I had a Polaris Big Boss 6-wheeler with a 2-stroke in Alaska. That silly thing would climb a tree. I drowned it once trying to cross the Big Sustiva River out of Talkeetna. Water over the seat in the middle of the river. Got it back on land, pulled the filters and spark plug, cranked it to pump all the water out, put it back together, fired it up and drove it home. Good times.
If it were supposed to be easy, they'd have sent my little sister to do it.
