this might be a good thing ...
A group of us went on a ride this fall and my wifes lt250r was acting up so i said she should try mine and i will ride hers to trouble shoot, well we started rolling and when the front tires finally hit the ground there was a huge smile on her face.
My question is how many of you have wifes or girls in your life that ride rappys and is it to much for them?
PS- if she likes it she can keep it and im getting a new 700 8):thumbsup:

I personaly think its aswome. My wife rode my 660 for a while and she loved it. But she never cracked hard into the throttle but i think it would not have changed anything i got her a 01 blaster and she says she would rather have mine, But thats never going to happen unless like you said if i could get a new 700 out of the deal then i might consider it.8)

I traded my wifes 06 blaster off on a 04 660 that was in bad shape but after a lil tuning and a good deal on a clean set of used plastics she was totally stoked. she rides like she stole it first ride out she rolled it and has loved it every since now i think she has her eye on my 700.

My raptor in my sig is actually what my wife rides. It requrires a little less shifting and clutch work than my banshee.

My wife had a 400ex and decided she wanted a bit more (felt like the quad itself was to small, she grew up on workhorses). So we purchased a 06 700 and she really likes it. Kinda hot to see a little girl on a big bore :).

i agree but my wife isnt the most experienced rider.
i actually dont mind trading her rides for a while, its pink, black and is way to small for me. everyone laughs untill i go screeming by them on a pink flash of reving fuery

Its not a 660 buy my wife can ride my 700 pretty good as far as trails, now she is not pulling wheelies or donuts that my job. She loves her 700 grizzly and I seen her do some wheelies on that one but not on purpose. :D

honestly a 660 is even good for unexperienced riders as long as they go easy. the power ban is smooth and it can handle most anything on the trails. my gf rode my old 660 when i got my 700 and she did amazing on it. now she did race dirtbikes so she knows how to ride but never rode anything the size of the raptor but loved the smooth power. then i traded it for a 08 kfx 450 so she rides that now lol. but really a 660 is great for the wife/girl to rip just got to respect it
