All depends on what you are looking to do. Hunting? Mudding? Dual sport? Let me know if I can be of any help.

yea they have issues if you cant ride for . thats what atvs are for, people who cant ride a dirtbike.

There really is no comparison. Dirtbikes, way faster, funner, can go any place a 4 wheeler will go thats worth going and a lot of places that they cant.

4wheeler.....i got nothin, you wont ever catch me on one.

If its fun and adventure youre after, its dirtbike all the way.

just depends on you as the rider. I have always pushed it to extremes on quads..so whoever says they are boring..go jump a 100' flat triple on one then come back and say the same thing.
