All About ATV's

ATV's, or All Terrain Vehicles are small open motor vehicles with large tires used as a means of transportation across rugged off-road terrain. These vehicles are ridden by a driver and controlled with motorcycle-style hand controls. The throttle is on the right hand grip, and the brakes are controlled by a handle on the left hand grip. These vehicles are a fun and exciting way to experience the wilderness, and can be a useful means of transportation in rural settings.

There are many different types of ATV's from companies such as Honda, Polaris, Kawasaki, Suzuki, Yamaha, and Arctic Cat. Each company has a variety of models and varying engine sizes for each model. The basic choice you will have to make when purchasing an ATV is whether you are going to use it for work or for recreation. Utility ATV's are used for hunting, fishing and farming. They are predominantly used for navigating difficult terrain and covering long distances off-road. The second type of ATV are the sport models, which are used for recreation and racing.

Once you have decided on which ATV is right for you the next thing to purchase will be protective equipment. ATV's are fast and exciting but they also can be potentially dangerous and it is always recommended that riders wear a helmet and protective clothing. Heavy-duty gloves and boots are a must and riders should also replace their sunglasses with goggles for eye protection. Most ATV accidents are caused by rider error and carelessness. Riders should always be aware of their surroundings and the speeds they are traveling at.

Riding ATV's are a great way to travel over rough terrain, they can help farmers with tough jobs and can be an exciting way to experience the outdoors. Whether you are looking for a utility ATV or a sport ATV it is important to take a safety class before going out on your own.
