Re: 3 wheeler VS Quad
Hey man, I was just in your situation, my neighbors had a 84' honda 250R 3 wheeler, for $250, runs but beat up, so I took it home but didnt paying for it yet, seeing what I could do with it, my school work has to be good in order for me to buy it. I love the way it handles, slides around turns, fast, real fun to ride, not only are the cheaper in cost, but generally parts are cheaper, one less tire to buy, no A arms or J arms, no front shocks or anything else to worry about. I admit I also rolled it the first time riding it, doing about 8mph and trying to turn sharp, got up on 2 wheels, scared the crap out of me, handed it back wearily, but the second time i rode it, i leaned to the side and it whipped right around the turn!, I cant imagine good tires and chain & sprockets! Now its sitting in my garage, I cant imagine not having it, I can fly through hayfields that were previously plowed that have lots of ruts, I've been able to get it pinned in 5th flying through them it handles so good! another cool thing is if you were to it a bump with the front wheel, the forks would take it up instead of having a front wheel on a 4 wheeler hit it and almost bounce off it and head in the other direction like ive done with a old quadracer 500, real scary! I think my 250r is pretty nimble too. just have to remember theres only 1 wheel up front so you have to be carely jumping, it likes to tilt in the air. what ever you get have fun, later man!
Now quad guys, dont think I'm ripping on 4 wheelers, I dont have the dough being 15 and wanting something racey, after all I'm not spending $3000 for the ****tiest 88' 250r in my area, gotta love the rusty fmf plantinum pipe, motor covered with crap and junk, on top of the skidplate under the motor was covered in soaked and oily grass, did i mention it had extra rims with it? came with nice BALD tires! -Mike
