RIDING 2-UP ON AN ATV IS DUMB
I travel frequently on bush and logging roads with a passenger on the back of my Polaris Quad.
Since these are non-maintained "roads" (and most are so indicated) I believe that it is totally legal but a lot of my friends tell me that people have been charged by the police for riding 2-up on a roadway - though I don't think that these trails are included in the definition of roads.
Do you know where I could find a definitive answer to this question?
Thanks for your email!
No, I won't help you with a definition of a road or trail but I will ask you - no, implore you - to STOP RIDING 2-UP ON YOUR ATV!
Unless your Sportsman is a Touring model you are putting yourself and most certainly your passenger at risk.
The most dangerous and deadly activity on a four-wheeler aside from riding impaired or helmetless is riding 2-up on an ATV built for one.
It's not a matter of "if" you'll have an accident, it's "when" you'll have an accident.
Think about it.
