I own a toy hauler and ride my crf450r in the desert. I bring people along from time to time and it's unrealistic to hope people will pick up riding a dirt bike with little to no experience. So I figured I'd buy a quad and bring it along. I know I'll ride it too periodically. I don't need a raptor 700 or banshee or anything I recall thinking was a beast. I also don't want something that leaves you feeling like it is a damn dog. If you ride dirt bikes I think it'd be like an adult jumping on a crf150f and opening the throttle. Slow... dog... fun if it's all you can use? I guess... I also want to do this as cheaply as possible. Looking local in SoCal I see trx400ex for 1700-2200 area. Do you think this is a good quad? Any different direction I should go? Any gotchas to know for the 2002-2004 area? Thanks!
