Basic ATV safety isn't hard...

Why do you some of y'all make it seem that way?

May is motorcycle safety month, but I'm going to take this a little further and get some powersport and ATV safety tips up in here. When I was a kid, I can't tell you how many of my friends went out on a summer ride and ran into barbed wire fences while ignoring four wheeler safety. But it's not just kids who get reckless on an ATV, adults often get super awesome in their stupidity and throw alcohol into the mix. It's actually pretty ridiculous.

Y'all need to stay safe so you don't keep me up at night with worry. ATV helmets are important, but so are things such as keeping an eye on your maintenance, ATV tires, and where you plan on doing your ATV riding. It's things like these that can be the difference between walking away with a few bruises and going home in a wooden box. Even if you've heard them before, here's a quick video refresher course on basic ATV safety tips. Might I remind you, these are tips for dummies, but it doesn't hurt for a seasoned professional to have a friendly reminder every now and then. 


Do you have any tips you'd like to add? Leave me a comment and  let me know! Stay safe out there.
