If you’re cruising on forest trails, you’ll encounter a fallen tree eventually. Some fallen logs can be avoided by simply going around them, but if you’re on a narrow trail your options may be limited to either going over it or turning around and going back.

Rolling over a fallen tree straight on can lead to your machine getting stuck with the front two wheels dangling over it. To avoid getting hung up on the log, approach it at an angle and roll over it one wheel at a time. this method works well on deep rain ruts, too.
