The Q2 funding cycle of the Yamaha OHV Access Initiative included a continuing GRANT supporting the Off Road Business Association (ORBA). Yamaha’s support will assist ORBA in its ongoing efforts to secure OHV access rights in Johnson Valley as well as U.S. National Forest Service properties throughout California. Other 2013 Q2 Yamaha GRANT recipients include:

  • Itasca County Land Department, Minn.
  • Racers Under The Son, Ore.
  • Rock Run Recreation, Pa.
  • Valley ATV Riders, Maine

“The Johnson Valley OHV Area is the largest of its kind in the country, and Yamaha strongly supports ORBA’s work with the disparate interests to ensure OHV enthusiasts can continue to enjoy this remarkable riding opportunity,” said Steve Nessl, Yamaha ATV and SxS marketing manager. “ORBA’s effort to protect OHV access is a terrific example of the Yamaha OHV Access Initiative in action, and we encourage other OHV communities to find the opportunities in their areas and consider applying for a GRANT.”
