Howdy,

I just purchased a 2016 XCM and subsequently found this site. Seems like a lot of thoughts out there on Polaris's recent decision, but I couldn't pass up the offers they were throwing around. I just traded in my Yamaha R1. It's a big change, I know, but I've owned em all, and my knee just can't take the sport riding after almost losing my leg in an accident in 15'. I'm super excited to get some miles in. I haven't even gotten to take it home yet as they are replacing a wheel that was damaged in shipping (on another bike no less, but they robbed Peter to pay Paul on another magnum they sold). They gave me an Octane as a loaner and man is that thing loud. It is a blast to ride though. plenty of power and carves well enough.

Glad to be here, can't wait to share in my adventures with yall.

Cheers

My XCM


My Loaner Octane

It's a real pleasure to ride around town. If I could keep it and my xcm I absolutely would.
