The best leaders always lead by example. As a responsible and forward-thinking company in the powersports industry, Yamaha is leading the way for both off-highway enthusiasts and outdoorsmen. The manufacturer not only produces the most technologically advanced and durable ATVs and Side-by-Side (SxS) vehicles, it strongly supports conservation and responsible riding efforts across the country. For example, the Yamaha OHV Access Initiative is a nationwide, proactive grassroots program supported by Yamaha dealers and customers that promotes safe, responsible riding and sustainable open riding areas. Through the OHV Access Initiative, Yamaha Motor Corp., USA, provides financial support to deserving organizations by way of its GRANT (Guaranteeing Responsible Access to our Nation's Trails) program. Recent efforts in this program included bridge-construction and trail-sign enhancement projects in Oregon and Pennsylvania, as well as trail-improvement and tree-planting projects in California. In just two years, the program has put more than $1.5 million directly back into the field, and that's not including Yamaha's support of conservation groups like DU, NWTF, SCI and National Hunting and Fishing Day.
