One of the biggest joys of riding an ATV through a forest is encountering a huge mud puddle and plowing right through it. It goes against every warning you ever heard from your mother to stay clean. On an ATV, dirt it is allowed and expected.
Once you’re done with your ride, you take off your dried and mucked up clothes and jump in the shower, as pristine as the day you were born. But what about your ATV?
If you are hard-pressed to tell what color your ATV actually is, begin with a pre-soak after the machine has cooled down. Spray your mud-caked machine with a heavy spray of water, then let it soak in. When it looks as though its thoroughly soaked, repeat. It may take a few rounds.
