Ive owned several quads, fav quad was a 660 grizzly until i had to sell it, had to get out the hobby for a while, was just getting too expensive. Recently downsized a bit, going with an 03 ozark 250. Its pretty sporty for a 250 utility, best thing available for what i could spend. Not the fastest atv out there but nice and torquey and nimble on the trails, a good machine for a beginner but still sporty enough for anyone. Its all stock except for replacing the worn out stock rear tires with some mudlite ats, seem to work well so far. Most of the utility quads are pretty sporty now, not like in the past where they were slow and only really meant for work. Even if you never use the racks, its still nice to have them if for nothing else than to have something to grab hold and push or pull on if you get stuck or something to loop a strap through when hauling.
