One thing they don't talk about is all the revenue made by snowmobile (atv in general) riders. That is such a big part of income for some places. What's going to happen if this goes through? I can guarantee there will be some businesses hurt bad enough that they will have to close. If people don't like it, they will go somewhere else to ride.

If this goes through, they better take the road tax off the gas for all atv's!! Then they can't bitch about funds going to the trail systems.

^very true. I can think a lot of small towns that are way out in the butt crack of nowhere, but the trail systems pass through so the bars definitely get full of riders in the winter months.

see what all these politicians cant seem to figure out, is that by screwing with snowmobilers they are really hurting local economys which can kill a whole states economy given enough tampering. Is it possible to do a class action lawsuit against all these "
parties" that regularly harass snowmobilers?

i hear you on the bike trail crap, why not tax the bikers then?!?! they use the road system and dont pay a stitch of money to do it!!! why not cut out off of the flowers and plants that are all along the blvrds and streets? this spring i saw city workers planting shrubs and laying mulch along 494 and i drive by the same spot and the grass is 5' tall and you cant even see the crap!!!! now that was a waste of $ plus u gotta pay someone to water the crap, maintain it, pay for a city truck and the fuel that goes in there.......
