they are fun as hell, I have a big red and I think with the big tires on 3 wheelers they would own 4 wheelers in the really sloppy stuff. never got it stuck and parts of my property looks like a lake during the mud season :lol: I'm going to restore and repaint mine this summer.

I had a Honda 200S when I was a kid, wasn't actually mine, but my Dad's buddy left it at the house and I could ride it whenever I wanted. Had a lot of fun tearing up the miles of trails behind my house on that thing.

about the 4 wheeler vs 3 wheeler comment i would have to say the 4 wheeler with the same wheel combo would be ahead.. and as far as racing goes 4 wheelers own but 3 wheelers take more skill! 3 wheelers are kinda like neons :lol: not the best but still damn fun.. and they are old and no longer make them..
man this thing makes me happy :D

I was just saying that in the sink to your ankles in mud kinda stuff the 3 would do good because the tires are so wide compared to most 2wd quads (as 3's are 2wd) but I think a 4x4 wheeler would be better and quads are probably better on most surfaces (especially turns and steep hills :lol: )
I think the only time I got stuck with a wheeler was on my cousins Honda Foreman its 4x4 but the thing is huge!

Why does a $420 ATC make me think of Kenny Powers? I know its not a jet ski, but I can picture slow-mo footage of a guy with a mullet showing off smoking herb riding around a field on one.....

I had a Honda 200S 3-wheeler when as a delinquent adolescent, lots of fun and injuries to be had.
