    Quad insurance

    Hi can anyone point me in the direction of reasonably priced Quad insurance for road use, also some indication of reliability, or not, of Honda/Yamaha/Kawasaki perhaps suggest best model/engine cc etc.

    So far my wish list is;

    Able to carry 2 of us
    Road legal
    Green plastics
    at least 400cc
    power steering
    winch
    auto tranmission
    enclosed foot platforms(as opposed to just pegs) to keep mud back
    decent sized racks front and back

    Have I missed anything?

    Any help pointers appreciated,

    Regards WB

    Try these people for insurance. I pay 104 per year

    01933 351697

    as for the rest, can't help. I run an old Suzuki quadrunner 250, does everything I ask of it, don't need a winch, if it does ever get so stuck it can't get itself out, I just pick it up. Power steering ? Why ? What sort of land will you be using it on ? If you need help steering it out of ruts, your better off staying in them

    Would you be road legal with two up?

    Interesting question, my guess is no as nearly all the owners handbooks state no passengers to be carried, and the footwells are not big enough for two either.
    As far as I know the only one that would be fully legal is one of the Polaris quads, as they do make a 2 seater, also the rules on road registration have been tightened up recently. The Polaris comes as road legal, all the others need extra's, and the new legislations requires that they be type approved for road use, you would need to look and see which manufacturers have compliant models at this time.

    Nfu wanted 300+ from me.
    As to passengers, nope, mines agri reg so no passengers allowed (on road), but with the advantage of no mot, free tax disc, but no nipping down the pub. Though if the farms I shoot were further away from each other/me, then I'd be a bit stuck due to the '1.5km from base/between sites' ruling
