Thats the only reason I got the 650 max was for the lady and 5 year old. I have 400 miles on it and they drove 350 of them. I ride my 2005 arctic cat 500 or 2005 Predator. The 650 is a real nice quad but its no where close the cat is in the technical stuff and mud. it sure is fast, comfortable, and real sporty for a ute quad. Its a lot of fun to drive and no big complaints here.Same here Hoopie, love my CAT, but will be adding a 650 max shortly for the wife and son.
