Out of the House and Into the Go-Kart
Summer means one thing—getting out of the house. That can mean anything from a week spent camping to a day trip to a state park. Whatever the outdoor excursion, a go-kart can make a fun and exciting addition to your ad-venture.
Go-karts are great for your use on your private property, but have you ever thought of where else it can go? You should always be sure that the terrain you take your go kart on is safe and, of course, legal. Lindsey DeLong of American Sportworks said customers are sometimes surprised by where their go-kart can go.
“Several states accept go-karts as off-road recreation at various public places like parks, lake communities and national or federal trails and forests,” DeLong said. “Chances are (go-kart owners) might be surprised at some of the great options for family outings within a reasonable day-trip driving distance.”
“Over the years, customers of American SportWorks go-karts have taken kindly to trail riding and ‘mudding,’ along with driving in, through, around, or over most all manner of flora and fauna, field and stream, dirt and gravel,” DeLong said. “We do get some great customer feedback, and there is a wealth of information available on the Inter-net, like YouTube videos of customers having a blast.”
Before venturing off to the unknown, check first with government websites or local authorities to be sure what is allowed and where you can ride legally. And remember, unlicensed motorized vehicles cannot operate on sidewalks or roads. No paved roads? No worries! The messier terrain off-road is where American Sportworks go-karts were meant to be. Just remember to stay safe and respect the environment.
All American Sportworks models are recommended for riders ages 13 and up. Proper gear should always be worn and safety precautions should always be followed.
The models include the deluxe, electric start Carbide which has a 150cc single cylinder, air-cooled, 4-stroke en-gine and a one-year engine warranty. The Marauder comes with a 208cc, 4-stroke engine and a three-year engine warranty. The Black Widow also comes with a three-year engine warranty and has a 136cc, 4-stroke engine.
The whole family can enjoy the fun and thrill of a go-kart ride, not just the kids! Take Dad out for a spin and make this Father’s Day an adventurous one with a ride on your very own go-kart.
