Good to hear, as an older gent I hear all the time about newbies wanting the fastest quad they can find. There are so many things that can go wrong at high speed that are beyond the control of the rider and the next thing you know someone is seriously injured or dead and everyone seems to think it only happens to others not me! My son is a paramedic in rural part of our state and unfortunately he gets far to many calls from atv accidents. Most common is inexperienced riders seeing how fast they can go. When a serious accident does occur it is never the fault of the rider, there is always an excuse such as..a tire blew out, or a deer ran out in front of me, or something happened to the machine. This used to happen a few times a year but each year it gets worse to where now it is a few times each month. The atv laws are getting more strict due to the carelessness of a few and the medical expenses for serious injuries is skyrocketing. Many people do not carry insurance on there atv, and many insurance companies do not cover your atv if riding on a public road so the hospitals end up eating these expensive costs. OK I will get off my soapbox now...just don't become a statistic, ride with extreme caution and be ready for anything as it will come when you least expect it!! Take your time and learn, yes learn to do it right! Good riding and be safe!
