Here in Colorado, we have grand, beautiful mountains with vast open spaces that support all kinds of outdoor activities. For many of us, this is part of the attraction to the Font Range, and it is plays a part in the everyday life of so many Coloradans.
Some of the favorite ways to spend time in all of that open space involve various kinds of motorsport vehicles: motorcycles, snowmobiles, jet-skis, ATVs and so on. These activities relieve some of the stress of everyday life, and in many cases help keep us healthy. Unfortunately, like any vehicle, these motorsport vehicles can cause serious injury.
How to Be Safe with Motorsport Vehicles
Staying safe while riding these types of vehicles is of paramount importance. Particularly in the more isolated areas where emergency medical service may be far away, and cell phones may not get service to call for help, it is vital to be aware of safety issues. Many of these types of vehicles are not approved for use on public roads. Never drive a vehicle that is not “street legal” on the street.
Always wear a helmet; the use of a DOT compliant helmet while riding has been shown by numerous studies to improve your chances of avoiding serious injury in the event of a crash. Finally, know you skill level. If someone that you are riding with wants to go faster than you are comfortable with, let them know. Also, keep a safe distance from hazards and other riders.
