ATV Safety and Care

I’ve been working really hard for the past few years, and I’ve been really careful with my money. Recently, I was finally able to make a purchase that I’ve been dreaming about making for a long time. I bought an ATV! I used to ride my friend’s ATV sometimes in high school, and I have wanted one of my own for so, so long. When I told my friends and siblings, they were really excited for me. Then I told me mom, and she freaked out.

My mom is scared that I’m going to hurt myself on my ATV. I sort of understand that, so I told her that I’d do my best to be safe. But saying that made me realize that I don’t really know how to to care for my ATV and make sure that it’s always in safe shape. Experts, can you give me a crash course in responsible ATV ownership? It would help me out — and would make my mom feel a whole lot better, too!
