Safety for ATVs and other recreational vehicles

So it has occurred to me that while we sell lots of different types of motorsport type vehicles, such as four-wheelers, Utility vehicles like the Polaris RZR and Yamaha Rhino, and of course motorcycles like the Kawasaki Ninja; We don't talk a whole lot about the safety issues involved with this type of recreation. There are many things to consider about safety when using a vehicle of any of these types.
You must consider clothing choices and head/eye protection for your personal safety. Wearing over-the-ankle boots, long pants and long-sleeved shirts, as well as gloves and goggles, you will protect you from cuts and scrapes and other injuries from low limbs and rocks and other debris.

You must also consider that like other activities involving high speeds and heavy machinery, there are certain risks assumed by the rider of such vehicles. To be as safe as possible, follow common sense safety tips.
1. Get trained 2. WEAR a Helmet 3. No children on ADULT ATVs
4. Don't ride with a passenger 5. Don't ride on pavement
6. Don't ride under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
