Awesome!

I love bikes- Was originally going to get a CRF150F for me, but then dad saw the bombardier and realised he would rather spend the money on a high quality quad that can do alot more than a bike.

If I had the choice now I still would of bought the quad though- even if bikes contain a little bit more fun.

I made the transition from bike to ATV a couple of years ago. When I moved to New Mexico, I realized that the sand here is a lot of work on a dirt bike so I switched. Still miss the old XR600R but not enough to go and buy another one.

yea we have a few good riding areas for dirt bikes around my house, some abandon sand pits and such and about 15 minutes from where i live is a motocross track which you can practiceon if you want and they just put in a utility atv course in
the reason i bought the dirt bike was because i love riding my motorcycle (2004 Yamaha R6) but im sick of dodging careless drivers on it and its taking some of my fun out of it.. well once we get a little warmer weather her in ny ill have to give you my ride report on it.. ill post pics tonight when my brother gets home, he knows a lot more about comps than i do...

Here are our Honda's. We probably ride our bikes more than our quads. Quads are good for sand and loose stuff, but there is nothing like a dirt bike for those desert and mountain trails!

I have a ton of respect for the single track. Takes a lot of talent and hard work to ride one well, I used to ride here and there, but prefer quads because I'm old and broken down.

I used to have bikes, sold them all a few years ago. I had an 89 KX80(first bike), and was very fun, and very fast for an 80. Next I had a 74 Yamaha DT100MX, without a doubt the most reliable bike I owned, started 1st kick every time, and in the 4 years I owned it, never had to clean the carb, or even change the plug. The last bike I had was an 84 RM125, bought it for 300$, put about 125$ into rebuilding the engine, worst machine I had owned by far, broke almost every single time I rode it, not to mention I got smoked by my brother on my old KX80. But it turned out good, I sold it to a guy down south for $1000, so I made out pretty good, which made a nice down payment on my Outlander 400MAX. Once I got 4 wheels under me, I dont think I'd go back to dirt bikes, especially since most of the riding in these parts is in mud.

I import the image into paint and use the "sketch/skew" to reduce the size. Then I save it under a different name so I don't lose the original.
