Craigslist Go Karts

Go Karts Are Not Just For the Asphalt

Craigslist Go KartsOff road go karts are becoming increasingly more popular as they provide a higher degree of safety and are usually designed to carry 2 to 4 passengers. Most people when they think of a go kart picture a vehicle very low to the ground that races on an oval asphalt track with room for only one rider. This is typical but there is another breed of go karts used on the off road.

This off road go kart actually has much higher ground clearance for traveling over rough terrain. An off road go kart also is equipped usually with a safety cage and in some cases an additional roll bar. The tires are much different as they are designed to travel over very rugged ground and are much larger and beefier than a street go kart tire. An off road go kart will typically come in 2 or 4 wheel drive.

You will find that an off road go kart will range in engine size as well, from 90cc all the way up to 1100cc. In addition you will see that several models of the off road go kart are also equipped with a wench in the event you get in a situation where you need to be towed out of a tight spot. Several models of the off road go kart also come with reverse which can come in handy when there is no way out but to back up.

An off road go kart is designed for children and adults alike and makes for a great experience for those who love the outdoors and enjoy motor sport vehicles. Keep in mind that unlike an atv which generally carries only one passenger, you can have a lot of fun with one off road go kart and carry up to 4 and sometimes even 6 passengers.

Remember when driving an off road go kart to protect yourself by wearing an approved helmet for safety. Other items of attention for safety would be in regards to alcohol consumption while driving or riding in an off road go kart. This is extremely dangerous and could cause a severe accident, injuries and possibly someone their life. This cannot be over emphasized. Another safety tip is never over load your vehicle with passengers. Always limit passenger load to the number of seats available and safety belts are advisable. Lastly, one small safety item that could save you some pain is a whip antenna. These are helpful when you are traveling over steep terrain such as sand dunes. As you come to the crest of a dune you may not be able to see if another vehicle is emerging from the other side and if your engine is loud you will not hear them either. With a whip antenna and a large colorful flag attached to the top, the other vehicle has a very good chance of spotting the flag and thus can avoid a collision. These tips should be helpful in keeping your off road experience a safe and enjoyable time.
