  • Quads are never safe even when using the right safety equiptment.. Especially when you're pregnant. its a bad idea to get on a quad pregnant. My Family rides quads and dirt bikes and all that too. My Uncle died just last year on his dirt bike and not a week ago my aunt broke 3 fingers and a rib on a quad

  • You know your skill level and the risk taken with anything. if you ride quads all the time its probably just as safe as driving your car as long as you stay on level terrain

  • My doc told me "absolutely not" because there are so many risk factors; even taking it easy. Besides all the risk of crashing, she said that all the bouncing and stuff is dangerous. That's just what my doc told me, but you should really ask your doc.
