Get Ready for an Exciting Year of Off-Roading: How to Start 2023 off with the Right foot (or wheels)

Starting off 2023 right! It’s an exciting time to be involved in off-roading, especially if you are among the countless riders who own SXS, UTVs, motorcycles, snowmobiles, and ATVs. Or maybe you’re one of those lucky people with all types of powersport vehicles such as jet skis or dirt bikes? Whatever type of ride you have, this is your chance to make sure that this year begins on the right foot (or wheels).

Starting off 2023 right, Here’s how:

1. Make sure you have the latest safety gear and equipment. Off-roading can be dangerous, so it’s essential to ensure that your vehicle is adequately equipped for the terrain and conditions in which you’ll be riding. Check that your tires are properly inflated, your brakes are functioning smoothly, and all your lights and signals are working. Ensure you have the proper protective gear and clothing for your ride, such as helmets, goggles, gloves, and boots.

2. Get familiar with your area’s local laws and regulations for off-roading. Different states have different rules and regulations in place regarding off-roading, so be sure to check with your local government to ensure you’re operating within the law.

3. Take a refresher course in off-roading safety and technique. Even if you feel like an experienced rider, brushing up on your skills can help you stay safe while out on the trails, investing in a quality instructional program or book can help you learn the basics and stay up to date on best practices.

4. Plan your trips with friends and family. Off-roading is more fun when it’s done with a group of people! Make sure to plan your rides in advance, considering any terrain that might be challenging for the less experienced riders in your group. And don’t forget to bring plenty of snacks, drinks, and a tool kit.

5. Stay informed on the state of off-roading in your area. There are lots of places to get information on trail closures or changes with local public lands that might affect you and your off-roading group. Sign up for newsletters or alerts from local clubs and organizations, or follow them on social media to stay updated.

These are just a few tips to help you get your year off right when it comes to off-roading. Remember, safety first! Have fun out there, but never take unnecessary risks. Happy trails!
