Right or wrong, many people feel ATV
s are easier to learn riding basics thanks to the stability of four wheels. A solid platform allows entry-level riders to practice shifting a manual transmission, braking and body control without having to worry about balance.

We spent over a month logging miles in the hills of Oregon, Californian sand dunes and Arizona deserts. During that time a number of different riders provided feedback including women, teens, beginners and full-sized men with plenty of experience.
