For your safety, all occupants must wear a seat belt (on ROVs), an approved helmet, eye protection, and protective clothing. Never ride on paved surfaces or public roads. Never engage in stunt driving; riding and alcohol/drugs don’t mix and could cause serious injury or even death. Avoid excessive speeds and be particularly careful on difficult terrain. We recommend all ROV operators have a valid driver’s license. Never carry a passenger in the cargo box; occupants must be able to place both feet on the floor while keeping their back against the back of the seat. Arctic Cat recommends that all riders read and understand their operator’s manual before operation. Along with concerned conservationists everywhere, Arctic Cat urges you to “Tread Lightly” on public and private lands. Ride only on designated areas or trails. Preserve your future riding opportunities by showing respect for the environment, local laws, and the rights of others when riding. Never carry a passenger on a single-rider ATV. Only ride an ATV that is right for your age. Supervise riders younger than 16. ATVs are only recommended for users over 12 years old. Arctic Cat recommends that all riders take a training course. For safety or training information in the U.S., call the ATV Safety Institute at (800) 887-2887 or see your dealer. Do not shoot from or lean firearms or bows against the ATV or ROV. ®™ are trademarks or registered trademarks of Arctic Cat Inc. ©2011 Arctic Cat Sales Inc., Thief River Falls, MN 56701.
