Street Legal OHVs Gain Access into AZ Wildlife Refuge
HQ wants to salute the efforts of the AMA and BRC for their work to gain access for street-legal motorcycles and ATVs into the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge.
Historically, the refuge has banned the use of street legal motorcycles and ATVs on a number of its roads that are open for 4x4 use. Thanks to a collaborative effort by my good friends, Nick Haris, and, Brian Hawthorne, they persuaded the unit manager that the area’s management plan did allow for the use of street legal motorcycles and ATVs on several of its roads.

In this day and age of closures, it is nice to focus on something positive. Kudos again to Nick and Brian on this effort, and to the unit’s manager for being willing to review the issue and then make a decision.
