wonderful year from our first meeting Sept 9th 1999.
ATV enthusiasts came together on that date to form an organization and decided
it was high time we ATV riders got organized to fight for our right to ride in

We gathered over 1000 signatures on petitions of people for legal riding areas
in New Jerseys state forests.
We have contacted numerous local and state politicians and governmental agencies
concerning ATV and dirt-bike riding in New Jersey.
We have had articles printed in newspapers about our group and our concerns.

We assisted area Motorcycle clubs and promoters in putting on public events.
We had a great year and next year looks to be even better, many more people are
already looking into joining the club. We are getting more involved with the

proud to announce a major manufacturer has taken the time to come out to see us, (South Jersey ATV Association inc.) Kawasaki took the time to send representatives all the way from California to New Jersey to discuss the possibilities of Kawasaki coming up with a support type program to assist clubs like ours in opening legal riding areas. It is great to see a major manufacturer getting
involved. They also brought out their all new 650 prairie and gave us a sneak preview.
Looks like a great machine. You can check it out by going to Kawasaki's website

|FACT: There is no State Trail System nor state funding program for public
off-highway recreational vehicle trails in The State of New Jersey. With
your help, we want to change this situation.|
The information below was taken right from the NJ DMV it states how many ATV
users paid to register their ATVs in 1998 and how much money the state of New
Jersey got from registration fees in 1998
ATV Resident 1,961 @ $19,610
ATV Non-Resident 9 @ $108
and yet the state still does not provide any legal riding areas for us, where
does these funds go?
