Paulie420 10 Posted January 1, 2008 First, I'd like to say howdy from Arizona! Our weather is finally perfect for getting out and enjoying without burning up, and I am ready to enjoy it! I don't know a lot about the sport of ATVs at all. I do ride street bikes, and own a Harley and a Metric. I recently rented a few ATVs and a Rhino. I am pumped. I rented a 2006 Rhino, 2006 Honda 400ex, and a 2006 Honda --- Semi-Auto non-sporty ATV. Had electronic shift. I really had a blast on the Honda 400ex. It seemed fast, nimble, fun, and fairly safe. It didn't feel like TOO much quad. So - I guess my first questions are what should a smart, hardcore, amateur be looking for in a first ATV? Is the Honda 400ex a good choice? Buy new or used? If used, buy the best I can afford first or get an older junker to start on? Anyone around Phoenix? Know of Arizona specifics? Is there a Used Buyers Guide link to send me to??? I wanna get a GOOD ATV. Ok, too many questions to start. So I'll stop. Your site looks nice, and I hope I get a bunch of feedback! Rock N Roll!
