Well I was finally able to see a predator up close this weekend. I was at Winchester Bay Oregon and saw quite a few. I have read a few of Robs posts on other sites and could not believe the predator would come close to my Raptor, let alone beat it. Finally a guy challenged me to a race, I beat him by about a 1/2 bike length after about a 200 yard run, but I was really surprised by the Predator, it took me off the line, and I did not pass until I was in 4th gear, even then the little bugger would not go away. My wife thinks she needs a sport quad now, I just might have to get her a Predator.

Find some dirt and unleash the real power of the Predator. The races are about the same either way over 300ft. Raptor by an eyelash. Can't complain about that.

All of my races have been uphill on the dunes... and that's where the Predator's powerband shines. On flat ground, I'm sure the three machines are very close, and it will ultimately depend on the rider's ability.

Well, now I know she won't out run me. I took her to look at quads yesterday, when I showed her the KFX400 she fell in love, then I took her to see the Ped. she didn't like it. Women, why is everything about, "it doesn't match my helmet or riding gear", "I think the green looks cool." Looks like I may be adding a Kawi to the trailer insted of the Predator.

Not hardly, I was really looking foward to getting a Pred. on the trailer, Rob I tried to tell her we can get after market plastic, it didn't work. Well I know what will be my next quad will be. I actually was going to buy a Pred. when I first started shopping around, the thing that turned me away was actually ajerk sales person at the YREKA, CA. dealership.
