Buying a 800r XT

I am picking up a 2018 next week from our local dealer any tips for a first time sxs owner. We upgraded from a faithful Polaris Sportsman 800. Excited to get exploring in comfort. We live in the Willamette Valley in Oregon.

I had a 2012 Commander 800 XT and it was a great machine. I put over 8,000 miles on it riding all over the midwest, east coast and Colorado/Utah. The only issue I ever had was a few broken tie rod ends. I paid $13,500 for it in 2012 and when I sold it earlier this year I got $7,500 for it. . . great value, fun machine.

The only modification I did to mine was to put 2" wheel spacers to give me 4" additional width which did make a difference on some of the more technical trails.
