Default How big is a LT230s

So I'm thinking about buying an 86 LT230s and looked up the dimensions of it and it seems pretty small for me, I am 5'9 160 lbs. It is 71 inches in length, seat sits 31 inches off the ground and is somewhere around 43 inches talk if I remember correctly. Is this more of a kid sized quad? Or am I just really used to utility your wheelers?

Default If I remember correctly, kinda like a blaster sized quad

It will be plenty big enough at 5'9". i'm 5'7' and never had a problem on the 230. I had a blaster recently and I think they are close in size. You can lengthen
swing arm and widen it for a better stance on the ground if you feel the need.

It is far from a kids quad, but no where near the size of a modern utility. At 5'9" you should be fine, or just a bit cramped. I would try it out first if at all possible.

Definitely get some seat time before committing to buying. I considered buying a Z250 a few years ago but it was just too small for me. I'm 5'11" myself. A Blaster seems really tiny too. The speed of the Blaster benefits from being really small and lightweight but its pretty cramped for someone my height or taller.
