Exactly. Quads suck, in any incarnation. They're not too bad out West, I guess, but they have totally hosed off-road riding here in the East. Their proliferation and idiotic riders have destroyed trail systems and given us all a bad image.I think that is an extremely perceptive remark. In fact, I have thought exactly the same thing: These things have all of the dangers of a real bike, yet do not demand the same level of commitment and/or training to use. And in fact, they're so easy to wail around on doing slides and burnouts and such, I suspect they're going to be splattering their new riders all over place.
You're pretty smart for a Harley rider.
Put them all in a pile and light the fuse.
