Sometimes our blog entries might come off a bit “preachy” on the whole subject of Health & Safety, but it’s only because we’re experts and know from experience what anything from an RC helicopter to mini dirt bikes can do when not handled with the proper respect. The great British winter can often be freezing , blustery, wet and muddy. But at least two of those shouldn’t stop avid riders getting the most out of their mini quads! (Few things in life are more satisfying that powering through a huge muddy puddle, no matter how old you are!) Although a significant portion of our clients are the likes of farmers and rangers looking for a quick, easy way to move about their land, quads can also make fantastic machines for regular folks looking for a bit of outdoor fun. Our 49cc, 50cc and 110cc quads are not road legal, so you won’t be riding to the park or zipping about the roads near your house, but if you can find a large, secluded space to ride, that’s ideal. A great way to get around the whole “no public spaces” riding law is to have a word with a local farmer or landowner. As long as you’re not a nuisance to livestock or the public, some farmers may give you permission to ride on their land. ALWAYS ask first. ALWAYS wear protective head and body gear. The winter can be pretty unforgiving on fingers, so gloves are a must.
