How did you get into Quads?

Recommended Posts

I have been riding dirt bikes since I can remember. Decided a quad would be better for my wife though.

Just bought an ATV last year to give it a try. Have been dirt biking for years but have always been curious how much different an ATV is.

So far I love how much more I can get through. Rock crawling, mud running, deep puddles, the ATV is fun to tackle with.

The only thing I am not liking so far is how much more maintenance I need to do on an ATV compared to a bike...

Initially I was going to get a dirt bike, this was mainly because I was inspired to race dirt bikes this inspiration came from the movie "Motocrossed" at the time i was about 8 years old. For those people who don't know the movie, well its mainly about a girl who impersonates her crippled brother in order to give him the opportunity of corporate sponsorship. well my mother the wonderful caring mother that she was told me that i had to wait until i was 10 to get a dirt bike... well fast forward and we were on our way to the dealership.

 

sadly however the bike that i wanted and  at the price my mother could afford sold the same day we went back for it.  now after loosing interest and at the age of 15 my father bought a 95 polaris sportsman 400 and said that when I turned 16 i could ride it.  well i fell in love with it and in fact i am trying to bring the bike back to  working order of course after it sat for about 5-6 years....

When I was a young one my folks were heavy into "Rock hounding" so we'd go riding out in the middle of the desert looking for petrified wood and rocks. I rode on front of my dad's big old Suzuki before finally getting a hand-me-down 80's Honda with no shocks.

For me I like tinkering with off road toys, and about a couple of years ago bought a non running Yamaha Raptor 700R which I got to run.  Now I am going to be picking up soon a free 99 Bayou 200 which I am hoping to get running as well.

I have always been on street and dirt bikes.  But got a ranch a few years ago and picked up a Polaris Ranger.  That naturally lead me into an ATV about 18 months later.  No that I have it, its the one thing I ride the most and great for shores/work

Growing up in the country, riding ATVs was the only other thing to do other than fishing or swinging from a branch and dropping into the river.
