Recently I joined a news group that opposes motorized use of public lands. At first I didn’t write any post, I just sat back and read the e-mails each day. Finally one subject in a digest e-mail caught my attention. I responded with a short note that disagreed with the author of the original post. Each day there was a new post and I had to defend motorized recreation. This weekend a member wrote a long degrading and insulting post, and I responded in much the same tone. Today I received an e-mail that read.

We have tried to accommodate your strong views, but it appears that you have such a low opinion of anyone who opposes the use of mechanized rec vehicles there is no use to continue your participation. Therefore your subscription to this news group has been cancelled.

That’s fine with me. I learned something from this. There is no point in trying to talk to those who oppose us. Their level of contempt and intolerance for us is beyond reasonable levels. Fairness is not in their lexicon. The time and effort was a total waste. I could have used that energy to write my representatives in Washington D.C. , so that’s exactly what I’m going to do. I encourage you to do the same. They have to listen to us, those who oppose us, and the BLM, Forest Service, Park Service etc DON’T and they won’t. Call your Senators at 202-224-3121, the House of Representatives at 202-225-3121, and The President at 202-456-1111. Call, send e-mail, letters, faxes, whatever works best for you. Now more than ever we must roar like a lion, or be slaughtered like a lamb. Please get involved ,when we get together as a group, we get results. Join an organization, there are many listed on my website ATVs Today All Terrain Vehicles Quads Trails. Click on the button”Keeping Our Trails Open” Join as many as you can. It looks like Tellico is lost, and the recent ban on child size dirt bikes and ATVs is still in effect. Believe me , with the political climate in Washington, we stand to lose it all, I mean it, ALL, EVERYTHING. Don’t let us get Kicked Out, please help.

Thank You

Bob Crandall

      I’m looking for a top end kit for a Yamaha. I would like to see how well the engine runs before spending $6-$7 hundred on oem. Niche has complete kits from $1-$2 hundred.  Anyone have experience with Niche or similar Chinese companies?

      Does anyone use GPS, whether on a device or app to record their ATV trail rides? I have been thinking about a section where our members can upload let's say a .gpx file and share their rides on a google map for others to see where there are riding areas. Not sure if this is something of interest or how much it would be used, so just trying to get an idea.
      Importing routes from files like xml, lmx, tour, freshroute, gpx, kmz, kml
