Quad bike insuranceWatch
250cc with a 20 year old on third party fire and theft was like £700...there is also some laws around the cc size and stuff which was abit confusing
For what it's worth, they're quite shocking on the road. Sports quads are better than agricultural quads on the tarmac, but they still don't handle all that well. I think you'll soon get bored unless you have access to farm land to use it on...
Saw an episode of Fith gear where one of the presenters tested a Quad on the road and concluded it was rubbish on the road. He had lean an awful lot to get it to turn corners, especially roundabouts.
They're incredibly fun if you've got farmland to play around on, but they're pointless for road only use. Plus, every time I venture out on the road to fill ours with petrol, you feel like an utter cretin. I've taken to using jerry cans instead!
Do job properly and get either a bike or a car. Quads are great for rounding up cattle or sheep, when a car would be too big and cumbersome and a bike would be very difficult on the terrain, but they are useless on the road.
