Thanks Ben. I love those kids for sure.

We decided a few weeks back to start looking for used ATVs to take a family weekend trip every now and then. Saturday my buddy called to tell me he found the green 2005 Arctic Cat 90 for $500. Just needs battery and kick starter fixed (I hope). The following day I was looking on Craigslist and found a 2006 Polaris 50. Ended up picking it up for $850. They rode the Polaris around yesterday evening for a while and did well. Both quads have an adjustable governor to limit their speed. The Polaris also has a leash in the rear that I was able to follow them. Only pulled it once when I thought Bryce was heading for a fence. It kills the engine when pulled, works well.

Should have the Arctic Cat running by the end of the week. Ordered a battery and filter for less than $100 shipped.

I was scared to open this thread. I saw the title and that there was a picture with it....I thought it may have been a picture of Chris in a Speedo or something! :rolling :shock: :? :face


Nowwww back on topic! It is great that you can share all of those cool things with your boys Bobby. Sometimes I wish I had a son, but then I look at how much it costs for one child and having another would bankrupt my wife and I! Maybe my daughter will be my flying buddy when she gets older...who knows!

Brent,

When you have another, somehow you just come up with the money to take care of them. It's really no different than taking care of the first one - just one more to add to the fun. :-)

I wouldn't understand that because I purchased my kids during a buy one-get one free sale! :rolling

Only thing is I didn't read the fine print on the FREE. :face
