I am looking for some advice as I consider buying an ATV.
First off, I've never even ridden one before, but am looking for a hobby to enjoy with my 5 year old son as he gets bigger. For the last 5 years, I have been racing cars on road courses around the Midwest but this is really my hobby and doesn't do much for my son. Plus the racing takes a Lot of time and money and just takes me away from the family too much.
In general, I'm 45 years old. Although speed is obviously something that interests me, I am wise enough to know that I am a complete newbie and have no interest in breaking my neck. In my head, at this point, I have my son and myself learning to ride at the same time and us going out on some trails. I would love for the wife to get into it but that will take some convincing. I don't own a ranch or a farm and I have a 47" snowblower for the john deere so I don't think I need anything ultra utilitarian.
I am looking for advice on age and brands of used atv's I should be considering. I saw a post on craigslist for a 2007 Yamaha grizzly that looked sporty but also a little utilitarian but, to be honest, I have no idea of what I'm doing so it is nothing more than a guess.
For my son, I was looking at getting a little Chinese brand for a few years until he is older. I saw one that even has a keyfob that let's you disable it remotely. My wife really liked that feature.
All help is appreciated.
