I'm new to the forum and don't own a Viking but was wondering how everyone likes their Viking...good or bad? how is it for work and play? what would you want to change or see done differently on future models?

First off welcome to the forum, and let me tell you I think the viking is the perfect combination of work and play, I use mine every day on the farm for work and when it comes time to play it can play as hard as any other sxs out there

that's great. I have a ranger and use mine for work and play too. the sport machines don't interest me at all. I want something that works and plays well that will give good reliable service. I've really been glad to see Yamaha and Honda step up with good machines that do both well.

I think I've seen this on a video. so I guess it corners pretty flat and puts power to the ground well? is yours bone stock?

I love mine. I have been all over from dirt, sand and snow and it hasn't let me down or made me second guess it. It hauls ass and fits my needs to the T. I am glad I put a winch on it because it does make you think you can go over anything. lol..

Used my plow first time this last week. Glad to have it. The Christmas Vike replaced my two Grizzleys. Worried at first, but now very satisfied! One tank to fill. One battery to deal with and one plow. The grizzleys were bad to the bone however; the Vike is my new best friend.

What exactly are you using your Viking for? Are you just driving and hauling, or do you have some attachments or accessories as well? I'm just wondering since you use it so much.

I'm in the oil and gas business, so it haul more then I should and into placeses that I shouldn't , and some day it never get shut down during the day I change the oil about every 4 weeks. The only other on that holds up is the honda. I had a Polaris and within a 1 1/2 I went threw is warranty which is upto the price of the side x side .

I'm blogging my purchase and ownership of one, since I think this sort of thing is a help to people considering the new Viking.
Life with a Viking: The First 20 Hours

In a nutshell, I think it's fantastic, with just a few minor gripes. And I hate those stupid door latches.

We have had ours for 3 weeks and so far love it!!! It has a pile of room for everything including the dog! We have had it in deep snow, mud, in and out of diff lock and through tight woods and have been very impressed with power and comfort. We had the rhino and its definitely quieter than the rhino. Not as quiet as the Ranger but super happy with it anyway! Bring on fishing season!!
