Well three weeks ago a friend crashed my 2015 Can Am Outlander Max XT 500 after panicking and hitting the leisurely 12-15 mph ride into a 35mph+ horror freak out of epic proportions into a tree causing me some bruised ribs, a pelvic strain and a sprained wrist and over SEVEN THOUSAND DOLLARS of damage. Thankfully my pal faired better than me and I ended up fairing a hell of a lot better than it couldve been. Introducing the 2016 Can Am Outlander Max XT 650 with heated grips and next week a five foot snow plow!

Love some heated grips. Heated thumb warmer as well?

No just the grips with the shield. I rode till November last year without them and my fingers got nippy but with our new home out in the woods on a deep road, this girls is going to get a regular work out which means riding in January, February and March!

That is awesome.  Glad you are ok and were able to get another one.  Looks great and looks like you will be having some fun.

Thanks Eric! I will be hitting the trails up in Waterboro Maine this a Sunday and trying to climb Hall mountain again.

Ouch! Yes it sounds like it could have been worse. Trees of a good size tend not to give!

That's a nice looking ride, my old Polaris 500 is pretty tired but she still does good, have a small plow for snow, works OK, but I don't want to spend money on something I use 4 times a year. Last winter i didn't even put it on the quad there wasn't any snow to speak of! So it's basically been sitting for a year and half collecting dust...
