Transcript for Posture

A person is riding an ATV in the sitting position.

Correct riding posture matters. Like riding a bike, you need to shift your weight as you maneuver your ATV. Proper posture ensures that you can quickly shift your weight when necessary and easily reach the controls.

Proper posture includes:

  • Head and eyes up, looking far ahead.
  • Hands on the handlebars.
  • Feet on the footrests, toes pointing straight ahead.

Removing one hand or foot can reduce your ability to control the ATV, or it could cause you to lose balance and fall off.

If you remove your feet from the footrests or drag your feet on the ground, you could be seriously injured if your feet get under the rear wheels.
