After mastering this straight line technique, it’s time to move on to cornering. Unlike an automobile, most ATVs have a much narrower wheelbase and hence require body language to properly corner. The following techniques are critical to proper turning: Move your body weight forward and to the inside of the turn prior to entering the apex. Turn the handlebars while turning your head in the direction of the turn. Counterweight the machine’s natural tendency to tip outward while cornering by leaning to the inside. If the sensation of loss of control is eminent, gradually reducing the throttle and make the turn wider than anticipated. Hills: To climb, shift the machine into a lower gear and try to build as much of your speed up before actually reaching the incline. The key to conquering ascents is momentum, not raw power. When approaching the uphill climb, move up on the seat and lean forward, or if the grade is particularly steep, stand and position your torso over the front wheels. Apply the throttle as required to maintain momentum until you crest the hill. To descend begin by selecting a path that is both as straight as possible with minimum obstacles/ obstructions.
