I took my wife for her first ride today, I must say she did well. I almost messed up once not thinking about the extra wieght I hit it pretty hard in 2nd and stood her up:hey: Needless to say the wife was not impressed. Over all it was a great day she said she would like to get her own, so I think I will get her a 450r or something along those lines.

Depends on what type of riding you do. I had a YFZ450 but I trail rode more than anything and the high reving engine with no reverse just sucked.

Yeah she will have to have reverse. Im not sure what im going to get her yet, I might get her a 4x4, I'm just not sure she can handle the 700xx she not very fond of going fast

I got my girlfriend a 250ex and that is working out well. She is new to the sport so the sport clutch on the 250ex is awesome and it still leaves her with enough power to pop little wheelies and do donuts and hit little jumps without too much worry of hurting herself. My buddy has one for his girl too and Ive actually seen her go through some pretty wicked stuff with that little thing. It is nice and light, easy to handle and very forgiving. Plus I got hers in Dec brand new '08 model for $2700 out the door. As for a 4x4 the Grizzly 350 or the Wolverine arent bad options either.

I purchased a 420 Rancher for my wife when I got my 700xx. It works great for her with the 4wd and the power steering. It is also helpful if I need to be pulled out of somewhere, like very deep snow.

Get her the 700 and drop a tooth on the front sprocket that slows it down a little and picks up the low end power not that it needs it, My wife rode mine finally for her 300ex and now I have to bey her a 700xx she was in Honda yesterday looking (Oh Well LOL ) she decided the power to get up the hills was so much better , Besides the 450r is a racer so it will have a lot of power and speed maybe a 400ex woud be your wifes speed,

when I was searching quads I liked the wolverine as a 4 x 4 because it was still sporty... and offered nice features...now I am so happy I bought the 700xx but not everyone is into the clutch, my husband will move it but bought a 500 scrambler for his ride, until he saw the can am he loved it, now he wants a can am.

can-am has a tour that goes around to test ride their products, should check it out...

I bought my wife a Polaris 500 EFI X2 (with the dump bed) when I got my 700xx....this is the first time she ever drove/rode an ATV and she likes it. She came back from a ride the other day and said she got it up to 30mph :)

Yeah there is no way I am going to put my wife on a 700, maybe after a few years of riding she doesn't even want anything that big.
is that what you tell yourself...LMAO!!! :lmao:

this is my first quad would not have liked anything smaller...now do I use all it has, no but I can grow into it not out grow it :D thats something to think of if this is going to be a long term hobby...spend the money once.
