Quad vs dirtbike?!

Looking at getting a quad or a dirtbike. Anybody who has either please chime in w opinions or reasons as to what made you buy 1 vs the other. Im leaning twards a quad im more of a casual rider i wont be racing or jumping or doing any other crazy shit. I feel like a quads a bit more my style easier to just kinda cruise around on. Give me some feed back please!

Depends where you plan to ride, what kind of terrain, who with, by yourself or double. I prefer dirt bike jsut because i can fit places way easier, go faster, and launch off shit if i want to. I have some large polaris sportsman quads but those are for leasurly road cruising.

Its cool. Most people don't know about the other forums here. Some people might jump all over you for this tho. Everything usually ends up in 2nd gen.
Lots of people here have lots of cool hobbies. I'm a supermoto guy myself.

It would be alot of open desert areas as i live in vegas. I feel like w a quad its less easy to it since theres 4 wheels i wont get stuck in ruts or hit a large rock or what not

you can still eat shit pretty bad on a quad!
On a bike, you usually fall off on the inside, go over the bars, or just plain get thrown off. On a quad, you usually roll it and it lands on top of you.

Real men ride dirtbikes


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.

My view (been riding since i was 4 years old)

If you plan to ride with other people (Wife, kids, friends Ect) Get a quad I LOVE Dirtbikes but every since i got with my bike i could not stand to ride mine when we went out with her family cause its just not fun to ride slow on a dirtbike. On a quad i can go out and piddle around with them and have fun on a nice slow relaxing ride or go haul ass and have a blast flying by trees and jumping climbing what i feel like... Quad is just the best way to go imo now that i do not race or ride tracks anymore.

Hope that helps! have a blast with whatever you get

bikes are safer, lighter, cheaper, better in every way.

Don't be a quadtard.

With the amount of experience you have I would say quad, because you are less likely to hurt yourself as bad. And yes maintanence is about the same.

I have both - A KX250 2-stroke MXer, and a KFX400 sportquad. Each has strengths & weaknesses. The bike is scary fast, but more of a challenge in soft stuff. The quad is easier to ride casually, but at 400+ pounds, is punishing at speed in rough terrain. But it DOES have reverse, which helps in tight stuff.
