2019 is THE year for Heavy Duty trucks! All 4 of the big Heavy Duty truck manufacturers have released all-new or revised trucks for this year. In other words, there is no shortage of choices coming to your local dealership… Which one is best for you??
The ultimate time to buy just about anything is here and now! In case you have been living under a rock, we’ll tell you that the two best buying days of the year are in the next 7 days: Black Friday (11/29/19 this year) and Cyber Monday (12/2/19 this year). Not only can you expect extreme deals on sites like Amazon, plus crazy deals at nearly all of the brick-and-mortar stores in North America, but you can also find deals at your local powersports dealerships.
It’s time for something new! We have been toying with the idea of how to put together a weekly series showing you all the little things that make ATVs and UTVs unique from one another. We wanted it to not only be informational, but it our job to help you make informed buying decisions when you go out and purchase an expensive ATV or UTV.
If you own a BRP vehicle, such as a Can-Am Maverick or Defender, then you are probably aware of the fact that BRP makes their own oils and lubricants. These XPS items are specifically developed by BRP’s engineers to be used in your Can-Am vehicles, and they are the best items to keep your off-road vehicle running in tip-top shape.
Can you imagine racing the toughest, 2-week long desert race in the world on an ATV or in a UTV?! Count us in… Dakar is that extreme race, and it takes place every year in January. So, to start getting you excited for what is to come this January, Can-Am is ready to hit the nail on the head again and put the Maverick X3 back on top. Here is a bit of a preview of what is to come from the brand to promote their 2020 Dakar efforts...
Newsflash – the off-road manufacturers making your favorite ATVs and SXS vehicles are held to strict, industry-wide standards that dictate how tough a machine has to be, how it needs to handle in particular tests, and how safe it should be coming out of the factory. It’s significant news when there is a new CEO for the governing body that determines all of these standards and safety tests. How will this affect ATVs and SXS vehicles in the future?
It's a bigger phenomenon in the mountain biking industry, but trail maintenance, upkeep, and creation are all things that need to be focused on in the ATV and UTV industry. There are so many different riding areas in North America, and many of them don't have proper trail maintenance associated with their management plan. Yamaha is at the forefront of all of these Public Lands initiatives with their Outdoor Access Initiative.

It is safe to say that places to ride our ATVs and side-by-sides is pretty important in the scheme of the sport of off-roading. Polaris knows this, and continues to fund ATV and off-road organizations across the U.S. providing safe and responsible places to ride through its T.R.A.I.L.S grant program. In September alone the T.R.A.I.L.S program awarded $5,000-$10,000 grants
It takes time to really take in all the details of a new ATV or side-by-side once it is announced. Seeing the machine in person, sitting in it, photographing it, and finally driving it allows us the time to digest the details and really get to know it. Then, letting the details dance around in our heads helps us draw conclusions about what makes the ATV or side-by-side great or.... not so great. Having
Have you ever thought about strapping yourself to the back for a bull or horse and see how long you can hang on without getting thrown off? Yeah, we have thought about it also, but... it would not end well for us or you! There are professionals for that, so let's leave that to them. If you want to experience a "good time" then go to a Professional Bull Riders show. We have

Whenever we see these pictures of snow being "shredded" on an ATV or side-by-side it really does make us warm and fuzzy inside. It just does! We want to do this SO BAD!!! What is not to love about fresh power and being aboard an ATV or side-by-side tearing it up and making new trails! Then there are those who despite the snow have to work or get the job done no matter what, and tracks make

This annual Glamis gathering seems to be one for the record books in many ways. There are countless people who attend, most with UTV’s, of course.

We just got back from riding the new 2020 Kawasaki Teryx KRX 1000, and what a whirlwind trip that turned out to be! I wound up driving the Teryx KRX 1000 for about 3 hours on a closed course with different obstacles to tackle. In retrospect this was a learning experience that left me with more questions than answers because of the limited time we had aboard the Teryx KRX 1000, but it did help me form some initial impressions

You can expect to get the scoop on Monday when it is revealed,
We just got back from quite the ride in south Texas where we drove all the new 2020 Defender models including the Defender Pro, Defender 6x6, and the Defender Limited. All of these new 2020 Defender models proved to have some cool new features such as AC (yes you read that right), 6-foot cargo beds, pass-through under-bed storage, more power, power windows, and, most importantly, SIX WHEELS. We put
Let's say that you have a shinny Can-Am Maverick X3, and, for the sake of this tale, let's say you want to be surrounded by music as you rip around in your Can-Am Maverick X3. You are in luck then because Can-Am and Roksford Fosgate, who makes audio systems, have teamed up to build a audio roof for your Maverick X3. Rocksford Fosgate is a premium brand, and this audio roof is no joke either.
