I have had mine for about 2 weeks and have only had time for one long ride. So far I am very impressed. This thing rides so smooth and the low range really gives it great climbing ability. I ride on mostly mining trails and rough terrain with some steep very rough spots and it went everwhere I wanted to with ease. I originally thought the 250 might be under powered but it isn't. It will run around 42 mph in high on a hard surface and low is good for around 20 or so. Deep sand in some areas in the wash will slow it down but not to bad. I still have to play with the tire pressure for sand (I had about 7 lbs in them). The only thing I can fault is it is a bit on the loud side with the stock exhaust but so are all the others with a similar type of pipe. I think that anyone that buys one will be amazed at how much you get for the price. This has to be one of the best bargains out there in a small buggy. I have had a Polaris Ranger and an Arctic Cat Prowler before and you could buy 3 of these for the price of one of them and have just as much if not more fun.
