Quad bikes have become an essential vehicle for many working in land-based industries but they should be treated with respect.
In a working environment, quad bikes are often on well-worn routes that the rider knows well. But outdoor conditions can change by the minute. When quads are used for recreation, part of the fun is the "exploring" aspect. But conditions can still be hazardous and there is the "unexpected" with which to contend.
Although no statistics are available, we hear of too many quad bike accidents. My advice is to always wear a BS-approved crash helmet whenever you are riding your quad bike. And if you have not already done so, enrol on a training course.
