Safety First – Getting Started with Off-Roading

Off-roading is becoming a popular pastime in Troy, and why not? With so much natural beauty around, there’s never going to be a shortage of creative ways to appreciate this beautiful country. However, as fun as off-roading is, it’s important to make safety a priority. Nothing fun is ever not somewhat dangerous, right?

The first thing to know about off-roading is that you shouldn’t just go to any open public land and go nuts. Off-road trails dedicated to the sport exist pretty much everywhere, and it’s very easy to find them online. Also, not all off-road trails are meant for all types of vehicle – some are only suited for ATVs, others for mountain or dirt bikes, others for standard vehicles. Know which trails are suited for which, for your safety and everyone else’s as well.

Also, always pack prepared – tire repair and replacement kits, a roll cage, proper winches and jacks and other common sense vehicular safety tools are a must.

To learn more about being off-road-ready, and to get insider information on the best trails and services in the area, come see us at Carbone Subaru, we love this sport too!
