Hope the year is starting off well for all! Trying to get a quad, and having a hard time determining what's going to be the best for my use. I'm 5'6" and 145 pounds. I'm in Oregon, and we have sand and lots of trails here, so I'd like to get a bike that's going to be good all around, and preferably not have to work on it every time I take it out, as I don't yet have the experience to just know what needs to be done. Initially I was set on a YFZ450, but honestly that choice had more to do with seeing what people riding at the dunes like. Now I'm reading that they don't like going slow, which could be a bad thing for some trails? Real quick, my girlfriend's 8 year old is getting a dirt bike at the same time, so I'm going to be going slow some times. I don't need the fastest bike around, but I do want something zippy for when I need it. Lastly, prices seem to be pretty high right now, seeing used quads costing more than a brand new one. First time getting one, I was hoping to only spend a a couple grand, but ones in the 450 range seem to be quite a bit more expensive than say the 300 range, although I don't want to go too small and end up selling it in a year. Please give me some input!
