Find the Right ATV Style from Dependable BrandsWritten by Mitch Johnson
Continued from page 1
Close in line for dependability and toughness, are all Polaris ATVs. Several of Polaris’ Sportsman ATVs are some of best selling in United States. Polaris ATVs have separate classifications, such as rancher or sport vehicles, but most models can achieve a diversity of tasks in both categories. Several Polaris ATV models are used as farming and hunting quads but they are also reliable as a fast, racy, motocross style vehicle. The fact that Honda and Polaris have utility and sport ATVs that can serve well in both areas may confuse some consumers. Knowing what kind of ATVing you will be doing is best way to determine which ATV will be best to ride. All ATVs are very capable of pushing boundaries of where you can go off road, but some, especially racing quads, need special designs in order to accommodate your uses fully. For this reason, sport ATVs are separated because of their specialty suspension, different type of motors and other race specific features. Sport racing ATVs also have a lighter weight design than utility vehicles for quicker movements. Utility ATVs are commonly used for loading and hauling things, which calls for a larger exterior to carry objects. By knowing difference you can make a better choice. Which category you choose is only significant if you are using ATV for one specific purpose or other. If you’re in middle or you plan on putting your ATV to several uses, both types will get you where you need to go.

Getting Started with Go CartingWritten by Mitch Johnson
Continued from page 1
For any go cart driver, young or old, their position in seat is an important factor for good and safe driving. You should always be comfortable in driving seat with enough, but no too much, moving room between your feet and pedals. Child go carts are designed to position them in safest, most comfortable position where they can reach pedals, steering wheel and any other necessary functions. Adjustable seats are a revolution that has helped solve much of this problem. Nearly any go cart style or design will have adjustable seating, so all you have to do is find right position.
Although kids are a large part of beginner audience of go cart drivers, they are not alone. Many people become interested in cruising around in go carts later in life. Most go carts for grown children and adults will not have engines smaller than four horsepower, but adult beginners do not usually need that safety precaution for too long. A small engine is only helpful to adults for short term because it becomes too easy.
Adults beginning go cart driving can be safe with a typical engine, five to six horsepower, as long as they proceed with caution. Some kid go cart models have a lap seat belt, but adults of all experience levels should wear shoulder sling safety belts. Some go carts even have race car driver double shoulder seat belts which are even better.
