ATV ruts are my nemesis. No matter how slow I go in late summer the weeds hide them and either my back tire falls in one which sends my front tire into another or visa versa. And plop I tip over and have to fight to get going again.

Sometimes if I can find them I just give up and ride in them, but if they get too deep it raises hell with my pegs and feet.

Going any faster ain't the answer either.

Anyone else constantly fighting the ATV ruts?

Those ATV ruts are @#$%&! Just don't let that back tire wander into another rut! In late summer off the beaten track they are sneaky for sure when you can't see them.

Most of the Trails I ride here are ATV trails so this is a common problem for me. My father had a nasty spill because of this and had his DR650 land on his ankle. He's in a cast now...

I just pick the easiest looking rut or center mound and ride there. or if its too bad I'll make my own trail beside it if there's room
