How big of an adult are we talking. I have a rally its for the 8-12 year old kids to ride, it won't pull me to loade it on the trailer, I can ride it around on the flat groaund ok. I am 6 ft 280. Its sorta ironic that this is posted in a AC forum, but the AC 250 ute is the best one on the market, we also have one of those and it will pull me to load on a trailer, or whereever I want to go as long as i am not in a hurry. The rally is very very dead headed on the bottom end, it to me always feels like the brake is set when you first take off, you pretty much have to floor it. I have checked into it when I first got it, they are all that way. The ralley is automatic, but so is the AC250 and the ac has guages and a much more convienent shift lever location. The AC is also shaft drive where the ralley is chaain driven, so the ac is extreamly low maintenece. They both have a decent suspension. They both look and are well made. But for an adult rider the AC250 is a much better choice. I paid about the same amount for both machnines new. If I had it to do over they both would be AC 250 utes. If the used ralley is cheap enough then maybe its worth buying, I have not had any trouble with ours other than the useuall, battery was replaced this year, had to tighten the chain a few times, just maintenence stuff.
I am not toutng the AC because of brand loyalty I reasearched them all, heavily before buying this last time, its the best in it class. I actually own more Can-am products than AC products, and plan to buy 09' Outy 800R when they come out. So I am not saying AC250 out of any sort of AC devoute loyalty its worth a look if nothing else. They are selling for 3300.00 new around here. I have seen used a while back around 2500.00.
