I have the Yamaha Wolverine 4X4..... Its fast and I never get stuck.... Go for the 4x4 she will be happy you did.... I never had a 4x4 before this bike and now I won't ride the Honda 300ex that I have...

Hope this helps!

Regards
Speed Girl

I agree with Speed Girl, the Yamaha Wolverine is a great unit. Very well made and can be serviced without hassel.

Good luck, Kurt.

I've got to agree with Ike. I've rode just about all of them and if you want a good quality 4x4 ATV that's easy to ride and operate go with the Polaris 500. If you want FAST.....go with the Yamaha 600 Raptor!!! Wardey

My .02: They are all good! But for bang for the buck the Kawasaki Bayou is hard to beat. Not a speed demon (I gps'd mine at 42mph), but simple and reliable. We use it as a ranch mule for everything! Mine is a '98 and I've never turned a wrench on it, except for oil changes.
