    Hate the things.
    So what is it? Do you hate them, or hate them with a passion? LOL

    I try, try, try to not hate anything, but SXS vehicles do earn my ire more than most other user groups. I have a local buddy who is a flight medic. He continually tells me about all of the gnarly crash victims he transports. I'm sure you've seen a few. In virtually every incident, stupidity and neglect have cause the trauma, and more often than not to the poor sap riding along, not the dolt behind the wheel.

    Again, I don't mean to paint an entire user group with the same brush but....seems to work.

    I've never ridden one of those things, but I do see a lot of them around

    Can someone explain what are advantages of a SxS compared to something like a small suzuki or jeep? It seems they are very similar in size and comparable in price, if not more expensive, so why would one choose one of those over a street legal vehicle? If I had a huge piece of property to ride on I think they'd be fun to have.

    Is there something inherent in the design that allows them to go faster? It looks like a slightly shrunken version of some jeeps, and I would think the smaller tires and smaller engine would limit the capability.

    And this right here is why I dont post about any of my adventures. Even though I have been to more places in Utah than most, all that seems to matter is what you drive. If only I drove a Toyota with a snorkel and a roof rack... lol. Hate the drivers, not the vehicles. There are good and bad in every group!
