The viking sure does seem to be better built than anything else on the market and your pics sure domhelp prove it. People can say what they want about going faster, as far as I'm concerned it is a lot more important to me to be able to ride all day and make it back to camp than it is to be able to run 70 mph for 20 Min and spend the rest of the day hunting parts and replacing axles. I watch he trails a lot and where we ride in WV there is always at least 2 razers sitting in the camp ground with at least one axle out of it. What the heck is the fun it that. And they laugh at me in my viking, really, there shit cost more and it stays broke down. Sorry for the rant but anyway, Vikings own the trails on the east coast.
