What To Expect Driving In The Sand

So I know we have a lot of veteran side x side sand drivers here, and thought it would be a great idea to share with others some of the do's and don'ts of driving a side x side in the sand.

Personally this will be my first year of driving a side x side in the sand, however, I am not new to it (atvs)

Anyhow, thought some of you veterans could share what first timers could expect for their first trip to the sand.

..

1. Hang on to the steering wheel very tightly, and keep your thumbs on the outside of the wheel.

2. Watch closely for/avoid "witches eyes".

3. Run your desert tires at around 3-4lbs.

4. Momentum is your friend.

5. Keep her pinned.

6. Try to keep your cheeks from cramping due to the constant smile.

Then go out at night and do the same,,,, totally different feeling.

mantis has good info,

But in reality you need to ride with people who know the dunes very well and can help you by watching and giving feedback.

A whole bunch of us here know the dunes and the sxs way of driving them there also.

There are some very good leaders here that will help too.

Crest the dune before going over...never just go strait up and over......

Momentum is key especially in the bigger dunes..........

always ride with someone else...you dont want to ge stuck by yourself out in the middle of nowhere........

Eyes open watching for other riders.......

Why yes I do, would be one of the best places for the camera for shooo.

DP as long as you get a couple of day rides in with us, you can hang back with me for your first ride. then on the next night ride you can fall in line where ever you wish, if you dare. HA HA. HOpe you got Nerf bars LOL

IT is an adventure for sure. Last year we had about 25-30 in one line (mostly one line) and it is a sight to see.

Jim said that becasue I like the back of the line, some say I am the AAA of the dunes, I do not like leaving people out there. I have my radios now so I will be able to tell Bordhead ( BooYaaCrew Night ride leader) if there is an issue with anyone. AND there probably will be!!!! HAHA

Good times.
