for riding ATV on trails in the woods what gear would be best. what about for going across a creek about 1 ft. or 2 ft. deep?

if you cannot figure something as simple as that out you need not be an owner of an atv.

you have atv trails? all we have is leftover snowmobile trails that still don't allow atvs. i guess once we all quit buying snowmobiles and switch over, things will improve, but it takes 40 years for cars or space travel or computers or anything to get entrenched and routine. but that's not all bad - meanwhile recognize a trend, climb on board and make some money with it :)

Well, whats the best gear for not rough trails in the woods?

Too many variables in your question. No easy answer, only common sense. Match gear to terrain and driver's skill level.

I agree with the above post, Better yet have about a quarter inch armour plate for your backsides if I catch you..........

Hi everyone.., seems clear that you guys
are trying to save cooper's neck. Christmas is the season here in PR where the most fatal ATV accidents occurs.
At this very moment a neightborhood boy of about 9y/old is driving up and down the road on a beautiful youth size Harley look-a-like. He's having the time of his life; without a helmet.
My youngest daughter used to ride with her dad one of those ATV's, always with her helmet, but still it was a big worry to me... Not anymore, thank goodness.

PS: what's so bad about-"ATV on trails in the woods what gear would be best. What about for going across a creek about 1 ft. or 2 ft. deep"-
just wondering..I'm a complete ignorant about these things..

patria , around here they leave gates open , cattle are out and gone, they cut fences, tear up hay fields etc. and when they are confronted they make it look like they are the wronged person, takes lots of labour and money to fix up the mess and thats not even including picking up the garbage and booze bottles they leave behind . some will say its only a few bad apples ,well if thats the case then we must have the whole barrel of bad apples around here, i asked a guy what he would do if he found me in his back yard in town someday , his reply was littered with all kinds of threats, me quite frankly ive had enough they want to destroy stuff ,they can destroy their own cause if i catch them on mine ,from now on it gets nasty.

Toolman, I can sympathize with a nation wide problem. If your land is posted, especially if your gate has been opened, we in WI. consider that trespassing. Keep a pen and pad in your shirt pocket, start taking ATV registration numbers and names if possible and file a complaint. A few tire spikes just inside the gate may also discourage future unlawful entries

Jim, that would be good to get the registration numbers and turn them into the police but there are alot of them that do not regester these things. Also in PA the stickers are not very large you have to get close and they don't usually let you get that close. I'd even like to have one of the utility models someday for gathering firwood and mending fences and such, but I'll probably just use it right on my own place. Hope you had a merry Christmas.

If'n I find a ATV'r in my creek on my land, I take his/er keys and claim it as mine. Any problems, he/er can get a warden, pay the fine and git the machine back. That's how we cross criks in da U.P. of Michigan.

Toolman, seems like you guys have your hands full with these a$$holes, and no one to enforce the law to protect private property, properly.
Here our mayor pest is the noise from a car that has had the exaust pipe changed for a biger one, don't know exactly how the part is called but these guys run up and down the roads, everywhere in pr, with their expensive car music systems with the volume to the highest playing what seems to be the new trend in what they call music, with the control buttons set to the highest on the base and the treble on the lowest.
I like ATVs, and at least to my knowledge there are no complaints about trespassing, but there are laws against driving them on the roads, and still they do it all the time and nobody is around to enforce them either.
