Back in December I wrote about a project in Cave Creek, AZ to create a family friendly riding area at a spot that historically had little management and lacked facilities. This lead to a proliferation of user- created trails, sanitation issues, and resource degradation near the staging area. Recently work began to start managing the area and create a family friendly destination. This effort began by partnering with the Tonto

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.

A troubling trend

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!
