Ok, I admit it, I have an addiction. My addiction does not produce the normal cravings that many experience such as alchohol, other women (I’m totally loyal to my wife, Mary), cigarettes (well, I dream of a 6 foot long cigarette occassionally, but refrain). My addiction is not about drugs, gambling, or even food (…well, let me rethink that last one). No friends, my addiction is all about ACCESSORIZING my motorized vehicles. I love to surf ebay looking for new accessories to sport up my Polaris ATVs, Polaris Rangers, or any kind of motorized toy such as a Harley Davidson. To me, finding little chrome trim accessories, led lights and other cool looking “bling” I can add to my toys is just about the most fun a guy like me could possibly dream of. It’s my hobby and I love it. I will even admit to you and the world, its a true addiction.
My addiction began when we moved out to Idaho in 1999. I started out with a huge interest in knife collections. I would search for the knives that held the greatest interest to me, and would then search for display cases if the knife collection didn’t include one. I filled my collection room to the gills with knives galore.
But as time passed, Mary and I began enjoying ATV trail riding more and more. Its a totally fun outdoor activity and we enjoy seeing the beauty of Idaho through our love for ATV trail riding. We also support the local ATV club, IdahoPathfinders, which works to clean trails and act as a voice for the people when our livelihoods and enjoyment are threatened by Travel Management Plans to close trails and keep us out of the National Forests.
In the early days of ATV ownership, I was basically purchasing the standard items for my ATV’s: saddle bags to carry gear, horns, special knobs and meters. When we traded in our six wheeler Polaris for our first Polaris Ranger though, something took hold of me and I became an accessories maniac. I began to purchase new accessories from my
research online, mostly through ebay, for the Ranger to sport it up real classy. From the rugged tires to LED lights and chrome trim, rubber mats and even a plastic film that would protect the finish from chips and scratches. As time
passed I found that when I upgraded to the next newest baddest coolest models, the thrill would drive me to find better, sportier, cooler accessories than before. UPS and the Postal Service are happy for my addiction. If obsessive behavior is common to addictions, my wife will tell you, I am absolutely passionate about finding the accessories that will outfit my Polaris Rangers better than ever before.
Where does this addiction take me? Well of course to a new upgraded model of Polaris Ranger. With the excitement of a kid at christmastime, I can hardly wait to gain delivery so that I can begin the odyssey of accessorizing a new toy, once again. Of course I took off some of the special accessories that I had custom made on my last Ranger before trailering it up to Cottonwood to be traded in. I’ve got a Stihl Chainsaw holder that my friend Dean made for me, that I treasure and a custom tool box that I would not relinquish.
I love to share my extreme knowledge about Polaris ATV’s and UTV’s as well as accessories to outfit a machine. I’m also very familiar with the requirements for new county and state laws enforced by our local Forest Service, and help people to understand the importance of these requirements when taking machines out on the trails.
Aside from my addiction to accessories, I’m passionate about the Polaris brand and one of my best friends is the salesman at the local Polaris Dealership, Todd Stenzel. If you’re looking for a Polaris Ranger, Razor or ATV, Todd at Buds Saw Service in Cottonwood idaho is the most knowledgeable, helpful, highly customer oriented salesman you could find.
