Riding an ATV through a trail is all about having fun and experiencing new emotions as you go. However, if you want your experiences to stay on the positive side, you should learn how to stay safe on your ATV. If you’d like to learn more about what measures you can take to keep your ATV rides enjoyable and safe, refer to the post below.

How to Ride Your ATV Safely with Help from the Synthetic Oil Experts in Show Low

Learn More About the ATV

Can you imagine flying a plane without the proper know-how? You probably think that it would be a dangerous and reckless thing to do. This same principle applies when you ride an ATV, even if it’s a small engine that drives on land. If you want to have joyful rides, you first need to be aware of the machine’s functioning, its components, its requirements, its restrictions, and more, which is why you’re strongly advised to read the owner’s manual before you even hop on it.

Take Care of Its Condition

Continuing with the example of the plane, now let’s imagine that you step on a plane that hasn’t been cared for properly and that just isn’t ready to take flight. It’s highly likely that you wouldn’t ride it, right? Well, the same thing goes for the ATV, if you don’t want to be in danger because of faulty brakes, or damaged tires, you should first make sure that it’s in good condition before you ride it. To that end, take it to a professional on a regular basis, and keep an eye out for any issues. If you need a top quality synthetic oil in Show Low to keep your ATV’s engine working as expected, trust that John O Brown in Show Low can provide it for you. Call (520) 444-2634 to learn more about AMSOIL and what it can do for your vehicle and its synthetic oil change.

Practice, Practice, Practice

If you think that you can just get on an ATV and drive it through different kinds of trails, think again. If you don’t have any experience with ATVs, you first need to get trained so you can learn how to handle the vehicle before you move on to more challenging things. On that same note, have a safe space where you can test drive the ATV a few times, so you can learn how to drive it safely, as well as learn to react to less-than-ideal occurrences that could happen with it.

Get Your Protective Gear On

We can’t stress enough the importance of wearing protective gear as you ride your ATV. As you may know, when in an ATV, you’re exposed to your surroundings, which is why you need the special gear to keep you safe in case a mishap occurs. To that end, be sure to always ride with your helmet, goggles, and gloves on. Likewise, verify that you’re wearing appropriate footwear and clothing (long sleeves and pants), so you’re not as vulnerable to the surroundings.

Stick to the Rules

While you may think that rules can take the fun away from riding an ATV, you should realize that they’re there to ensure that your drives stay fun and not turn into a risky situation. That’s why it’s really important that you stick to the rules and follow the leader as you ride. Likewise, remember that you must be 16 or over to ride, and to avoid venturing on your own. Finally, try not to drive your ATV if the conditions outside aren’t good for it.

Be a Good, Responsible, Gentle, and Alert Driver

As a final tip, you should be aware of how you drive your ATV through the trails. For example, you should only ride when you’re fully alert; if you’re feeling tired, are very distracted, or have been drinking/using drugs, then it's not the best time to ride. If you do, you may get into an accident. Furthermore, you should try to go at a steady pace that’s not above the speed limit, as going fast could shorten your response time in an accident. Finally, don’t try to show off, and stay away from tricks and stunts, as these could seriously increase your chances of getting in a wreck.
