Default what ride should i get? iv been deciding forever

     

on sunday i went riding with my friends XR100 and he on his brothers XR80. we got stuck in a swap and my chain fell off. i promised myself that i would stay away frtom chains!!! but now im thniking, (after its all over), that the chain only came off from improper tightening, true? a 400ex, a foreman 450es, a wolverine, a crf250 are my favourite bikes... theres trails here with a lot of mud, but i wouldnt go down them with a dirtbike. im thinking i should get the quad, the wolvy, the 450ES or the 400EX.... i want a quad with a clutch and that can wheelie, and i wanted shaft drive, (400ex is the exceotion)... i wanted some speed (50mphish), and most of all... reliability! i probably wouldnt dare jump a quad, jumping my buddies 99 bigbear 350 2x4 was heavy! i just want something to have fun on. and something with lots of torque. the wolverine or the 450ES or the 400ex.. i guess someone can help me thx

I'd say go with the 400EX. I think you'll appreciate how sporty it is over the other quads. It is a good wheelie bike and can easily pull over 50mph speeds. It will be decent for the mud as well. The other 2 quads are more towards work, although the wolverine is sportier. Definitely go EX!

Well from that list if you are looking for a quad then I would suggest the 400ex. Very reliable and dependable sporty machine.

However I think you might want to add a Raptor to your list as well, it is just as reliable, has better suspension, more power, and most of all reverse.

I really dig the raptors. It's the only quad that can come close to my YZ125 in a straight line race that I've come up against so far.

yeah thats true, I forgot the raptor. You should be able to find a good '01 at a decent price. Definitely a better quad than all of your choices.
