Got my XX, now my girl needs a ride

So I'm all fixed up now and ready to start riding (thanks to those who gave me the nice welcome), but my girl needs a ride so that we can start travelling around and riding. I think i've narrowed it down to a 2008 Wolverine 350 for $3000 or a 2008 Recon for about the same. Both are new. Do you guys have any opinions on a good ATV for a 27 year old woman who is fit and has ridden her dad's a lot, but never owned her own. It would be nice to have racks on hers for tents, etc., but I think she'll really enjoy a sportier ride, and with the Wolverine she wouldn't even have to shift.

What do you guys think? I'm open to anything at this point.

I would say either a Recon or 250ex. Depends on whether or not she is wanting to learn how to ride a bike with a clutch. Both are bullet proof and will perform for many years to come. Plus you can find really good deals on used ones. Not trying to knock the Wolverine but I am a little biased!

Well in my case I bought her a 250ex but she has never ridden at all before. Personally I would go with the Wolverine. Its sportier and faster so she wont get bored with it, and you can get a rear rack for it to have it haul stuff too. As for the 250ex being cheaper used I could never find one for a good price. I got my 250ex new for $2700 otd but people are trying to sell '06 250ex on craigslist for 2700-2800 weird

You could get a nice used 400ex, prolly an 08 even, if she knows how to ride one with a clutch. I know some people aren't as fortunate as others w/ this economy, so if you look you can find tons of stuff people are trying to unload b/c they can't afford them. My buddy picked up 2 400exs (one stock and the other w/ a pipe, filter, and nerfs and both 07s) for $4100. The one still looks brand new. And with the ex, they have so many options out there, you could get a nice back bumper/rack like I used to have on mine for hunting and whatnot, and they are pretty much bulletproof.

I say buy her a xx. She will get used to the power. Just keep it stock this way there is always room for more power when she gets used to it. You could also get a six-pack rack for the xx and have the best of both worlds. The longer you hold out the cheaper they will get.

I think if she has ridden before she will out grow the choices you presented especially if she rides your 700xx from time to time. I went for the 700xx because I knew my boredom level and wanted a clutch...I was only allowed to buy one :( The wolverine was my choice if I went auto but I am so glad I didn't! It also depends what kind of riding she will be doing for climbs she will want the power to make it effortless...

Good luck!
