Ok.......rang the old bill and they told me lots of useful stuff, without laughing!
1.) Make sure the one you get has slip diff......makes sense for road use.
2.) You don't have to wear a helmet but would recommend you do as legislation is coming in to make it law......also might save your head from falling off......again makes sense.
3.) Will be taxed as a car and you can't park in moti-cycle spaces......probably different in the UK so pretty useless outside Guernsey, but kinda makes me think twice now as that was part of the appeal.
4.) The quad has to comply with the EU guide lines for road quads (EU21 or something)
5.) Suggest you go around on quiet roads to start with, until your used to how it handles. Every road over here is pretty quiet except for school kick out times and rush hour well.....10 mins, but we are smaller!
So off I went and found a quad that I wanted and enquired about the price. Almost fell over laughing when he said £6995!!!!
Now looking for a nearly new A2!!
