Ok I currently own a 2016 900xp Ranger. I am considering getting a new General. I really like it a lot. My Best friend got a new Honda 1000-5 deluxe Pioneer and after driving it the Honda drives so much smoother and tighter than my Ranger. I was actually surprised because the 700 Pioneer he owned didn't. My question to you guys is has anyone driven both to compare how they compare trail riding? Also does the General Shift into gear any easier than the rangers? Any input would be greatly appreciated. By the way If i get the General it will be the base model.
