      ATV Safety Week

      The ATV Safety Institute will provide free rider training for the second straight year during ATV Safety Week this spring. The ASI is again working with partners across America who will be volunteering to provide free ATV RiderCourses and other safety education June 6–14.

      “The first step toward safe ATV riding is taking the ASI RiderCourse, and we’re making it available to adults, kids and families all over the country early in the riding season,” says Cam Arnold, ASI’s vice president of rider training. “ATV Safety Week is about promoting the eight Golden Rules for safe riding, and we can think of no better way than to offer our class at no charge to participants. We invite everyone with an ATV to meet our Instructors, have some fun, and learn how to ride ATVs safely.”

        Cody Rahders LORRS

        With the Lucas Oil Off-Road Regional Series holding both Rounds 2 and 3 on the same weekend, Cody Rahders took the opportunity to rebound from a DNF while leading at Round 1 to win both Round 2 and 3 of the Production 1000 class, in his 2015 Polaris RZR XP 1000 EPS.

        After spending Friday with Justin Lambert of Cognito Motorsports taking lap times and Brandon Hong from Sparks Racing dialing in his clutch, Rahders went on to place second in Saturday’s qualifier for Round 2 of the series. In the main event, he started in fourth position and by the exit of turn one, he was leading and never looked back for his first win of the 2015 season.

          According to the patent application, the seat has an “angle adjustment mechanism which adjusts an angle of the saddle-type seat main body with respect to the vehicle body in accordance with a signal from a detection unit that detects a traveling state of the straddle-type vehicle when the straddle-type vehicle is turning.”
