  7. I thought all the manufacturers went to quad format because the tricycle format was so dangerous???

  8. yeah theres a bit of an art to riding them due to the live axle and with the ATC250R it has a CR250 engine in it so it constantly wants to flip over backwards no matter what gear your in so you gotta nail it to brake the traction and slide it while lying right into the corner.....it wants to go straight all the time i really had some nasty offs when i was younger....a common mistake is to put your foot out when it wants to tip over (when you corner)then what happens is the rear wheel runs over your foot and you get dragged off it and it runs you straight over and spits you out the back

    Hope you get some time off to enjoy the new wheels.

    Cheers

  11. No diff???
    That would be a pig to turn if you have traction. and just plain insanity once you throw traction to the wind.

    no bloody wonder they are unsafe (Apart from the whole tipping because they are a trike thing)

  17. Yup! :cool:

    I've got a Polaris Predator (see my Garage). Great fun, and the only place I lose out compared to the two-wheelers is through singletrack.

    Ylwgtr: If you get a chance, get out into some sand dunes with it. :cool: :grin:

  18. I reckon there more fun than an ATV as theres a challenge just staying on it....yeah the guy that i got it from used it in the dunes but i plan to mainly use it on motorcross tracks...until i get kicked off anyway :D
    i payed 4K for it....very hard to find indeed... i have been looking for about 3 years now....as always i shouldnt have sold the one i had
