Actually, I've had it for a few months now.

I noted that Michigan grew from 1.49 MILLION ohv using residents in the 2007 study, to 1.6 MILLION ohv residents in 2008.



So if there were only 350,000 or so ATV/Dirtbike registrations in 2008, how many of the remaining 1,250,000 resident ohv enthusiasts drive 4x4s?

I'd bet at least a million of them.

and it seems that everywhere is illegal anymore except the parks. this 2wd rule is BS and not being able to traverse a trail or mudhole is too, allot of states promote this hobby along with friendly atvs too. Michigan is dying out for recreation, the fishing is terrible, the hunt is minimal except for deer, and the laws governing the bikes and quads are too strict. I lived up in Gladwin county and pretty much it's not friendly to any offroaders anymore.
