So don't get too excited to load your precious lifestyle toy on the back of your truck (Go to this site to see an award-winning ATV loading ramp) and here are some important considerations to make before setting out on overnight ATV trip.
Wear the Right Gear and Equipment
All ATV riders must wear protective gear including helmets, gloves, goggles, boots, protection jackets, protective knee and elbow pads and the like to ensure full riding safety.
A helmet light can come in very handy for camping or evening riding. You can find ones that can be mounted both on the helmet or your handlebars.
Find a comfortable pack big enough to carry various items such as your extra clothing, food, mobile phone, walkie talkie and of course Water. Don’t forget to throw in a few tools (3 way pack wrench, pump, spare tube) that you might need along the way.
Some ATVs come with a basic repair kit for changing things such as spark plugs and replacing fuses so make sure you take yours with you. Carry a tire air pump and tire patch kit with you on the ATV at all times. The rough terrain can be hard on your tires. In addition, don’t forget to carry a working tire pressure gauge with you on the ATV.
First Aid Kit & Survival Kit
Have a first aid kit with any personal medication, adhesive tape, antiseptic wipes, sterile gauze pads and make sure that all the contents inside are clean and in good condition.
Know Where You’re Going
As far as the campsite goes, make sure you pick a spot that you have researched to avoid getting lost or winding up somewhere dangerous.
Bring Appropriate Gear
Before you leave for your excursion, check what the weather will be like and make sure you have appropriate gear for both wet and dry climate conditions.
Basic camping gear includes:
- Ground cloth/tarp
- Sleeping bag
- Socks/extra socks
- Trash bags
Have a fun ride and respect the outdoors!
