ATVs--sport or utility

why did you buy a sport over a utility or utility over sport?? i bought a recon beacause its auto clutch, bigger seat, affordable and economical, full plastics to deflect some mud. im not much on speed but its fun to go full tilt sometimes, it topped out at a whopping 39 mph on sand yesterday. i know some have both so why both??

Lots of rocks and water up here so the Rincon and 420 do well. Just bought the TRX250ex for my 13 year old grandson to use but it hasn't been out yet, hope there's enough clearance. The 10 year old will have the 125 this year. Need to stay on easy trails with the smaller machines

4 HONDAS 4 ME
07 Rincon... 26" Mud Bug Rs, 1 1/2" spacers, 2500# Runva winch, Kimpex box, Moose skid plate
07 Rancher 420....Type 5 IPTs w/26" Mud Lites, Moose skid plates & A-arm guards, Viper winch, Kimpex seat, fender guards

Two 06 TRX250EXs.....Tusk nerf bars, swing arm skid plates
85 TRX125.... sadly sold

on the 250ex, if it has the same ground clearance as a recon, it should be ok i think, mine does pretty good in rocky areas

I already had a sport quad, and I needed something to haul the old lady around and let her ride. Winters get pretty harsh up here in Ohio, so I needed something to get through the thick snow, and the sport quads don't work very well. Why didn't he just get a snow mobile? Because snow mobiles don't go through the mud very well, and they suck on backroads. The Rincon just seemed the logical choice.
