i almost traded my juggy for a kawaski brute force 750 4x4, cause it would fit in my enclosed snowmobile trailer, and was easier to tow. i cant see buying a 2wd quad?
a dual sport motorcycle would be sweet, but my legs are too short to touch the ground on any new dual sport.

the trade was very tempting, im sure i would use it more than my juggy.
i do enjoy the juggy when i can use it!

That would have been a mistake but to have both would be fantastic.

those arent too bad in price another thing to consider the newer ones have reverse which is nice to have if you ride trails .. stockish EX's should be around 1500 hopped up ones can range from 2k-2500

Raptors suck. They may be wider but they are also 9" taller. But I've never ridden a fourwheeler before.

I am considering a trail bike and a quad, but one of these is for my son who doesnt have much time on either. I figure he would be better off with a quad so I should just get one too. BTW, Hanch has never ridden a quad. Ask me how I know..?...

Im not going to be riding this thing at the mounds, I live in NC, we have hundreds of miles of trails and mountains. We rented 4x4 quads a while back, I felt like we were riding a John Deere lawn mower thru the trails.

How old is your son?

The first dirty bike I ever rode was an old 4 stroke 250 punched out to a 280. It was fast and the power delivery was very predictable. Do you really want to tell your son you think he's one of the gays by buying him a four wheeler? You might as well just buy him a Walmart bicycle with training wheels. He won't get any trim ever with that either.

He is 19. He will be riding this thing when he comes to visit me in NC. Yes, I could buy him a dirt bike and hope it gets him laid and he doesn't crash, or we could just get quads and go riding and hope he doesn't end up with a male member in his mouth.

Looks like there are some good deals on Raptorsa too.

This one looks like a very good deal.

You've never used a tape measure before either.

I would rather see my son in a cast than with a dick in his mouth. Just my opinion though.

Srsly tho, dirt bikes aren't that difficult if your not fucktarded.

I grew up on quads and I've never had a male member in my mouth. Really. Grew up on a Honda, I would spend more for a Honda after the years of pure abuse I put ours through (sled pulling, jumping, full throttle racing stupidity). Around 14 my dad and me went out on the trails on low end Kawasaki 2wd utility quads, I upgraded to a sporty utility quad and I never liked it. I rode those utility quads way too hard and it was an effort to have fun. I always wanted a clutched 4wd sport quad. Do they make that? I would recommend one if they do....:thumbup:

The first one is a 250. It's a kids quad, no power, and bad suspension,
