I've got a Honda 450ES. I don't really care for the ES though. I had the battery go dead on me once because I used the winch too much and got stuck in reverse because there wasn't enough power left to shift.

To tell you the truth I suck and have never had it that muddy. I ride it off road but it has always been dry so no mud and we mainly use them in Wyoming when we go Deer Hunting near Devil's Tower. It is November then so everything is frozen. So we are in snow more than mud out West. So I can't give you a good answer on if it would get jamed up with mud. I guess it could happen. My winch problem happened because I used to have a plow on it. I got rid of that and now have a 4x4 John Deere Tractor for plowing the driveway. That does a better job anyhow as I can put more weight on the blade and hit the diff lock to push snow.

If you ever have this or any problem with the es there is a manual shift lever in the tool kit. The only problem it's a slip on and it falls of to easy when you actually need it

Yes that is true. I think in the future I don't think I would go with the ES though because of this. I would rather have the S and deal with the rare case where you might get high centered on something and are having a hard time shifting. In that case you could always use a winch to pull you off of what ever is hitting your shifter.

The new Foremans have a full floorboard. So even if you high-center, you'll still be able to shift.

On the old Foremans, I ran into that problem. You'd get high-centered on a tree, and it would push the shifter up. To get it to pop into reverse, you'd basically have to pick up that side of the wheeler.
