DUNE HEAVEN: BUTTERCUP SAND DUNES

Dune Heaven On our many treks to the Southern California dunes, there is a little oasis of a place near the legendary Glamis sand dunes that consistently gets over­looked.  A bit of dune heaven, as it were. It is called the Buttercup Dunes Recreation Area, and the Dirt Wheels staff took off for a weekend there recently to get a feel for these dunes that are nestled near the Arizona/California/Mexico border. DUNE PATROL ISSUES A KETCH-22 Unfortunately, on our most recent ex­cursion there, we were confronted by the…

UTAH OFF-ROAD RENTALS & GUIDED TOURS

By the staff of Dirt Wheels UTAH OFF-ROAD RENTALS & GUIDED TOURS Utah has everything from stark salt flats to lush forests and mountain meadows, but when off-roaders think of the state, most mentally see red rock vistas. Areas like Zion, Bryce Canyon, Monument Valley, and Moab have burned this impression on our minds. But after riding with Utah Off-Road Rentals and Guided Tours, we found that red slick rock is sweet, but Utah has more to offer off-roaders. Utah Off-Road is based out of La Verkin, Utah, not…

POLICE SEND MESSAGE ABOUT STREET RIDING

Authorities in Hartford, Connecticut are sending a clear message about joy riding on the streets and in area parks. Efforts would have been better spent auctioning off the machines to areas with legal trails bringing in tens of thousands of dollars into the city coffers. Connecticut is a very liberal run state and has almost no legal OHV trails so we don’t expect much from the leaders to know much in the off road arena.    This disturbing video was brought to you by WFSB Channel 3 Eyewitness News…

HISTORY LESSON: QUAD RACING CIRCA 1987 Back in the 1980s, ATV racing was hot. Top riders raced several circuits that crisscrossed the entire county not just the East Coast. The top riders of the day may be some names you still hear about now racing UTVs, building engines, running tire companies, or promoting national dirt bike races.

UTAH OFF-ROAD ISSUE

UTAH OFF-ROAD ISSUE The state of Utah will no longer be honoring off-highway vehicle registrations from any other states beginning on Jan. 1, 2020. In past years, Utah has had standing agreements with some other states to honor each other’s OHV registration. This meant that visitors to Utah who had OHVs registered in states like Nevada were not required to obtain a nonresident user permit or pay a non-resident fee. In the 2019 General Session, the Utah Legislature passed H.B. 105, which removed this option from…
