Clued up rider looking for 1st Quad

I can drive quads. Loads of hours. I've taken tons of tests on skills on an ATV (and scored perfectly every single one). I'm a big guy 6'0, 230lbs. Things is i'm 14 (15 in 7 days). I know I can handle a higher power quad that 90cc. Just wanted your views about that? [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
I think i', looking for a 250 maybe, but being 15 I don't have alot of funds (1500, I'm English). Where do I start?!
Looking for Woods and trail riding.

Cheers,

Joe

200lbs buy a 400ex! or a 400 cc or higher fourwheeler. Age dosen't matter size and experiance does. [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]

Re: Clued up rider looking for 1st Quad

[img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] Hi there just thought i would put my 2 cents on this, for you. If you are experinced at riding then go for what you think that you would like to ride for a long while. For i think you would just be wasting your money on any thing else. Start looking in the ads and on the internet for buys. There are all kinds of ways of finding what you may be happy with. Good Luck in what ever you decide. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Just adding the Arctic Cat version of the Z400, which is supposed to be on the showroom floors within the next 90 days or so . It might be getting some special plastic, instead of using the same molds as the KFX/Z plastic, and is going to be black . [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
