Default Best sport/trail ATV for a REALLY tall guy

What sport ATV'S are you really tall guys on out there? I am 6' 8" tall 250 lbs.

- 5% of the time I will be riding the dunes. I am a play rider and dont really drag much.
-45% of the time will be trail rides with my wife, 10 y.o son and 7 y.o daughter.
-50% will be fast riding with friends on twisty ATV trails and fire roads with sweeping turns. Generally moving between 20-50mph

For me, its all about comfort. Good ergonomics/comfortable fit and outstanding plush suspension ( I will probably go aftermarket suspension to get super plush. Axis, Elka, TCS.

Default Best sport/trail ATV for a REALLY tall guy

I would say either wait for the new Raptor 700 EFI or take a look at the TLD Predator. I know a lot of tall people like the Raptors and the 700 machine is really going to scream. On the other hand, the TLD Predator is a very comfortable ride. I've heard a few forum members say that the TLD shocks are nearly as good as Elkas.

I'm 10" shorter than you, so I don't know how the Predator will feel for you.
