ATVs are an absolute blast. Ours is a Suzuki King Quad 750. It will haul ***. It's hit 70+ on the pavement. It's been been though many a mile of dry creek bed, mountain trail, and though untamed wilderness. Nowadays, we don't ride it hard anymore. It's mainly used it to check fence lines, heard the neighbor's cattle off our land for the umpteenth time, and pull small trailers around the property. If you are doing anything more than just calmly riding from place to place on your property, definitely wear a helmet. The full frontal type. My mother went up a steep hill and didn't quite make it. The ATV basically landed on top of her. She walked away with a broken nose and a minor concussion. Without that helmet, she'd either be dead or severely impaired. I've been thrown a time or two from one when I've gotten a little too rambunctious. Helmets save lives.
