Re: Kids wheeler advice sought
Don't get me wrong....e-ton sounds like a good machine. The only problem is that I've never heard of it, which probably means that there aren't many dealers around, which also means that it's going to be difficult to get your hands on one and even harder to get it fixed if something happens. The way I would do it, which is the way my father did it ten years ago, is to get the small Honda quad. Back then, it was a 70cc. I think they only make 90cc quads now - still good. They're all 4-stroke and they're Honda's, which means you never EVER have to service them. It's not automatic, but it does have clutchless shifting which is a good way for a child to learn how everything works(manual transmissions, etc). The Honda may also be more expensive, but they have long proven their reliability. I just sold my 70cc not too long ago and still runs the same way it did in the late 80's - even though I haven't changed the oil since some time in 1989.
