Side by Sides

My wife and I are considering purchasing a side by side to bring along behind our Greyhawk 31FK. Can anyone point me in the right direction to do the necessary research, reviews and to better understand what I am getting into with a vehicle like this? We are looking to use them on backcountry, forest service roads. We are not planning on doing any rock crawling to very little to no sanddune driving.
Any information would be appreciated. Hopefully this is the proper location for this post.
Thank you in advance.

So many out there to choose from. Dirt Trax Television has a number of videos on YouTube that may help you sort out all the features. For us, it’s a Polaris RZR 900 Trail. We do mostly trail riding and plan to visit some of the National forest areas in Utah where some of the trails are restricted to machines no wider than 50”.

You may want to do a Google search for UTV Forum sites, there are many to look at with lots of info. Not sure you will get much input from this site, dont see much talk about UTVs here but someone may chime in.

Thanks Sundancer and Stingray. I wasn't sure if there was much discussion on the UTV's here. I thought it worth a try since it has always provided me with so much information. Tghans to both of you, I will take a look athte sites you referenced and google for other forums.
Thank you again.

We love our Kawasaki mule. Itís not as sporty as a rzr but serves our needs great. We have been over many miles of national forest back roads in Colorado and New Mexico. Plus Kawasaki has a 3 year warranty which is 6x longer than Polaris. Mine just expired and I never had to use it because Kawasaki builds a quality product.

Thank you Farnik78, I appreciate the info. I wondered about the "mule" type v the "rzr" types.

Kawasaki makes a Teryx which is more like a rzr. I like the mule because it has more room and can haul more.

Used to always have Polaris RZRs but made the switch to Canam and couldn’t be happier. On my last polaris I got tired of receiving so not rude notices in the mail because of fires and recalls.

I saw that when I looked last evening. All of them look great and are similar in specs. We would be looking at a 4 seater to be able to take the grandkids along! Thanks again for your help.

Good to know about the rzrs, they seem to have the best marketing program tends to make one overlook all the potential pitfalls. I have seen the Can-ams and will take a look, thank you.
