You know you raised your son right when you start the sleds and he says 'Dad, I love that smell!!


If you don't turn around to look at your sled when you walk away, you bought the wrong sled!

Very nice. In Kalkaska we can ride the side of the road under 25 mph. I would still like to street legal the rhino so I can drive the road at speed.

Not for sure, but I think it's $16.75 for ATVs.

I think they said $32 next year and then $48 the following year. Then after thatt the DNR can adjust them up for inflation etc

That's the numbers I heard as well. I'd like to see trails groomed or an established ATV route that would connect all the existing ORV trails throughout Michigan. You can't even do 20miles on these Upper Penninsula trails without getting a sore bum, they need portions groomed from time to time. I know some of the trails in the L.P. get smoothed out, would be nice to get that going everywhere and be more appealing for out-of-stater's/ tourism. I don't mind a couple of whoops sections it get old when there's one section after another though!
1996 440 mxz w/ 583, custom exhaust and can, raised seat, EPI clutch kit, 1.25 ripsaw, 168 woody's, dual carbide tcs ski's, egt guages, etc. over 11,900 mi. on this chassis

One aspect I feel is a real negative is the banning of ATV's on seldom used USFS roads. I'm talking specifically of the USFS roads North of Sidnaw in the U.P.. These roads may see a wheeled vehicle on average every 30 minutes in the off season, a little more often during the Fall hunting season. I talked to a USFS official about this & he said it was a 'safety issue' & I could write a letter to their headquarters in Wash D.C..

This is at a time when MI has opened up more county roads to allow ATVs to ride along the edges to get out into the woods. Just more 'incrementalism' at work.

It would be much better to just ride on the road at the speed limit because well??
Try living on a paved road when ATV's go by all the time or drive down it... :o

I agree on this. We have been ridding our 4 seat Razer on the sides of the roads up by our cabin a bunch this Spring and feel uncomfortable holding up cars behind us because they don't want to pass. I'm not complaining to much though because at least we can ride the roads now like we do on the sleds.
