RIDER SAFETY TIP: KNOW YOUR ROLE
Do you own a snowmobile? Did you know that YOU are 100% responsible for providing instruction to any young or inexperienced rider you allow to use your machine? NEVER hand your keys over without first showing that rookie the ropes and never allow a youngster to operate a machine before they are ready for the responsibility that comes along with being a rider.
