    Hello Mark and everyone, just joined so I'll keep you updated on this Blaster as we take it on new adventures here in Marlborough (top of the South Island). Your input is much appreciated as I'll be making various adjustments etc.

    Could not be happier with the purchase, made a 900km round trip in 13hours over the very challenging alternative (due to quake damage) inland route - dropped off the YTM225DRS I had sold, and collected the Blaster a further 1km down the road - so turned out perfectly.

    Wanted a quad my sisters could also learn to ride on, they're 10 and have been playing around on trials (OSET 20") and trails bikes (PW80 etc) so this will be a new experience. They are somewhat used to a clutch having ridden my Sherco ST125 trials bike and demo KX65, KLX110L - both are tall for their age (twins) but don't think they're ready to ride it just yet - with lightened flywheel, the power comes on really fast!
    Was considering getting either an LT80 or LTF160 for them but then saw this and had win it - can't remember last time I was so nervous watching an auction come to an end!

    Only previous experience I have with a sports quad is a few unsupervised hours hooning around the trails on a rented Blaster 17 years ago in Cape Town, South Africa - that joyride came to an end once I slid off the trails and into a stump, breaking some steering component.

    More pics and 1st ride report coming.
