New User - South Wales

Hey, I don’t own a quad yet - I am in the market looking to pick up a 700r but right now educating myself on the upkeep and ownership.

Is there many owners that go on regular rides in South Wales?

- Steve, Cardiff.

Never owned one, never ridden one and never been able to store one securely as the Focus RS hogged the garage. Now time to get a ‘economic diesel’ to live on the drive way making space for the 700r.

I am aware that raptors tend to get abused quite a bit so I won’t be jumping in straight away. I would like to pick one up that’s been cherished hence joining the forum to get everyone’s perspective.

A good well looked after will cost around £5,000-£6,000
I bought a 2014 LTZ 400 basically new only 780 miles on the speedo everything is spotless except from a bit of rust on the A arms which I will be getting rid of and painting over it.

It's my first road legal quad made up with it can't wait till the summer now, was going to go out today for a little run but it pissed down and I've got no waterproof gear lol.
Be careful on those 700R there rapid saying that even the LTZ 400 Fuel Injection models are which I have.

I had to travel down to bridgend for it last week took me 5 hours in the bad weather we had haha.
Got Facebook? PM me and I will add you and help look around for a 700R for you mate.
