Wife\'s bike

I'm thinking about a quad for my wife, and want some opinions. She had a y2k 300ex, but just cant get the hang of the clutch. So any thoughts have to be geared to auto clutch or auto trans. Her riding will be split 50/50 between trails and dunes. She is a total novice and not aggressive at all. Any ideas are appreciated, especially if you have experience with this type of quad. Thanks for the input.

No experience with it, but mabye a Polaris Scrambler, 400 or 500? They seem pretty cool, especially for and auto.

Re: Wife\'s bike

I have a Polairis Trailblazer for those in my family who cant use a clutch, they all seen to enjoy it, I personaly think it lacks alittle in the power department, but then again I ride a Raptor and a Banshee, the Trailblazer is compatable to the power of a Blaster, so if you think thats not enough I would go with the scrambler 400

You should buy her the new honda 250ex semi automatic and an automatic clutch.

Re: Wife\'s bike

i would first recommend a Polaris Trailblazer, its a 250cc 2 stroke. like the others have said if you dont think thats enough, look into a Scrambler 400 or 500, but if she is riding a 300ex right now, i would say she could do good on the Trailblazer. hope this helps.

Re: Wife\'s bike

the trailblazer obviously lacks the top end speed of the 400 and 500 scramblers but the steering is quite a bit lighter making it very pleasant during trail riding. if she isn't aggressive and wouldn't miss the speed, she would probably enjoy the trailblazer.
