My friend got a raptor 660. Well I always wanted a 450r but he let me drive the raptor and wow was it fun. These things have extreme power. Its wayyyy faster than any car can take off or most of them. You can just throttle it up in first and ride a wheelie.

Plus they go like 80mph in a matter of seconds. Its like driving a sport bike. I am going to upload a picture. We are having a blast with this thing let me tell you.

She was told of how my dad fell off my friends raptor and how this thing is powerful and dangerous. Being a worry wart. There dad said they could so....He told my aunt one time she need to go live in a white box with no windows so she can be safe.

I have a friend that has a pair of platinum rods in his back because his ATV did a wheelie and continued over on top of him. Remember that the machine has no conscience or respect, it's all up to you.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I have known you for a while now, CGM3, and hence the caution - you are a friend. Being older, and seeing a couple of ATV trips go bad, it tarnishes my view somewhat. I love to ride them too. They are a blast - especially with the right mixture of mud! Have fun and be safe! :thumbsup:

I know trust me I am a safety type. This thing scares me...

Got my family over today and wow they liked it. Got more family over tomorrow to play with it.

Who am I?

Well I am both pictures. I jump the terrises around here on the farm and I get cow poop all in my face from riding in the fields. Had TWO big blobs of it hit me tonight getting the animals up and earlier I got my clean shirt all poop covered from jumping in a field where the cows are at.

I will get a pic or two up tomorrow. I always have been a atv rider every since we got our first atv.

Jumps are fun on this as the shocks are so great for it. Like landing on a pillow.

I would treat these machines with utmost respect.They are very dangerous.If I owned one I would have full Harness and build a roll cage,as so many accidents,the ATV lands on top of you resulting often in Spinal injuries.My next door neighbour works for Yamaha head office here in Sydney and I have been at his work and ridden the 650CC.Too much power,IMO.
He could buy one for near half retail price, and wouldn't as they even scared him.He has 3 Yamaha Motor cycles,but doesn't wan't to end up in a wheel chair,as they are very unpredictable,in rough terrain.

Yeah I raced the raptor 660 and won....Its got more pickup than those....Its nuts let me tell you. Much more fun than riding go carts. If I sell it and make nothing then I would be happy as I got to ride one. So did the rest of my family. Got it stuck in the mud today its not a mud machine. Throws the stuff ALL over you with its tiny fenders.

Never, ever wear a helmet or any other safety gear while doing such games.

It was a Raptor 660, and not a 650, as I originally posted.Some time ago and I had forgotten.One awsome machine IMO.
I was stating to be carefull, and threat this machine with respect,as it can bite you real quick.
Not to wear a seatbelt or head protection is only inviting disaster. Nobody wants to fall off and hit their head and end up talking like Chewbacca (Starwars) for the rest of their lives.
Enjoy the experience 'CGM3' :thumbsup:

No seatbelts are on any atv I know of.
Sadly it goes up for sale soon.Hoping to make a profit. Maybe one day I will buy another.
I will put up a picture of it soon. Its all dirty now and needs to be cleaned.

4x4s are nice for mud but bad for speed and gas. And they dont turn sharp by no means.

Yeah its a bummer. I go get back on my fourtrax and ask, where is the power at....

Well I bought it to resell it. I will get another one day its just I have a car payment I need to pay and I want to just outright pay the car off before the
term so I can save on interest!

I have had so much fun.

We are getting my youth Pastor from Church over this Saturday probably to ride it and my friends raptor 660.

I cant believe I have not got a picture up yet. I have been so busy....
Here is the craigslist with the pics:
http://greenville.craigslist.org/rvs/491252278.html

Very big pics....Buyers like those type.
