Professional Product Review by BJ Moose -
New for 2012, I had the opportunity to take the Linhai Big Horn 28 out for a test drive in the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina on 28 miles of private trails filled with washed out logging roads to steep hill climbs and a bold stream crossing. The engineers got it right with the independent rear suspension as I rarely found myself out of the gas when I saw an obstacle coming. Logs, ditches, washouts all passed by without bottoming out the suspension and it made for a real smooth ride.
I was impressed with the torque and power for a mid sized 28 horsepower utility vehicle. As you can see in my riding demo video I really enjoyed the creek crossings and the hill climbs a lot.
I would remind anyone that is considering purchasing that this is a WORKHORSE and not a RACEHORSE. Plenty of power to pull that deer from the woods, or to pull a mower or trailer with the receiver hitch, but it will not set your hair on fire with 80 mph top speeds. I personally saw 48 on the long downhill straight away on the ridge line in the video. Perfect 4wd UTV for all farm work, use around the home, trail riding, and all around general use. By far the best value you will find in the mid sized UTV class. The Big Horn 28 4×4 UTV by Linhai is a real champion!

Be a Responsible Rider
Riding an ATV, motorcycle, UTV and dirt bike is an exercise in responsibility to yourself, to others, to the environment and to the sport. So remember: wear a helmet, eye protection and protective clothing whenever you ride. Never ride under the influence of drugs or alcohol, inspect your bike before riding & read your owner’s manual. Always obey local laws, use common sense, and respect the rights of others when you ride. Make sure you have a proper license when riding on public roads, and never modify your motorcycle’s exhaust system.
FOR YOUTH ATV BEGINNERS – Adjusting the Throttle Control before letting rider ride. When starting the unit up make sure that throttle control is as low as it can be tightened. The throttle control is located on the topside of the throttle on the handlebar. Loosen the nut and then tighten the screw down. Continually do this until you find the right adjustment to it’s safe enough to let your child ride. You’ll need to play with this to find the right speed.
Make sure the emergency brake is on before starting the unit. This is located on the left handlebar. Push the button in and clamp the brake before starting the unit up. To start the bike, the hand brake needs to be in a locked position anyway.
Make sure the rider is prepared to ride when the brake is released.
Tighten all bolts on wheels. Make sure wheels properly rotate.
Tighten all bolts on unit.
Make sure that handlebars, exhaust pipe, frame and other noticeable parts on bike are properly attached and bolted down.
Proper attire is warn.
These items should be warn at all times during riding.
Too many times people think they’re immune to wrecking so they’ll hop on the bike and just go. New riders are not used to the concept of using their thumb to accelerate. This causes the rider to increase acceleration and lose concentration. To avoid this, it is imperative to teach the rider how to do the following:
Show how to shut off engine with red shut off button (red button on left handlebar).
Ease into the acceleration by slowly pushing thumb throttle forward. If throttle should stick, show how to pull throttle back into neutral state.
Use right thumb to flick the throttle back into neutral.
Show rider how to “let off thumb throttle control” when rider is out of control.
Show rider how to stop with left hand brake.
Tell rider to not get distracted with adjusting helmets, boots or anything on the unit while riding or in acceleration mode. It is imperative the rider stops to adjust anything. They need to understand that by being safe to themselves and others riding, they need to be extremely careful about what they are doing is not distracting themselves.
People love riding and when they are shown the proper procedures of using their ATV, Dirt Bike, side by side, Scooter or Motorcycle, it’s a lot more fun and safe for everyone on the beaten path. That’s the Riders Wholesale way!
