One thing you’re going to need when you are on an ATV is common sense, so try to keep things simple and get to know your ride over time and make your ATV experience a safe one:

  • Start simple – You may want to pick a high performance ride, but too much power can be bad. You don’t want to lose control of your ATV early on.
  • Check the manual – The owner’s manual is able to pinpoint what is necessary to operate your vehicle the right way. 
  • Educate yourself – Before fire up your vehicle, you should invest a few hours on ATV safety training. The ATV Safety Institute is a great place to start. RiderCourse offers thorough ATV training, and some states offer training subsidies, so check with your DMV. If you’ve recently purchased your ATV, training may be free.
  • Solid footing – As a new rider, make sure to have a solid footing, you’ll have enough to think about without worrying about what to do with your feet. With Nerf bars and heel guards, you’ll get the stability you need. Nerf bars are like giant foot pegs that allow you to keep your feet planted during your ride. Heel guards keep your feet where you want them, giving you more control while riding your ATV.
  • Stay off the street – The ATVs are licensed “off-highway” and are not safe or designed for certain pavements. Also, it may be illegal.Check with the DMV to learn more about restrictions.

The Throttle on your ATV

Bring along an experienced friend, who can coach you along the way. Stay aware, and get a feel for the way your ride accelerates. Take a look at our ATV throttle tips:

  • Start slow – The accelerator on an ATV is actually a thumb throttle that you press. Getting the feel of the throttle is important for new riders to help build confidence. Giving it too much gas can cause the ATV’s front end to pop up.
  • Purchase high-test gasoline – Filling up with high-octane fuel can keep your machine running smoother for the rest of the ride, having a better performance.

Wear the proper ATV riding gear

Always remember that the right gear can make a huge difference on preventing serious injuries, so here are a few points about ATV gear:

  • Protective clothing – New riders should invest in the necessary protective gear, so make sure you have a protective jacket, good boots that go above your ankle, a DOT-certified helmet, gloves and goggles. Don’t forget a chest protector and knee/shin guards for further protection.
  • Get a good helmet – You’ll be glad to invest in a good DOT-certified helmet, because you’ll protect your self not only from head injuries, but also from ducking branches and catching dirt from the ride in front of you. Off-road/Motocross helmets offer full-face protection and a solid section of molding that protects your chin and jaw. They also cut down on noise and protect you from flying insects.

Tips and Advices for your ATV tour at Tulum 2

Learn about ATV Shifting

Depending on the type of ATV you’ve got, you may have to ramp up on manual shifting. Usually the left foot will control the shifting lever and the left hand controls the clutch. Your right thumb will typically manage your speed with a spring-loaded throttle.

You’ll find there’s a finesse to managing the throttle and the release of the clutch to prevent stalling. Here are a few other ATV transmission tips:

  • Practice changing gears – Usually when someone taught you to drive, they probably take you to a parking lot, and you practice until you get how the clutch and shifting works. You will be able to apply the same lesson to new ATV rides.
  • Make your controls second nature – You’ll become familiar with the ATVs controls over time, so don’t get mad if at the beginning you get confused, instead, practice with all your controls until you get it right before going on.

 ATV Posture and riding positions

A good ATV posture can be useful to feel balanced and in control while riding. Simply keeping your feet planted and your hands firmly gripping the handles at all times can prevent injury. Here are a few other ATV posture tips:

  • Work on your position – While you’d lean into a curve on a dirt bike, on an ATV you lean to the opposite side of momentum. So, if you’re turning right, you’ll feel pushed to the left, and you’ll want to lean right.
  • Know when to hover – When you’re on a flat trail enjoying the sights, go ahead and sit down. But if you’re picking up speed on a livelier trail, you’ll need to stand up. Remain just above the seat, with your elbows out and knees bent, and enjoy the ride. Hovering gives you greater visibility and will end up making you a better rider.
  • Stay loose – You’re riding on terrain that can have unexpected bumps and dips. So remember to avoid locking your elbows, and keep your knees bent to absorb the movement along the way.
  • Practice makes perfectMastering a skill will take time, even for riding an ATV, so here are some tips to master the art of riding ATVs:
  • Deliberate practice is key – Start with a goal, realistic expectations will help you to improve.
  • Practice by isolating tasks – Revisit situations that troubled you in the past. Approach these passes carefully, and remember that quality over quantity yields the best results. Takes time to become skilled –  Remember to suit up and practice on various terrains. As you slowly increase your skill, you’ll find your coordination and riding abilities will improve. And you’ll experience real 4-wheeling fun.
