One thing I am realizing it is not going cheap to get into this....

Thanks again

Yep Cornelia aint far at all from me, I actually live in Hartwell.
Yes Locust Stake is very dangerous, a kid got killed there bout 5 years ago from a head-on.
My Priarie is a 4x4, I forgot to mention.
Broad River Atv was a cool place but they closed at the first of the year, dont know why. Durhamtown is supposed to be a good place but I have never been.
Let me know when you get one and we'll have to go ride sometime.

John

Thanks for the info, John. I may have to look into a prairie 360 because I have no clue which ATV to get. Someone recommended the Polaris 500s so that has been mostly what I have been looking at and they seem a little more expensive.
Anyway I am going to Durhamtown Saturday and rent whatever they have for a day and see how I like this hobby before putting alot of dough into it (just bought a sportbike).

Thanks again
Jim

Hello again, Check out all the brands you can get access to, to see what you like the most. Don't just take someone's word for it when it come to a particular brand. Different brands offer different stuff to suit different people. Also that will give you a better idea of the kind of power you are looking for. Check out a dealer if you have one close to you. Nothing like going for a test ride to help make up your mind!! Good luck in your search!!!

Thanks HawkeyeRider!!! you have a good point I hope I get to try a few different ones this weekend at Durhamtown and I do have the dealer close to me and I think they would let me buzz around on a few unfortunately they dont have any dirt there.

Are there any particular years/brands that have issues I should stay away from??? I am looking pretty much between 2001-2006 between a 360-500

Thanks in advance

Thanks for the welcome everyone. I am just going to lurk around the boards a bit and try to gather and learn as much as possible because there are so many options and opinions of what to get I think it will help me on my search for the right 4 wheeler...

I am sure I will have a bunch of questions for everyone once I get closer to buying ....

Thanks again
JimT
