Before Heading Out
When operating machines that are powerful, heavy, fast and can easily be thrown off balance, wearing the right clothing and protective gear is as important as knowing how to operate your machine. You’ll want to be protected if you get thrown from your machine onto a pile of jagged rocks, or a fallen tree, or... well, everything out there is going to be hard and sharp to land on. So, suit up!
Understand that rider equipment requirements will vary depending on the state you’re operating in. However, no matter where you’re riding ,the most important thing you can do is make sure your head is in a helmet every, single time you feel the engine rumble beneath you. Head injuries are the #1 killer in OHV-related deaths. But your head isn’t the only thing you should be protecting.
