Re: thinking of buying some quads
What a perfect post. I too had quads back in the day and sold them due to financial hardships. After a good 12 year hiadus, I decided to return to the ATV realm. I started off with a Recon (Honda 250 utility) for work around the house and trail riding. I bought a Foreman (Honda 450 utility) for Search and Rescue and more intense trail riding. It is a 4X4 and has low gearing for trail riding, mountain climbing and does very well around the house pulling trailers, discs, and drags.
I have decided to look into a TRX450R for the next quad. I like the Foreman, but I have the need for some speed and suspension. I have started retuning to the dunes and would like to have something a bit more peppy in the dunes. Dont get me wrong, the Foreman in 4by will climb any dune out there, just a lot slower than everyone else...
THe big problem that I ran into (as probagbly most people) where do you get a quad to test drive where you ride to see if you like it and it does what you want it to do. Try to get a friend to let you ride their quad and see what you like the best. I like the utility quads for the million uses that they have, but I do miss the speed...
