How to Drive in All Terrains - What Speed to Maintain

  1. 1. How to Drive in All Terrains - What Speed to Maintain ATVs are used for both sporting activities like all terrain vehicle racing as well as for tasks on farms and ranches. There are models that are specifically designed for certain tasks and not every one of them can manage high speeds; even then every ATV model is capable of carrying out all basic functions. The rider must be well trained and informed about all the functionalities and parts of the vehicle that they are about to handle. Young and novice riders must positively undertake learning/driving courses before speeding away on bumpy tracks. Moreover, before every single ride, the vehicle must be inspected properly and one must venture out with the vehicle during favorable weather conditions only. How to control speed on an ATV? Any rider who starts driving an ATV gets thrilled by the attainable speed limits. But the following points must be taken care of to prevent an ATV in motion to go out of control: Before starting the ride, an engine must be amply warmed up. The feet should be placed on the footrest. That way, many injuries can be prevented. While shifting into forward gear, the rear brake should be applied. Throttle must always be applied slowly while releasing the parking brake to prevent stunning jolts. Manual clutch vehicles need slow clutch release. Engaging the clutch suddenly might offer a sudden throttle to the vehicle which might give rise to overturning hazards.
  2. 2. While cornering at speeds, excessive braking should be avoided. Turning basics are always mentioned in the vehicle manual. Manufacturers tend to specify certain tips and tricks that a rider must be well aware of. If an ATV has both front and rear brakes, both should be applied at the same time for a perfectly smooth halt. Downhill trips should not use too much throttle. Brake riding must be avoided at this time and the vehicle must be operated at low gears. Steep uphill patches must be avoided because some ATVs cannot surmount them despite a rider’s ability. Uphill climbs also need low gear riding and the rider must move up on the seat, lean forward or stand up with the torso over the front wheels for best balance. In two up vehicles, the passengers must ape the driver’s motions. But it is unadvisable to carry a passenger on mud bikes as the passenger’s weight causes misbalance. Protective Gear for adults and kids on an ATV:
  3. 3. All terrain vehicles are powerful rides and they have a nature of going out of control because of the type of terrain they are ridden upon. So any young rider who mounts an ATV, especially kids, must positively use protective gear. A good quality motorcycle helmet can be used while riding. Some ATV companies offer specially designed helmets particularly with youth models to inculcate the need for safe riding in young off-roading enthusiasts. Alongside helmets, riders must also use quality gloves. Hand gears help to prevent hand fatigue caused by sore, cold and bruised hands. They effectively pad the knuckles, and offer a comfortable grip. Several ATV dealerships offer gears that can be purchased at nominal rates. Strong over the ankle boots act as leg gears. They protect the legs from slipping off footrests. Highway style boots also protect feet, ankles and lower legs. Long sturdy pants, long sleeved shirts or jackets and masks are also part of the protective gear that must be worn by every rider. The rider must always be cautious about bumps, obstacles and sudden weather conditions. Informing someone in advance about the trip is mandatory for a driver’s safety. Sudden braking, carrying a passenger on a single vehicle and steep downhill or uphill patches must be avoided. These simple tricks can make a wholesome ATV riding experience.
