THE 35,000 MILE RZR
It’s normal to develop a relationship with your UTV. You overcome obstacles together, share adventures together and create memories that can last a lifetime. A traveling companion you can rely on creates a special bond. The experience Dan and Janie Wayne of Gassaway, West Virginia, have had with their 2009 Polaris RZR is more than special, it’s extraordinary. The Waynes have driven their RZR almost 36,000 miles!
THE BEGINNING OF A LONG RELATIONSHIP
The Waynes purchased the 35,000 mile RZR which they now call “Ole Girl,” new in 2009 and immediately fell in love with its dependability and the adventures it took them on. Dan, 69, a Vietnam War veteran and retired coal miner, says that, “No matter what kind of jam I put it in, it always got me out.” Janie, 64, said it’s “The best investment we’ve ever made,” as its longevity has astounded them.
NO SPECIAL CARE
All the Waynes have done to make their RZR last is “take good care of the Ole Girl” with normal, regular maintenance as described in the machine’s owner’s manual. The machine is garaged, but they don’t do anything unusual. Janie Wayne says the machine gets driven “for lots of country miles and sightseeing, but not for horseplay or extreme mud riding.”
A SURPRISE AT ALMOST 36,000 MILES
Ole Girl has served as an outlet for the Waynes to get out and enjoy life together, and they’ve enjoyed the vehicle so much, they’ve put nearly 36,000 miles on it. Along the way, they’ve made countless memories exploring their small town and scenic back roads of West Virginia with rides as far as 164 miles in their RZR. For years, the Waynes regularly rode 120 miles at a time, and they still average 70 to 100 miles per ride. Polaris was so moved by their story that they had to act, and ultimately decided to go out to meet the Waynes in West Virginia and surprise them with an all-new RZR for the Waynes to make another 36,000 miles’ worth of adventurous memories. The new vehicle—a RZR S 900—came fully customized with doors, roof, a winch, and front and rear bumpers to match their beloved “Ole Girl.”
