Hi everyone- first of all I am very new to the site, as well as very new to ATV's in general, and I could use some straightening out on this matter as I've had conflicting info given...
Im thinking about getting 99 Mojave on craigslist for $800, and they were going to deliver to me as well which seemed nice (im about an hour away, we're both in IL). Well everything was fine, quad looked good, said it ran well but was cold blooded, and they are throwing in extra tires, frame, & shocks (they said shocks would need replaced soon) -Honestly I am not sure whether that alone is a decent deal or not, so an opinion on that would be welcome too.
Anyway, real problem raised when I asked about a title: said they didn't have one, it wasnt necessary. Well, talking to a friend he said if I ever want to take it out to any parks or anything I'll need to have it registered and get a public access sticker. Said if the guy doesnt have a title I should get a bill of sale and have the guy email me the vin number so I could double check it wasnt stolen- when asked the guy about the vin and he got incredibly annoyed, said he works 12hr days and doesnt have time to check if it's even visible, and if the deal was off because of that then so be it... That's where we left off...
So please, as Im very new to all this any educated opinion would be so welcome and greatly appreciated! I really don't want to make another move before I hear some advice from someone who knows what's what and am stuck in a bind until then
Please let me know what you think, and thanks so much guys for helping this super-newbie!

I am going to buy my girlfriend a used ATV but don't really know what to get, as she is fairly short. She has no experience what so ever.
I ride a Renegade 800 so she needs something that can "keep up" with that style of ride.
4x4 (being stuck is no fun, especially for a new rider)
Belt driven (she is a city girl and the concept of shifting something does not come naturally)
$2k - $5K
