TRX400 vs TRX300 vs Banshee



Okay all you quad guys. My girlfriend is wanting a quad, I have my CR250.` I know she'll want a Banshee, but she is pretty much a beginning rider, but has ridden all of the above more than 5 times each. I want to buy her the Banshee, but at the same time, I don't want her killing herself. If you're girls/wives ride, let me know what they're on, and opinions are welcome. Also, info on maintenance and durability on the Hondas would be appreciated. Have a great weekend, and keep our heads up in our countrys current defining moment.

Um....you mean 400ex and 300ex? I rode a honda 250r today with a 300 cc kit, and that thing was SWEET man...But that thing wasn't exactly a begginer quad either. 400ex's are sweet, usable four stroke power, definatly get her a four stroke to start with, tell her get good on that, and then you'll take her to test drive a banshee mabye?

400EX, unless she wants a quad with reverse, then maybe a warrior, better bike then the 300EX imo, happy hunting. Marc

Kyron-

She can kick over my CR, and she can also kick over my friends 426. Kicking is not a problem. I think you need to chill on the lack of intelligence, it doesn't impress people.

Re: TRX400 vs TRX300 vs Banshee

I have a Warrior and I love it, but I want more...
I am thinking of possibly getting a Banshee myself.
Oh well.

Re: TRX400 vs TRX300 vs Banshee

Shat then get her the Banshee if shes going to really enjoy it !!!

relax on the wise cracks eh? Dude your on the dirtbike form, ask that on the 4 wheel& Atv form. To me and many other dirtbikers quads are play things. If your girlfriend wants to ride get her a XR250??

Re: TRX400 vs TRX300 vs Banshee

Thats a good idea, dude...
Lets talk about dirtbikes, like which one should I get.
I sold the CR80 last year and would like another bike, but NOT an 80. I mean, it was a decent size (height), but like the Warrior, I wanted more.
The CR125 is so damn tall, tho. All these bikes are tall.
I don't want to ride a kids bike just cuz I'm short, cuz I'm not kid sized in any other way, cept my attention span and patience.
I'm willing to modify the bike to fit me a little better, but there's only so much I can do.
Oh well.
This is someone else's question post, so he's prolly gonna tell me to shove off and start my own.

Re: TRX400 vs TRX300 vs Banshee

DIRTY, there is a kid like 15 where i go that rides a rm250. when he stands he barley has room between his butt and the seat. when sitting on the bike his knees are barely bent,kinda funny. i will have too full throttle up hilss and he just burr, burr, burrrr. he has to stop next to rock to get off. why dont you get a kx100 or a 125 and move the forks up in the trip clamps and shave the seat foam. and shace the fork spring???? you ride in sand right? so who care if you have to dump the bike to get off.or put a big bore kit on a cr80 big wheel.
