TCARTER the new dude on the site

Recommended Posts

whats up guys/gals and those undecided. i'm 25 a medically retired Marine. now working/living in Raleigh NC i currently ride a 2007 GSXR 750 that i'm trying to sell and get a QUAD. Today was my first time riding one and it was my neighbors utility honda it's a 300 something. I have it narrowed down to 3 quads now

1 Raptor 700

2 YZF 450

3 Quadracer 450

I will be doing mostly joy riding. open dirt areas, open wooded trails and a few drag races back yard style nothing sanctioned.

i really like the 450's but will i get smoked by the 700 raptor?

If i had to choose tonight i would go with the quadracer 450 is it a good machine i've heard that if i want to do a little trail riding with it i will need bigger tires is that true

Welcome to the site, the raptor is a beast and if it's your first quad I would go with the 450.

Unless you feel confident, try to see if you can ride one first from a friend or dealer.

      As we close the 2014 year and plan for 2015, we have decided to shut down a few sections here on QUADCRAZY. Effective immediately, we are closing our Blogs, Groups, Events, Polls, Photo Battle, Quiz, and Music sections. These are not widely used by our community and often attract spammers. Any questions and posting should be primarily made in our forum section as we move forward.
      In 2015 we will focus on making sure our forum continues to be the primary spot for our members to gather, ask questions, and share their ATV experiences. We are also exploring ways to update our community to newer and more up to date platforms as technology is changing, mobile connectivity is growing, and some of our sections are not as "mobile friendly" as we would like.
      It's been about 10 years now for QUADCRAZY, we're looking for another great 10 years to come. Please continue to support us by visiting www.quadcrazy.com and participating in our forums.
      Thank you and Happy Holidays from the QUADCRAZY family to yours!
