I bought this Ranger 150 a few months ago when I was in the wheel chair. Other than the kids ripping it up and down the street we haven’t really used it.

Today we ran it up to Bison and let the kids run it around. There’s an entrance to a wash pretty close to my house so Stacy drove the Can Am and I ran the ranger with Robert and Heather following in their RZR.

As soon as we hit the dirt I turned it over to Robert and Heathers son Brock. My kids have zero offroad experience and Brock has grown up riding quads etc.

There was a couple of technical spots in the beginning so I felt better with him driving.

Sierra and Daniel running around. Seeing their faces and watching them get their first taste of “freedom” and learning what choices to make and which ones not too. I remember that day when I was a kid and got on my MR50.. Pretty cool experience for them and if we are being honest even cooler for me watching.

They ran it around for an hour or so and it was time to head home. I think when we go camping this thing is going to be running from Sun up to Sundown. Lol

I was pretty impressed with this thing and it’s capabilities for being stock out of the box! I have some videos I can upload tomorrow.

Appreciate Devious Chris getting me a good deal on it! Going to be an Epic winter!

Dave - we had to head home early with the weather. I was planning on calling you and getting the boys up there with their RZRs to ride around with your crew. The kids love their RZRs. It is stressful having them run around on them but part of them growing up.

Good times. This is why our family owns all this stuff

It’s time for some quads and motos.

I had both kids riding two wheels since age 5. I have friends that had their kids going even earlier

I sure hope so.. I know I'll remember it for the rest of mine!

You will soon realize 1 is not enough. Each kid will need their own

I also have two XR50's that they will be learning how to ride here pretty quick etc.. This broken ankle thing set us back quite a ways, but we are catching up.. LOL

My garage is pretty full at the moment and while it would be possible to squeeze another RZR170 or Ranger 150 it would start getting pretty tight.

damnit

another toy to work for, lol.

I like the fact it's more like a vehicle with a dash and not a sticker speedo like the rzr170 lol. Looks like room to grow for the kids vs the fixed seating area of the 170.

To bad you couldn't sleep with a realtor and get her to find you a smoking deal. :D
Trust me I look. But we would need 4 bedrooms, 3 RV garages, a pool and a kick ass view to get is out of this house. Not to mention our neighbor situation is killer and we are close to everything.

It really makes sense, thanks for posting as I had no idea about this model. Haven’t seen them in showrooms in So cal either . I read you can use the ride command to set top speed. That would be handy with kids around camp, lol

They are both in college and barely have time to breathe now. Enjoy it Dave, these days go by in a blink.

If RD would just reveal who did that to his foot.
We'd drag them out to the street and straighten their tie.

Yes you can control speed and you can set geofences as well. If you have service you can also see where they are at all times etc
