I was thinking more along the lines of hauling stuff like a bed is intended for. I've had 2 rhinos in the past and a Ranger now. I've had a few 4 wheelers too. After owning a side x side I'll never go back to a 4 wheeler. It's nice being able to load the decoys, guns, dog, and bags plus have room for a hunting buddy. Not many ranchers gonna do that..... Big plus side to the ranchers though is that if you get it stuck you might be able to get out with out a winch.
I would say this is a prime case of diminishing marginal return. The can-am is a bad mamma jamma and if you got money to blow and want the baddest bike out here you go. If the extra performance, features, specs, etc are not worth 5000 more then no it isn't worth the money.

Well I only have myself that I hunt with, and POSSIBLY 1 other person when I'm going deer hunting. Other times, I'm on land where everybody else has a 4 wheeler to get to their stand anyway. I can't justify spending $10k+ on a SxS at the moment.
