I took my quad out to the dunes this weekend for the first time and I have to say overall very impressive. I climbed a couple hills that were a little tough, it would start to power out but part of that might have been me i'm not a very experinced rider. Handling was awesome even my buddies with yfz's and hondas agreed that it felt really stable and easy to jump. Out on the flats it had more power than I needed and it was a really nice smooth delivery. I think with a few simple mods it could easily be one of the best 450's out.
