Scooter or ATV?

Post by Kidsatv » Tue Aug 27, 2013 3:29 pm

I need your help, friends.
My son (13 yrs) want to get some vehicle for his birthday. I prefer ATVs but my wife suggests scooter. What is better?
And where to buy? I've found a lot of resources, like http://www.scootsusa.com and http://www.scootercatalog.com/ (for scooters), or http://www.megamotormadness.com/atvs and http://www.kidsatvsale.com/ for ATVs.
Thanks in advance!

Is this for a cottage or farm setting? or for around the neighborhood? Either way I say try to find yourself a Honda Rukus '07 or newer its great for both road and a little dirt.

Obviously we are pro scooter :) but what setting are you looking to see him ride? scooters are very limited off road, and since he is under age(13) riding on road may get him trouble. does his fiends ride anything? and what is his input- experience for a ride? scooters are less on gas than a ATV for sure :lol:
presently enjoy riding a Ruckus and a Super 9. Tinkering with a Riva 180 and a couple of old Puch SV's. In the off season I enjoy a 1999 Polaris Indy 600 XLT Touring and a 2014 Artic Cat Prowler side by side

Good point Donny maybe a street legal dirt bike is the answer. They do have small displacement ones from Honda and Suzuki that might be the better answer.

Thanks for your answers, friends,
I'm only worrying about the safety, and you know.. four wheels are more safe than two. Also I think for now I'd like him more to off-road, and yes, Donny, I don't like the idea riding on road in this age.

ATV, scooter or dirt Bike proper training and understanding that any vehicle could seriously injure him is the true must. Happy Riding

Buy one of each, that way he can choose, you can ride the one he doesn't choose.

Obviously you want to ride an ATV and your wife wants to ride the scooter, since he probably wants a Jetski or waverunner; buying two for yourselves is perfect.

Do you let him ride his bicycle on the street ? At thirteen he is well aware of the danger of hitting a car on a bike, his decision making ability may not be fully developed but the risk factor is very similar between a bicycle and scooter.

By age thirteen, I already had two Lambretta LD 125's one Cushman Super Eagle and was about to score my first Honda when I turned fourteen.

It is my opinion that owning a motorcycle/scooter will help develop his sense of self esteem and develop his responsibility level, OR it will expose that he does not have the capacity and common sense to be responsible. Some people are like that, sad but true.

Since this post is about five years old, the kid must be just about 18 now, probably ready for a Hayabusa or Ninja H2R, both of those can top 200 mph.
