quad decision time?

Ok i'm looking to purchase a used quad. But I have a problem b/c I can not decide what i want. I am 6'4" and 220 pounds. I want something that is fast(and that I can make faster with more money), something that i can trail ride with, and something that can still handle a motorcross track and freestyle ramps. I think I have narrowed it down to either a yamaha warrior, or an old honda trx 250r, maybe a banshee. (i really want the new yamaha 450, but can't afford it right now) Anyone out there with opinons, please help.

I would have to agree with everybody else about the 250R being the best choice out of those quads you listed, however you might feel a little cramped on it since you're 6'4. If you get one you might look for one of the taller desert seats, and a handle bar riser to give you more room. You also left out the 400ex which has a little more room than the 250R and also has a lot of available mods. The Raptor handles great once you add some suspension mods, and the torquey 660 engine does well with a larger rider such as yourself. Good Luck with your decision.
