Yamaha is very proactive in promoting safe and responsible OHV (off-highway vehicle) use. This not only means they are trying to keep guys like me from having those “watch this” moments, but also taking care of those beautiful places we all enjoy. A Yamaha Thunder Pack to the first correct answer that doesn’t come from a TOC Finalist. (Let’s spread the swag around.)
Scenario: You are 15 miles into an OHV trail, and you come to a creek crossing. The water is below your foot pegs and there is very little current. It is the designated crossing area for the trail and the streambed looks solid. Your Grizzly 550 is a 4x4, so you are sure it can handle the stream.
Question: Several reasons why you don’t go through the creek with the throttle pegged and the mullet flyin’ jump out at ya. The first being not wanting your melon cracked open by impact. The other two reasons are what I’m looking for: one environmental and the other personal safety.
