We don't actually have an atv club per say here but we have forums that are base in this area and we keep informed thru them. It would be nice if we had a "club" in this area so we could perhaps get more involve with the local communities and the state which are doing real good over here by creating more trails for us to ride compare to NJ where they want your money but there's no legal place to ride.
I used to belong to a club in NY since I ride there once or twice a year and they are very informative and are involve with the state and local communities getting more trails approve.
I'm a member of the local ATV club, the only thing I don't like is the faces of other member's when they see the 700XX. There 99% 4X4 Atv's and they don't like seeing our little racer quads as they call it. I just like going riding and pissing them off, I don't do anything dramatic to them, I just give a good throttle burp once in s while to let them know I'm there!!!! And with the Barker exhaust they hear me really easy.
I am a member of 3 local atv clubs. The most active for trail riding is a Yahoo group of family atv riders centered in the Yuba City & Marysville, CA area. In fact, I was riding with some of the members yesterday... we had 6 quads and 2 dirt bikes. To top that off, 2 of the quads were 700xx's... mine and Slimedog's... Name sound familiar? Slimedog is also a member here. A local atv club is a good way to organize rides and meet other people to ride with.
I am a member of two forums..here and the atvzone and I have to say if your friendly you can meet alot of people! We all rode a lot last year together. There are 27 riders I email, pm or text to keep them informed of rides. We all have not meet but 19 of us (was to many) ended last season together and it was a good time! Not to mention nash04 who is as bad as scuzz on so many forums pimps me out and I get some randoms from atvrider...lol hno:
So my suggestion is don't look for a club...do it yourself...take the extra step and post your ride in the ride section of the forums your on, you'd be surprised how many people you'll end up meeting just by stepping outside your silent box and waiting for someone to invite you!!!
The reason for joining a club goes beyond just meeting new people to ride with. The club I am planning on joining also has a good relation with the BLM and are very active in establishing new trail systems here in Nevada as well as Utah and Arizona. Forums are good for posting info and I do belong to several myself. The local off road and atv clubs out here are the ones who keep the trail systems clean and maintain them on a regular basis which keeps the BLM happy and keeps the trails open to the public. We are fortunate out here in the west with a lot of free riding areas, but there is work to be done to keep it that way.
