Brand-newbie: What should I buy?
Hi - just found this forum. I just bought a 26 acre piece of property up in the wine country of CA. Hilly, mostly forested with oak and madrone, not too much undergrowth. A few fire trails.
I would like a quad for utility use and fun. I'm NOT interested in racing or hot dogging, but I enjoy power. I have done a little dirt biking, a lot of street riding - but have NO quad experience.
My 12 year old will probably learn to ride this, maybe even my wife. And I need it for utility - I'm thinking I probably need a little trailer to haul chain saw, firewood, etc.
Is one of the smaller 250cc class machines enough? I'm assuming I want 4x4. What kinds of features should I look for? Any brand/model recommendations? Anything to AVOID? Where is a good place to find a used one - maybe only a year old.
Thank in advance!
