiana in a 2 weeks! Can't wait to get it!

Thanks for the welcome. I got to go back to dealer today to see it all put together. When I got there they were taking it on its maiden voyage! I was able to ride then drive it around the huge parking lot. With the Eps I noticed it was so easy to steer Felt like good power down low to me. Manger then came up to me and asked if they could keep it for the event they have going on this weekend to Kick off the tax free weekend the 6th. This is their only model and he wanted one there understandably to take orders. He threw in a KFI stealth 4500 lb synthetic winch and install in for free. I had to keep it there anyway to get it tax free so a huge win win for me

I personally have not drove a Viking with PS, but ive got a NON EPS model, and I find it very easy to steer around.

Your gonna love the Viking, and that tax free is gonna save ya some big money.

oyeah, my dealer called this morning and said my Warn ProVantage 3500 came in this morning, but still no Mount, i dont think anybody makes a mount yet for the Viking, except Yamaha, and they have not shipped them yet, like most of the Yamaha Viking Accessories.

Yea I saw him take the winch out the box and said he had a mount in the back. I saw a pic of yamaha's online and really didn't like. Looked low and unprotected to me. But we'll see what on it and decided if I like it.

i was wondering what turned out on the winch mount, cause far as i know, the Yamaha one is not out yet.

He said the one he thought would fit wouldn't work when they tried. I took the winch home and they will install it when the mount comes in. They have them both ordered receiver hitch one and regular mount. I can choose when they come in and they are going to mount it.

30th of this month is a good amount of time away, any chance we can start seeing them sooner than that?
Well, i called them and gave them the diffrent part #'s, and they looked it up, and gave me that date, and said they showed to be on Backorder till that date. So probally not till then or after, but im hopeing sooner, i need my winch installed, and get my radio so i can put that in.
