Another new toy

OK - this year I've gotten an 07 JKU, a new rifle, a new computer, and was given a 4-wheeler (Honda Rancher). After riding it a bit, I got hooked. So, yesterday I went out and bought another Honda 4-wheeler - a 400EX - it pretty well matches the other. I gotta stop with the toys.

Pics.



This thing is a hoot. Wife and I took a ride today before I went to work (while the kids were at school). She took the Rancher, and I took the new sled. Mucho fun.

Now I gotta find a bigger trailer to haul them both on.

Looks nice. My cousins step-daughter just died on one of those things. Please be careful.

no more dangerous then any other toy or vehicle as long as you follow the rules and use your head.

ive been riding them for years without any injuries. however several of my friends have hurt themselves by riding them after a couple beers while camping, not wearing helmets - general stupidity. i always wear a helmet, never drink at all while using one and keeps my eyes open and am aware of what terrain i am riding.

(not saying in any way at all that the cousins step daughter was. please dont take thet wrong)

I have watched close friends hurt themselves on dirt bikes basically because they were being stupid and were pushing the limit too far too fast. I think my self-preservation gene is a little more active than that. I got safety equipment with it, but should get some more stuff as I can afford it and I start playing a little harder.

In fact, when I went to test drive (ride?) some of their ATVs, one that I test drove had just been repaired after a 19 year old killed himself on it (novice rider, tried a huge jump with no helmet while drinking - DTR). I also resisted the temptation to get the biggest / fastest one I could. Again, I've just watched too many people hurt themselves puching it too hard before they were ready.

With that said - every time I ride this I like it more.

I find myself look at the 90 and 150cc ones just to ride around the small piece of property we have.

Honda had a shaft-driven 250 sport model that would be great for that. A 90 or 150 would be a bit small for an adult.

Wife and I went out riding again today - these things are a hoot.

Much fun! I had a 185 3-wheeler for years, never got hurt, but they had to stop making them because of idiots. It was amazing the places that thing would take me!

4-wheelers are so much fun, I flipped one over tho and hyper extended my wrist, it hurt. =(

TIP: When flipping over don't put your hand out like its going to stop you from flipping, it wont.

toys

You can never have to many toys, I was sitting around thinking about how much a new set of 33 bfg mt's was gonna cost me and I relized that the last set of tires I bought for my Poaris cost me over $600.00 for tires and rims so the bfg's don't sound so bad after all. Remember if you leave all your money for your survivors they are gonna blow it anyway

rollover

One other thing for all of you to know, riding is like swimming never do it alone. I rolled my Polaris over on me, stuck down in the woods with a 500 pound + four wheeler on me, doubled over no cellphone or anybody around. Layed there for awhile thinking about what kind of trouble I was in, got pissed off because of my mistake. I guess God just gave me enough strength to push it off of me with my legs, but it scared the crap out of me. So if you ride alone take your cell or a two way. Just remember you can get hurt doing anything,so at least let be something fun!

Yea, my friends kinda looked back and yelled at me "are you ok?" I was like " YEa I guess" and I flipped my hand back over, my fingers were touching my forarm. I was amazed it dident break anything.

By the time I got home my wrist was the size of a football tho.
