Knowing More About ATVs San Diego

By Lillian Powell

All terrain vehicles are designed for off-road use. They are used for entertainment but the ATV has a lot of serious uses in farming and construction work. It is important to know what ATVs San Diego are before you consider getting one.

The ATV has a highly recognizable profile. It uses low pressure balloon tires and is steered by a handle bar that looks like that of mountain bike or a motorcycle. The operator sits on it like he would ride a motorbike.

The sport model ATV is lighter and faster than utility models. Although it is a four wheeled vehicle, the sports model is usually two wheel drive. They usually have low center of gravities to help stabilize it during high speed.

A popular way of modifying an ATV is to increase its height by using lift kits. These adds about four inches to the chassis' height. After lift kits are installed, bigger wheels can be used.

Most ATV engines are from 49cc to 1000cc in size. Smaller engines are attached to models designed for youth while the larger engines are for utility ATVs used in farming and construction work.

Most utility models are four wheel drive vehicles. They have trailer hitches and racks behind the driver's seat. They have slower top speeds than sport models because of their size and weight.

One of the main issues in ATV riding is safety. When a rider wears sensible protective gear much of the injuries related to riding the vehicle is addressed. Such include helmets, gloves and eyewear.

There should be a match between the rider and the ATV. Do not assign a big engine ATV to a younger driver. When the driver has adequate protective gear worn then riding ATVs San Diego is basically a fun and safe sport.
