need a beginner atv for my son. dallas power sports?

My son is 8 years old first off. Anyone ever deal with them. Looking for something like a 110cc ATV. Easy to ride and start. Looked at them and they have some cheap. Looking at spending 300 to 500

Run from the Chinese jobs. I know at least 8 of my co workers who bought them for their kids. Man you would not believe the stuff that breaks on them in the first week or so. LOL Save some hassle and buy a used one like mentioned above. It will still be around to sell to the next guy when they out grow it.

Whos your Daddy

if you spend money on the chinese stuff, it's wasted. if you buy something nice that is used, you can get your money back out of it.

Exactly, I have seen so many chinese bikes break...while being rode. I saw one lose a wheel while driving, not pretty. I bought my wife a 2004 Suzuki lt z250 to learn on, paid $1800.00 for it and rode it for nearly 3 years with absolutely nothing but a few oil changes required and It took me 4 days to sell it for $1700.00 when we upgraded this year for her.
