New to the forum and have been reading many of the posts about the Viking and have narrowed it down between the viking and the pioneer 700-4. I do like the three seat bench of the viking. I don't plan on doing much work with it, mostly trail riding. I have been a Honda guy my whole life and don't know much about Yamaha. I've read about the loudness issues, how hot the engine gets and not sure if I’m really big on the belt drive transmission. Obviously most users on this forum are going to be biased toward Yamaha, but trying to do my homework. In the end i want something that is going to last a long time and give me the least amount of issues, reliability is one of my main desires. I had one Polaris in my life and it will be the last, screw them and their reliability.
