My Dad bought a 2005 Arctic Cat 500 Limited Edition in February of 2005. He is getting to that age where comfort is a major factor. And let me tell you, Arctic Cats ride and comfort can't be beat. The 6.5 gallon fuel tank was also a factor in why he chose this machine. That is a huge margin over the closest competitor. The ground clearance is amazing. We haven't found anything we can't climb or clear. What can't this machine do? I was looking at buying a Polaris 500 myself, but after riding my Dad's Arctic Cat 500, I had to have one for myself. Within a couple weeks of his purchase, I bought one just like it. And let me tell you, I don't regret it. And you won't either. Truly an amazing machine!
Upgrades/Accessories: Limited Edition includes Brush guard, Rear bumper, Warn winch, and Chrome wheels. I added, windshield, Hand and thumb warmers, Gun scabbard, and made my machine street legal.
