You're continuing to give me hope this thing arrives before my Xpedition. I do find it weird that none of the orders are showing as scheduled on the polaris tracker. Still stuck on confirmed.My dealer (owner of dealership), told me end of this month for his first one. His first XD is mine so we shall see. Not sure if end of month is likely or not, but that’s what he told me a couple of weeks ago, and last week he still thought that would be true. He said Polaris told him he’d have more information on the 15th (tomorrow). If I haven’t heard from him by Wednesday I will reach out and let y’all know. AZ is hearing fall so who knows. Hope my information is correct, but with this kind of thing its very fluid. Scarce information at this point.
AZ, I am wanting some advice and based on your thoughtful and knowledgeable comments on the boards it sounds like you have more than a working knowledge of what would work well for tires. What would you recommend for 32” tires for 50% asphalt, 40% trails and 10% sand? I will likely do some kind of bead-lock wheel too.I ordered day 1. Tracker isn't showing anything except order confirmed. No dates etc.
That is a whole bunch of asphalt. Tires that will last decently on asphalt will not excel in the sand. And this machine being almost uniquely heavy makes tire choice a little more crucial. And not sure where you're located - trails in Kentucky are totally different than out west. But the tires that I recommend for that breakdown, assuming most of your trail riding general harpack, would be:AZ, I am wanting some advice and based on your thoughtful and knowledgeable comments on the boards it sounds like you have more than a working knowledge of what would work well for tires.

They don't give you a hard time using the SXS on the streets? Some areas are real strict about that.I’m in UT. You are correct, that is a lot of asphalt. That said, I am in a small town and use my SxS to run around a lot. Glad you mentioned KM3 and Terrabites. I have KM3 in my cart at RM, along with tusk terrabites. Both built on a tusk bead lock. I will likely pull trigger and get them coming when I have a solid date on rig delivery. You helped me confirm my first choice of KM3. I appreciate the time and consideration you spent!
In UT have to make it street legal (turn signals, horn, etc)and register it as such. Depending on county, cannot use on roads with posted speed limit greater the 50mph (Salt Lake County only for this requirement). All other counties can use on any road except interstate, but not supposed to exceed 50mph. I have not heard of anyone having and issue with exceeding that, but that’s the law. In SLC and other large metro areas, they are on city streets frequently. In rural towns they are nearly as prevalent as cars and used for a variety of uses. Hauling garbage to dump, running errands, grocery shopping. You name it. In many small towns they allow non street legal ATV’s on street and prefer them to be on street so they don’t kick up dust on shoulders. Small town USA is awesome…just ask Jason Aldean!
I was holding out hope that your dealer was the correct outlier but that's starting to seem impossible.Still no update…will keep trying.
