A friend contacted me last week and told me he had just bought some tracks for his Arctic Cat 700. He told me he and some Search & Rescue friends of his, who also have tracks, were going for a ride and asked if I wanted to come along and see some new country. :toetap05c: Gee … does a bear …. In the woods ?? HELL YEAH !! :hurrayc: HOWEVER, I wasn’t crazy that this area was up by a ski resort, on a narrow, windy road and on a weekend. But heck, it still sounded better than stay’in home in the inversion we’re in at home. There were five of us, the friend on an Arctic Cat 700, one Yamaha Rhino, one Polaris 4 seater RZR, one snowmobile, & myself on the “Bad To The Bone” Can-Am 800 Outlander MAX. :coolgleamAc: The area is called “Aspen Grove” and it’s up Provo Canyon by Sundance Ski Resort. The days ride would be road riding which isn’t my preferred type of track riding, but again, it beats stay’in home. Also, this country is REAL steep, so I’m not sure we could of done much boon-docking anyways. But all was good as it was. Lots of people were out too. We saw a several out walk’in their dogs, several cross country skiers, one guy on a fat wheeled mountain bike, one runner, and several other snowmobilers. We had a couple issues during the day. At the beginning the Arctic Cat had some EFI fault code thing going on and the bike didn’t want to run, but the guy did something and got it to run OK. Later, the 4 seater Polaris was do’in a little play’in and hit a rock with his right rear tracks and knocked it off the drive sprocket. :slap: We got the track back on, but it appeared he may have bent the large front bogie wheel support too. So he’ll have to check that out. It was a great day to be in the out-of-doors. The sun was out, the sky was blue, and there was snow, beautiful scenery, a bunch of friendly guys & no worries. What more could a guy ask for I ask ya ?? :woot: Here’s a short video of the days ride. [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RauILQAnJoI]19 Jan 2013 - Aspen Grove Ride - YouTube[/ame] ...

Thanks to a collaborative effort between a broad coalition of OHV enthusiasts, sportsmen, conservationists, elected officials and the public, new laws that will help better manage Arizona’s rapidly growing OHV use will take effect Jan. 1, 2009. Among other provisions, the new law requires an annual purchase of an Off-Highway Vehicle Decal for the operation of any ATV or OHV in Arizona that meets both the following criteria: Designed by the manufacturer primarily for travel over unimproved terrain. Has an unladen weight of eighteen hundred pounds or less. Why is the new law needed? OHV use in Arizona has exploded (347 percent increase since 1998), outpacing the existing funding to manage that growth, protect wildlife habitat, and help maintain recreational access. Revenues generated from the new OHV Decal user fee will be used to help ensure sustainable opportunities and natural resource protection by bolstering funding and grant programs that pay for trail maintenance, signage, maps, facility development, habitat damage mitigation, education, and enforcement. What does the new law do? It specifies OHV Decal, title, license plate and registration requirements. It specifies equipment requirements. It specifies regulations for safe, ethical and responsible operation.
