When powerslides go bad, the quad will high-side if it hits
a rut or gains a bunch of traction. Leaning to the inside will
help avoid this. If it does happen, try to step off quickly with
both legs and run or fall to the rear and away from the quad.
When fording water, it’s best to go
upstream if possible. If the water is still,
try to keep speeds low enough as to
not let the water flow over your front
fenders. If it does, chances are that
water can make it into your intake and
stall out the engine. If it’s just a short
section, splash away.
