Just purchased a Viking about an hour ago and pick it up on Friday. I have been lurking on this forum for some time as I narrowed down my choices. It was between the Honda Pioneer 700-4 and the Yamaha Viking. In the end, I can deal with a little extra noise in order to gain a low gear. Looking forward to sharing the many highlights this new toy, ahem, I mean tool has to offer. I will post pics when its officially mine.
