It Finally Happened!

Postby QMaze » Sun Apr 07, 2013 4:29 am

Well after years and years of dreaming, being part of many ATV forums, the day has come and own my first ATV. I decided life's too short and pulled the plug. Picked up a 2009 Yamaha Grizzly 550 off eBay, drove to Pennsylvania last weekend and picked it up. Not only did my research all these years but also on eBay, dealer was awesome and it was better than expected in the end. EVen splurged on a good trailer since I'm hauling it with a smallish vehicle to keep things nice and light. It's been like a 20 years wait.

Thanks very much, I remember a very long time ago on ATVTime when Mr Miyagi sent me a private message, telling me to hang in there and it took him a long time to get his first ATV, so I thought I better pay you guys a visit and show that patience does pay off. Can't wait to take it out.

Wow! That's awesome. Terry would be so happy....but first he'd say what took so long dumb ass. LOL.


Seriously.....it's purty.


Funny....ATVTime....that place was strange.
