I had a '98 Sportman 1WD with a 750 in it. It was a blast to own and ride - I sold it because I have a BMW/CSM rig.

Another thumbs up for Sena SMH10 - works very well. I use a set of ear plugs - volume is high enough to hear with the plugs in! My daughters love them for music and chatting.

DB - nice setup for the winch. I opted for a winch-in-a-bag option as well. Rated 2500lbs and seems to work well. I thought portability was good for moving it from rig to rig.
