I Finally Found a Polaris Youth ATV - Articles Surfing
I just wasn't willing to spend the $2200 that it was going to cost me to get my daughter the Polaris Youth ATV that she's been wanting for some time now. Though the sticker price was less than $1900, once they added on the commission, set up fees and taxes, the price became more than $2200. I just knew I could find a Polaris Youth ATV for less.
I started looking online and found some more reasonably priced Polaris Youth ATVs. The problem was that every Polaris Youth ATV dealer I'd find online seemed to want a king's ransom for the shipping charges. The prospect of buying a Polaris Youth ATV online was quickly dwindling before my eyes, as the addition of shipping charges made these other potential Polaris Youth ATV purchases about the same as at the local ATV store.
I was about to give up, meaning that the Polaris Youth ATV purchase would have to be saved for Christmas. At this point it occurred to me to look at one of the online auction websites. I decided to try the auction juggernaut, eBay first. And lo and behold, I was able to find just the deal on a new Polaris Youth ATV that I'd been seeking.
I found a Polaris Youth ATV on eBay for $1700. This didn't include shipping, but their shipping rates were very reasonable and not padded whatsoever. Yet, in my case it didn't matter anyway, as the seller lived close enough to my home that I was able to go and pick up the ATV myself.
My daughter loves her new Polaris Youth ATV. It came with all of the usually accessories that this model of ATV comes with at retail stores, as well as some other handy additions. I was pleased with the six month transferable warranty.
The Polaris Youth ATV that I purchased on eBay came with a battery, handlebars, tires and oil. If you want to have the ATV shipped these things must be charged and/or installed by your self. Since I was going to pick it up in person, it was ready to run. It had the battery charged and installed, as well as full oil and gas.
Along with the basic ATV components, the ATV package also included a Polaris Youth ATV helmet, an instructional video that goes over operational aspects as well as safety procedures. Included were an extra key, a tether switch for increased safety, a safety flag for increased visibility and some other smaller items as well.
The Polaris Youth ATV is a 2-stroke engine with electric kick-start backup. It has a fuel capacity of one gallon and weighs about 185 pounds. This child's ATV is about 48 inches long and only about 28 inches tall. I found that this size was just perfect for my eleven year old daughter.
I strongly believe that too many parents don't properly teach their children how to safely drive ATVs. Please, if you buy an ATV for your child, take the time to teach your child the proper safety procedures and riding techniques. In many areas there are classes to help teach proper ATV riding techniques.
