Re: good beginner quad?

If you have never ridden a quad I recommend looking at the honda 300ex or yamaha 350 raptor (was the warrior but now with a makeover and namechange. Both are reasonable starting machines and should fit your size. Im 6'3" 180 and have ridden my younger brothers 250ex and found the i was little cramped so the 300ex should be allright. Its best to keep one of these machines till you can rack up some experience. You should also save your money from hopping up and just buy a better more powerful sport quad in a couple years time.

yeah a 300ex would be a good starter.. I just wonder about your size. my buddy who is 6'7" had a 300ex and it was way to small for him.
