Default 90cc for adult?

I bought a used Panterra 90 cc ATV for my son. I love the ATV. I fit pretty well on it and am satisfied with it's power. I'm considering buying another for myself. Am I going to overstress the motor by riding a 90cc myself. I weigh 220. Is there a reason I shouldn't be riding this size machine? My riding area is open farm land and a path through woods. I've had the current machine on this trail and it did okay.

If you enjoy it then ride it...Its way underpowered for a 220lb rider. If you had something bigger you would really have some fun...

Right now your boxing with no arms, get something that fits you and it will be a new life long passion!

I used to have a eton 90 for my kids but hell I rode it all the time and it would go anywhere. One problem is I like to jump it a little and blew out the rear shock. that was my fault though. The 90 has enough power to ride around for sure! Go for it!

It's going to get old fast for you, meaning way under power. Suspension will have very little if any play. You'll be much happier with a bigger atv. Either way your having fun with your son so congrats!!!

I would agree with most everyone here.
If it was me and I wanted to spend very little I would look for an older trailblazer 250 or Honda 250. The machine will fit you much better and a lot more power to pull you around and the suspension won't be maxed. and it's an ATV from a major brand.

The person that has the Panterra to sell also has a BMX 200. I might work out a deal to buy both. Then my wife, son and I could ride.

I ended up buying a Honda 300EX for myself. It does fit me much better than the Panterra 90 does! I got a great deal on the Honda and the 4wd is nice to have. The darn this does take up a lot of garage space though!
