Two riders vs. one

This is probably a dumb question, but I have to ask. I am wanting to purchase an atv and am looking at used machines. I would like a two seater, but I am looking at several single seat models. I have two young kids, ages 4 and 6 and would like to be able to take them on rides. I know manufactures recommend only one rider but I am looking for anyone who does ride with two on one seaters and have done it safely. Thanks

Re: Two riders vs. one

I ride with 2 riders. I started back in 1986 takeing
grandson for a ride to look at the cows and wildlife.
2003 summer vacation hauled two kawa 300 2x4 and 360 4x4
to Colorado. We rode the primitive trails in Rio Grande
Nat. above Chama Newe Mexico These trails a rugged and
not maintained. Slow and careful don't take chances.
When Trail gets to rough rider can walk till it gets
a bit safer.

Okay, okay, it's a different sort of vehicle but...
Safety first! Check out the Tomcar TM-4 (4-seater, buckets, 4-way restraint). www.tomcar.com

I think riding with two is fine, it's just when it comes to hills, and tight turns it can be alot more diffucult then when you were just my you self. When you ride by your self you know how to shift your body weight. Passanger riders tend to be clueless and just sit back the whole ride. This really affects turn and hill riding. More chances of fliping. Just tell your kids about shifting their body weight from one position to another. Do that, and you should be fine.

Re: Two riders vs. one

I've had this same dilema with my 6 1/2 yr old. The Tom car is great (used one in Moab) but it is very expensive. Finally settled on a LandPride 4x4 Treker NT as out of the sideXsides it is the narrowest allowing me to get into tighter trails. Uses a 20 HP Honda engine. It does have a roll-cage and seatbelts...
