Hopefully you are aware that NOHVCC began a series of free webinars in 2019. The webinars are designed to deliver quality and helpful information on OHV safety, education, management and other issues related to motorized recreation. The series kicked off in January 2019 with a presentation titled “What is NOHVCC?” Subsequent webinars focused on OHV Club and Association Development, Introduction to Mapping and GIS and Effective OHV Economic Impact Studies.

National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) regulations impact all recreational opportunities on Forest Service lands including OHV recreation. As a result, it is important that OHV enthusiasts understand the rules and engage appropriately. If you are interested in learning more, the Forest Service is hosting two webinars to explain proposed updates to its NEPA regulations (note: these are NOT NOHVCC webinars). Details below. The following notice was issued by the U.S.

Groups have a louder voice than an individual.  It is easier to get work accomplished when there is a good team of people pulling in the right direction.  We are all social animals and sometimes we need to participate in activities with others and sharing our passions can elevate our experiences.  This is all true for nearly anything in which we engage.  OHV recreation is no exception.

Representatives from the Motorcycle Industry Council, American Motorcyclist Association, Polaris and KTM recently testified at a hearing before the U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) in opposition to proposed tariffs of up to 100% on all parts, accessories and 500-700cc motorcycles imported from European Union (EU) countries.  The tariffs are a proposed response to a manufacturing dispute in the completely unrelated aircraft industry.  Now it is your turn to weigh in!
