The atv honda is an amazing blending of motorcycle and 4 wheel technology. It comes in many shapes and sizes to appeal to virtually every type of rider; from the youngster to the person up in years. ATV's appeal to the racer and the plodder....to the sportsman and the worker. The versatility is amazing.....and the bottom line is they are DROP DEAD FUN!!!
As it turns out, the Japanese Motorcycle manufacturers are the leaders in ATV technology. Any surprises here?? The atv honda is my favorite...ahem, but some amazingly nice atv's are made by Yamaha, Kawasaki, Suzuki, and Polaris as well, just to name a few.
I would tend to break down the categories of these fine machines into two (2) major categories; Sports ATV Category and the Utility ATV Category. But understand one thing; they are all fun. Talk to a rancher sometime that is using his utility ATV to round up some cattle or to get to an area that he can't get to on his ranch using any other mode of transportation. Ask him if it's all work when he rides that Utility ATV. Nope.....it's fun too.
Many times you will go to a great place for a Sport ATV to flaunt its stuff, and you will see many Utility ATVs riding the trails
or going up steep hills, but usually at a much slower pace than the Sports ATV.
You will see many people decked out in specific atv or motorcycle apparel, proudly displaying the brand or model that they ride.
There are some "do's and don'ts" when riding an ATV.
If you attempt to climb a hill and get stuck on the slope, my suggestion is to lean foward towards the front wheel and slowly back straight down rather than attempting a turn which will usually result in the atv flipping down the hill. And in this scenario, I would try to use the front brake to slow my progress and using the back brake can cause the front end to rear up and once again causing the bike to flip backwards.
Do be respectful of your fellow riders rights and right of way. It is better to back down and live to talk about it than be stubborn and spend the rest of your life in a wheelchair insisting that you had the "right of way".
And of course, DO HAVE FUN!!!
