I probably would’ve been just as happy with a Wheely to be honest! Really want one of those too

Yea sorry I keep forgetting to mail you back about the 1 in Christchurch. They never replied to my messages and then the shop was empty. Hate to think where they ended up.

No worries...I’ll get one eventually. If I can blag a BB40 I’m sure I can blag a Wheely :-)

Not for me it’s not, I’m still waiting lol. The tracking says it’s in the uk half way up the country, just needs to get a lot more north!

Oh I’m sure a boombox will get strapped to this at some point. Not in the same league as your Can Am but cheap and an absolute blast...a lot of bang for your buck :-)

That looks dope. One thing I always check before I buy a quad is the turning radius, the last Kawasaki I had you needed Talladega race track to turn it around.

It’s a blast and not too bad a turning circle lol. It’s a Suzuki King Quad 300. Been totally overhauled with new tyres, battery, oil, filters, serviced, stripped and whole frame resprayed. New protective plate underneath. Runs great, ticks over very smoothly. Bargain at £800 which is about $950 in your money. Pretty pleased with that.

The bloke who did it rebuilds Ducati’s as a hobby and even built his own seaplane so pretty confident it’s been done well lol.

I love it . that front cargo rack would be the place to mount a boombox because you can reach the controls while riding lol.
I love the tires on it they look gnarly.

I almost bought a Honda foreman 350 but when I tried to push snow with it , it was too light.
My can am weighs 900 pounds with the snow plow on it so and it doesn't need fool around . mine can pull a tree trunk which is what I needed because I burn wood for heat in the winter and I usually end up sawing wood lol.

I had to replace the entire steering shaft because my brother rolled it over and bent the handle bars, it also has electric power steering which is an immense help Turing that beast.

What model is the one you have ,I love the looks of it .

It’s a Suzuki King Quad 300. Has high, low and super low gearing with diff lock so it’ll pull/push pretty much anything I’m told.

Not got many pics of it yet...only got it a few days ago Attached File  E8493323-6B6E-46F1-ADC1-31AD5687629B.jpeg   152.39K   1 downloads

I looked for a Honda but they hold their value too well, even wrecked ones were expensive

Forget the quad, I love the countryside!! Please post some pics! My wife loves watching BBC shows and wants to move there! I would have a hard time giving up my back yard, unless theres a beach close by :) I think one of the shows she loves the location is where "Doc Martin" is filmed and another is the "Coroner". Both are such idyllic locations.
