Well I traded my 2009 Powermax 500C for a 1995 southern US Ford F-150 XLT, Flareside pick up. Then bit the bullet and purchased the 2012 Can am Outlander XT 1000 in Pure Metallic, Magnesium. I have a FULL set of Richchet skid plates on order, Fender extenders to be installed, NO snorkels, (Can AM hasn't yet released a kit for the 2012 1000 or 800's yet). NO hand or thumb warmers, (for the 2011 800 they were $90, for the 2012 800 and 1000, retail is $190)!!!! Bike is being shipped to my dealer from another and will be picked up by me one week from Monday...woohooo
