You just got an ATV…now what? When you own an ATV, there are some basics that you want to cover as a beginner. This is going to keep you safe and ensure that your ATV is safe as well. Taking some time to make sure you know what you’re doing can make all the difference in the world.
Invest in Safety Gear
Now that you have your ATV, you also want to invest in some safety gear. Choose a helmet that fits properly, goggles, and dress comfortably each time you ride. This includes over the ankle boots as well as long pants and a long shirt. In cold weather, it is also a good idea to have a tight fitting jacket.
You want to make sure you practice so you know how to handle the ATV in all conditions. It can be advantageous to take some training lessons if you have never ridden an ATV in the past.
File Your Paperwork
Some paperwork needs to be filed when you’re in Alabama. This includes registering the ATV with the state. You should also obtain an insurance policy for your ATV so that you can rely on insurance in the event that there is damage or theft so that it’s not all out of pocket.
