— Looking back at the December 2003 issue of Dirt Wheels —
The Kawasaki Mules, Polaris Rangers and John Deere Gators were tame, utility minded machines designed to help get chores done around the farm. Yamaha was the first to say, “Hey, why don’t we make one of those steering wheel machines with a more sporty attitude and able to get down the trail with the speed of a quad.” After building it and testing it, they liked it and decided to sell it.

Well, you can find out below by reading this “Blast From The Past” from the December 2003 issue of Dirt Wheels.
