    no they still make atvs like they used too.
    these are just cheap-o ones to fuck around on. basically its a disposable camera compared to a dslr.

    good idea to get these to learn on and have some fun, but real, good atvs cost between 2 and 5k. then you'll have some real fun.

    these cant do half the things a real atv can do, but they are still a lot of fun to screw around on.
    be careful though, because these are known for causing injuries at high speeds.
    they arent the most stable things and some of the vital parts are made of shitty cheap metals.

    also, as referred above, the carbs are shit, and impossible to keep stable.

    they passed a law here in washington state baring anyone younger than 16 to operate any kind of dirt bike or atv. Great gift though! I loved my quad back in the day. I had a 300ex my brother had a 400 and our old man had a 450r with the Honda speed kit in it. That thing was scary. We hit up the dunes outside of Coos Bay oregon one summer. It was amazing.

    when did they pass this law? I thought they just recommend that anyone under 16 take a operators course? That seems like a ridiculous law, I have ridden dirtbikes literally since I was in diappers w/training wheels on my bike. I see kids on bikes every weekend here in washington(mainly taneum cr. Area)they are all breaking the law?

    That's an awesome gift. If I had the money, both of my nephews would be getting one. I had a 1981 Honda 70cc Three Wheeler when I was a kid. People talk about how dangerous they are, but I never got hurt on it once. I could ride on two wheels with total control. If taught properly to ride you'll do fine. So good thinkin on starting him young. Im sure your son will love it.
