Alrighty I have been reading this board for awhile now (lost my ID) over on the Chevy board, I will be paying off the truck soon so I am looking at a quad actually there are 3 of us going to buy pretty soon.
My brothers (2) are dead set on 4x4 1 wants Polaris the other wants a kawi, I on the other hand are contemplating a bunch of different quads.
I am 6' 185 pounds (from what I have read you want all the info. I can give so..)the riding I am looking at doing I can't find a quad to fit.
I am pretty sure no quad that I have read about is a perfect fit but there are some good ones I do want a 4 stroke for durability they seem to be more reliable that's where it stops, I want to be able to keep up on the same trail as the 4x4's since I will ride with them the most but there are some banshee's running around really close and 1 Honda 400 EX that I know of that ride a lot and it looks hella-fun.
The riding I will be doing is some farm fields, river sand pretty good size hills but at least 4 times a year in the Colorado Mountains elk hunting (plus deer hunting around our place, snow cold that kinda thing) and that type of riding around my house (summer time) in the sand hills and farm mud pits I wouldn't want a 4x2 to get stuck but I want good speed and air time with some hills being great for jumping but yet I want the go anywhere 4x4 to keep up with the others in the group (know one likes to suck hind ,,,) No reverse for the 400 EX has got to get old but the no wheel travel or very limited of a 4x4 can't be any fun.
Also I snow is a major factor since October till April is pretty much all snow here.
What kind of suggestions do you guys have ?
I notice the wolverine is a sport until type quad but will a 300 cc keep up with a 500 Polaris ?
Thanks for your help
