Best side x side ATV?


I guess as part of growing up (old) I should sell my motocross bike (2006 CRF 450R) and get a cool little side by side that I can run around town in and out to the beach and stuff.
Best place to look for a cheapish side by side. SoCal I'm thinking.
I'm not really finding them on like ATV trader.
Wheelie-ing my way to the grocery store would be fun the 1st couple of times but after that I guessing 4 wheels is better.

How bad do you want one? Just go back to work for awhile or simply buy a side by side. Your choice is....?
Hope you enjoy your side by side. :))

I am thinking the same thing and going back and forth between 2 seater and 4. 4 seats is more room for gear if its just a 2 person trip and more room for people visiting going around town. Race Dezert has a bunch but most are pretty spendy and probably beat on pretty good. I'm thinking one that has been raced and prepped every time for a good price. Saw one the other day for 10.5K and had all the goodies but I was a day late.

40mph, come on now. Rhino is for working a farm, not exploring Baja.

I forgot. Plus I was thinking beter than a motorcycle so I don't have to carry my groceries on my lap.
But I will tough it in my f350 until I find me a little jeep for xploring around.
I still selling my Honda. I by something more baja appropriate when I figure out what that is.
Thank you for caring:coolup:
