I finally got my King quad 750 with Power steering. Its really a great feature. The 500s came out a few months ago. I fianlly found a 750 last Saturday. The power steering is worth every penny IMO.

Here are a few pics of my 750.

One of the first mods I do to all my machines it to upgrade the tires and rims. Here are a few pics of the 750 with 25" Bighorns and ITP black type 7 rims.
