I had a 2007 Yamaha 700 Raptor. I bought it before I went over to Iraq as a gift to myself for completeing a very hard military course, "Air Assault".
I left for Iraq, and when I came home on leave, I bought more stuff for it to get more power and better sound to it.
I left home after my two week leave, and went back over, and about two months before I got to come back home for good, I found out from my family that my Raptor was stolen.
I didn't have insurance on it. I didn't even know that there was insurance for a 4-wheeler, so I had to use most of my money that I made over in Iraq and pay it off.
Wish I could get another one, it was the best 4-wheeler I've ever had. I loved it and rode it all the time, sunny, rainy, windy, happy, sad, or mad.
I would just start it up and just take off for hours. Maybe one day I can be fortunate to get another one, and when I can, it would be another 700 Raptor.
