New 08 Sport or 09 SE?

Hello, I've learned a ton from browsing the forums and I'm about to pull the trigger on a new 08 sport or 09 se. Any thoughts on going with one or the other? thanks in advance.

If your going to add a Mid or long travel kit don't waste the money on the sport.

"No," she said, "it's just regular porn, you sick bastard."

I would say teryx or prowler... the rhino needs a major overhaul to keep up with the competition IMO

Now you have me thinking. I don't need to be the fastest but the torque through the dunes would be nice. My friend has a stock Teryx and he's right there with some built up 660's that are also in our group. What to do?

Now that you have added the Teryx to the mix, than buy the Teryx. Hard to beat the v twin for torque over the single slugger rhinos

Here's my group, I've always ridden a dirtbike so i'm usually doing the waiting. (crf450).

2008 razor w/long travel
2006 rhino w/long travel
2005 rhino w/long travel and 660 bored up with 12:1 compression
2006 rhino w/bed delete and stock 660 and long travel
2008 teryx stock w/cdi

The razor seems to own the pack at the moment

With a few mods the Teryz will take the Rzr, and not require regular overhauls either

The Teryx is like 5k less money than a RZR or Rhino or Arctic Cat. Teryx is the best bang for the buck. The Rzr does not last IMO. The Arctic Cat is unproven but by far the fastest UTV made.
