Can Adults Ride Polaris RZR 170?

Author : Efrain Silva

Want to be able to ride along with your kids on this bad boy, and help make their experience even better, not to mention being able to give them the full comfort and reassurance you know that they deserve, all at the same time (since they’ll be at ease knowing their parent is there to guide them and keep them feeling safe at all costs)? We’ve all asked this question, at some point, us proud RZR 170 owners, and it is not a bad one to ask or ponder….we are going to take a brief look at a few unique aspects so that you can be better prepared and make the right decision for your family and its many needs. So, like a kangaroo, let’s hop on to it….

Can Adults Ride Polaris RZR 170?

First of all, a thing you want to always think about, especially in this scenario, is weight. Now, from what I saw on this product, one of the used online manuals said that the maximum weight limit is ideally not to be exceeded (when you account for yourself, and every child you will have in the 170 with you, totalled to a near estimate) : 350 lbs. In an ideal world (and it never really is, believe me on that, you just have to adjust as you go and roll with the punches in each situation), you want to stay within that 300 - 350 lb. range, give or take a couple pounds here and there. This might be a good time to go up to the family attic, dust off that old weight and scale, or whatever you have that works, and take everyone’s weight measurements (including yours — don’t be shy). And if it’s time to start putting off that favorite cherry cobbler dessert each evening, in order to meet the quota, then so be it!

Now, if you and your spouse, on another note entirely, have the day off (as if, right?) and wish to take a ride around the area, you may still do so, in most cases (considering the total weight for the both of you stands at under 350 lb., like I said, give or take a couple pounds). There’s no shame in it. I have actually researched forums and found that several adult couples do so, and often, noting how fun their 170 can be when the kids aren’t around, heh heh. We’re all kids on the inside, I say.

Also, you might want to keep in mind that putting strobes on those headlights is also a popular option as well, and it can help, depending on the time of day or area you find yourself driving around in. It’s not a “do or die” factor but just something to keep in mind, of course. But more than anything, have fun! Remember that the experience is only as good or as bad as you make it, and you alone, in the end, determine what it’ll be.
