The 2011 Polaris Scrambler is a great all-around machine. I bought this to be a trail machine and it's just what I needed. It's size is great for tight trail riding and plenty of power for what I need. It's not like my old Banshee, so if speed and staight lines are what you want, this is not for you. It has a very smooth ride and the four wheel drive is great. It's very easy to operate, never owned an automatic but love it on trails. I highly recommend this to anyone!
