Spotlight on State 8

When folks in Medina county head off-road, they usually head to State 8 Motorcycle and ATV first. State 8 has been a leader in the ATV and UTV business longer than any other dealer in the county and also boasts the most popular and innovative brand: Polaris. Whether you’re looking to get a job done with a workhorse UTV on your acreage, or simply seeking family fun, State 8 has the vehicles to fit the bill. Owner Paul Compton is part of a family with motorcycles and ATVs running in their blood. In fact, both his brother Kirk and dad Gar are part of an operation that represents two dealerships and carrying nine different brands. But Polaris is the one that most seek when they want an ATV or the new extremely popular side-by-side (also known as SxS and UTV) off road vehicles. State 8 Polaris features a lineup of side-by-sides that are great for adventure seeking families, with models that can transport up to six passengers through the trails! Polaris side-by-sides  are the industry leader in both sales and innovation.

“Polaris gives a buyer the features they want at the best value,” explains Compton. “When you need a vehicle to take camping, work on your pond, haul firewood, and plow your drive, Polaris will have a model that is a perfect fit without compromise.”

Many professional businesses choose Polaris because of their durability and dependability, including one organization that really means business—the U.S. Armed Forces. Polaris ATVs are the choice of hunters and recreational ATV riders too, with the famous Sportsman models leading the pack. The Sportsman is great for “around the property” jobs and plowing too. On the UTV side of the aisle, Polaris has introduced a new best seller, “The General,” featuring power steering, 100 horsepower and many more innovative ride-enhancing features.

A big advantage that State 8 has is that with their brisk sales volume they carry a wide variety of Polaris ATVs and UTVs in stock at all times. State 8 also accepts trade-ins of any brand ATV, motorcycle or scooter to make your deal the best one possible. Another option is one of many used ATVs or UTVs on State 8’s showroom floor, all inspected for safety bumper to bumper, top to bottom, by the State 8 crew. Beyond sales, State 8 in Medina also features a complete service center with expert technicians that are experienced on repair and maintenance of all makes and models of ATVs, Motorcycle and UTVs. You’ will also find an extensive parts and accessories selection. What is not in stock can easily be ordered for installation or over the counter purchase. Fully enjoy your fall and get ready for winter… or just add some fun to the family line-up with a new or used Polaris from State 8!
