ATV Television -Anti-UTV stand


Recommended Posts

I've had it, this guy has to be stopped.

In a simply astounding blog post, ATV Television host Doug Meyer has come out swinging in an attempt to force UTVs off of the Paiute ATV Trail system.

Read it here:


In effect he says UTVs are ruining the trail and they must be banned before the trail system is destroyed.

He goes so far as to say that the damage UTVs are causing in Moab and Imperial Dunes and to the Paiute will result in them being shut down.

He defines UTVs as "incredibly high-speed vehicles that have in turn increased both personal injuries and ecological damage multifold".

His parting shot is a clear indication that he thinks UTV owners are simply a bunch of speed freaks ruining the scenery of the Paiute Trail.

"All this is said not because of my preference for ATVs over UTVs, but rather my preference for scenic trails for exploration over trails used for high-speed entertainment." -Doug Meyer

This isn't just a one time blog post, he has taken this argument to the US Forrest Service that manages the Paiute Trail.

He has been a vocal opponent of the UTV Jamboree held each year on the Paiute (utvjam.com), last year urging the city of Marysvale to ban the event.

I can tell you first hand UTVs are not creating a problem on this trail system, Doug just hates UTVs.

The amazing thing here is that this guy makes a living largely from UTVs. One look at all of his latest video you see its all about UTVs. I see him wheeling around in UTVs he has been given for FREE all the time.

I think its time Polaris, Yamaha, Kawasaki and the rest of the manufacturers stop giving this guy free product to use in his business.

We have enough problems with environmentalists trying to shut us down, we don't need the media that pretends to represent us doing it.

I think its time we let him know we don't appreciate the way he is dogging us.

Please send emails to the media contacts and tell them to stop supporting a guy who doesn't support this sport.

This type of guy started the War on the Off-Roaders in California. Was sucessful and are now moving on to the rest of the Western & Southwester States. We are having a similar type of battles in AZ. They can be slowed but are tough to stop. This is one of the reasons I am so close to the USA/Mexico border as I feel in my life-time that will be my primary off-roading location as everything else will be controlled like California. VERY VERY SAD!!!!

Another problem is we get very little support or help from the mid-west & east as they do not have the open areas we do in the West. They are already controlled in private off-road parks & small public controlled areas. The West is on its own to slow these people.

      I have a Coleman Outfitter 550 purchased in January 2022 that runs and operates pretty well.  65 hours on it so far.   It is a work vehicle for my 10 hilly acres with two 1 acre woods and 5 acres of "lawn".  The rest is under a lake. 
      My parking brake does not seem to have any grip.  It worked when new but after a month or so, it is just almost useless.     I press the parking brake pedal hard until it stops. Still, it won't hold even on slight inclines.   I don't see the caliper move as I press the brake pedal down.  There seems to be plenty of pad left on it and the rotor is shiny as if it is rubbing a little when applied, but not enough to stop it from rolling. 
      Any thoughts on possible causes?
