Well in my case it's because out where I ride there used to be tons of awesome single track everywhere, but recently the quads have found their way out there and ruined all of it by whooping it all out.
They also tend to not practice safe riding by drinking, not wearing safety gear, etc. Of course I won't say they all do this but there is definitely a correlation here. It makes all of us look bad to the hippies trying to shut down the riding spots.

Go with the dirtbike. The quads give a false sense of safety for beginners. Ive had a few friends who went the quad route first....1 broke his arm and the other his collar bone. Its too easy to ride over your head on a quad.

Also if you have problems on the trail you can push a dirtbike back to your truck but a quad...hell no!

You're not into falling? Who is? I'm sure not into that either! But I wouldn't be caught dead owning a quad. It's not about the falling, it's about the riding.

Don't be a quadtard.
. Theres nothing wrong with quads OP. It honestly all depends on what kind of riding you will be doing and which you prefer. You should try out both and make your decision from there. Also the bikes being safer is bs

i ride a quad because i can't balance for crap, and i like the overall stability of the platform.

ride before you make your decision.

Long Travel your Tacoma you won't have to worry about broken bones unless you crash it. But I started riding a dirt bike when I was 5 or 6 and I've been on one ever since so I'm a little biased. Once you get the hang of a dirt bike they're fun as hell. But quads are much easier to learn on my dad had one for a little before switching back to a bike and it was fun to mess around for a little on but a bike just has a different feeling you don't get with a bike. An advantage of a quad is that you get put coolers on the back and cruise all day, but bikes you'll be able to get in much tighter places.

He's in vegas, so I don't know how tight of places he'll be getting into, but I would think it wouldn't really be an issue?
