Dirtbike , Quad , or Side by Side ......... What Brings More Long Term Enjoyment ?
So, something I've noticed about dirtbikes - People in my neighborhood take them out for very short periods of time , maybe 40 minutes or less. Back and forth a few times in the desert , then it's back in the garage.

People with quads seem to stay out a bit longer. This seems to be a more chill riding experience.

And the people with side by sides seem to be having a way bigger production going on. Seem like a lot more involved.

I know if you want to have passengers , a side by side is the way to go.

The riding terrain would be Vegas desert.

Is a quad the best comprise ?

I've been wondering lately why there are so many quads and side by sides when dirt bikes are so much more fun and probably safer too.

Part of reason is because 2 stroke bikes are insufferably loud and obnoxious. 4 stroke Hondas are quiet though. I just like bikes. Pedal power is better than all of these IMO.

It really comes down to how much you're willing to spend and how relaxing you want the experience to be.

Riding a dirt bike is easily the most fun and cheap, but it really wears you out. Quad is a bit more expensive, but more forgiving as well, just not quite as fun. SBS is vastly more expensive than the other 2, but you can take your friends along and it doesn't wear you out at all, albeit not nearly as exciting as the other 2.

I don't see the point of the little gocarts (side by sides),I think most companies call them UTV's. Why not just buy a used Toyota pickup? It'll do 99% of anything a UTV can do, it'll cost less, be more reliable and parts are readily available and cheap

Seems that while you're out on a quad, you can sit and chill for a while.

And yeah , i would imagine getting hurt on a dirtbike is more likely

Quads are not bikes at all, they're just better than go-karts.
There are plenty of 4-stroke dirt bikes, BTW.

Go check out the Honda Talon or a Yamaha RMax.

That entirely up to the rider. I used to ride them for hours without mishap. I know my limitations and didn't try to climb straight up mountainsides for instance.

Get the quad. Where I live the side-by-sides are for cucked men whose wives aren't content with a cell phone leash so you have to buy one of those contraptions to drag her around with you.

On a dirt bike if you crash you'll be thrown but survive, but on a quad or side by side you'll be crushed

I used to ride a quad and I think you're right about the safety part. You lose traction on a steep hill with a quad and that thing always rolls to the bottom. My customized Hallman Mach V saved me on more than one occasion.

Enduro that goes on or off road

If you like to tinker you can pick up a Chinese 250 endure for under $2K delivered. Tons of online forums about them

Stay under 500 CC and you'll be much happier

Stay away from the Swiss Army knife of bikes, the Kawasaki KLR 650, too big for real desert riding unless you're over 6'2"

It's just a fad. Everybody imitates what they see others do. With a gravel pedal powered bike you hear everything and see wildlife. With no suspension you fell connected to the ground. And you get exercise and are motivated to keep extra weight off.

They all have different uses… nothing like a dirtbike doing 60 on single track back mountain roads. But also nothing like cruising a side by side loaded up for a night in the woods. Quads are ok, I use it for labor around the place, pulling logs, plowing etc.
Sorry, that message is no longer in the database.
