Mine was a brand new 1986 suzuki 125 4-wheeler. No rear shocks just big ole rear tires. First week having it brakes went out. To expensive to have fixed, so learned to ride it with no brakes. First in the area to have a 4-wheeler. It was great fun. Tough little machine. Drove every evening 10 miles through the backs trails and roads with small yard trailer to school AG farm to feed/walk hog. Loved that journey. Good memories.

Circa 1980, I bought the Honda 110 three wheeler. Still to this day, it is the toughest and best I have ever owned. I have bought several ATVs and SXS since then, and the old 110 was as durable and mechanically sound as any of them. Lot of fun was had on that machine.

My first ATV was a horse. First with a motor was a Honda Trail-90, second was a Honda 90 3-wheeler. I'm not sure where they are now, but I bet wherever they are they're still going.

The first one in our family was Dad's Honda 90 3wheeler. He treated it so bad, but it wouldn't die. After deer season was over, he'd push it under some azaleas in the yard. Next time he needed it, he'd drag it out, wipe the seat off, gas it and go. Amazing.

My first one was a Honda 110 3wheeler. It was also tough, but if you didn't run it regular the carb jets would plug up. Got to where I could pull that carb and clean the jets in fairly short order. Bought it used and I had it for years.

Honda 250 big red. Best atv ever for hunting in the woods. Dad bought it new in 83 and I still have it today. We call it the one kick wonder. Turn on key and choke, one kick later you gone

Yes sir, we had one just like yours except the reverse didn't work either, had to push it backwards. So rough driving on the rocks it would give my rear end some serious chafing!

1985-86 (I don't remember), Suzuki LT230 Quadsport. 5 Speed, with clutch and reverse lever by your foot. Kick start (sideways) only. That thing was abused from day one by my brother and I. We had tons of fun and should have been killed several times. NEVER wore a helmet... stupid!!!

I don't ever remember changing the oil - just gas and go. Dad traded it for a trailer load of scrap iron in 1997, I think. In the end the swingarm bushings were shot - it would kick the chain if you tried to corner too fast. That is the only thing that ever went wrong with it. It even survived a 100 yard end-over-end roll down the hill behind the house while Dad was chasing a wild ewe. Fired right back up like nothing ever happened.

It was like this one...

I had a honda 70 and my dad had this exact bike. It was a beast. I still have my grandmothers trail 90 and still has paper tags on it.

I had a 2005 Suzuki Ozark (250cc). Considering all the stuff that I put it through, it really surprised me that it took it and kept coming back for more.




It's under there. I drove into this hole, and drove back out of it with it running the entire time. I even had a small shot of nitrous on it to keep the mud tires spinning when I got into peanut butter mud.

'84 Honda 125 3-wheeler. A couple years later we inherited an '86 Honda 125 4 wheeler. Loved those bikes, especially the 3-wheeler. Wish they had odometers.

1986 Honda Fourtrax 200SX. Still starts and idles better than any machine I have ever owned. I love that I can also do a complete tune up, carb rebuild, ignition module, air cleaners, petcock valve all for like $80.

My first was a late 80's Honda 3-wheeler. After that I bought a 2004 Honda Foreman S and ran it for over 17,xxx miles, just sold it for $2,000. Now have a Kawasaki Teryx4, it's fun and dang comfy, but I miss my ATV's.

My first was a Polaris sportsman 90. I got it 8 years a go and I stil use it. If the area is to small for our big 6x6 Polaris I can slip that 90 in there easy loaded a bunch of corn on it and a bunch of deer on it.
