ROSEVILLE, CA (July 15, 2013) -- An off-road motorcycle club joined with a local motorcycle dealer and aftermarket clothing manufacturer to help fund efforts to promote and protect responsible OHV recreation in California and Western Nevada.  The Sierra Trail Dogs Motorcycle Club, the MPC KTM dealership, and Klim presented a $2,000 check to the BlueRibbon Coalition on July 11, 2012 in Roseville, California.

The club's president, Rowdy Hulse, presented the donation check to Don Amador, BRC's western representative at the KTM dealership, owned by Brad Teegarden.  Hulse stated, "Our club strongly supports the efforts of BRC to help keep trails open on the federal lands we like to ride on.  This donation is our way of being part of solution."

Brad Teegarden, owner of MCP KTM of Roseville, stated, "BRC has been working hard to help keep trails open in the places where our family and friends like to ride.  We want to see managed OHV recreation continue in areas such as the Pine Nuts in Nevada and Forest Service trails in the Tahoe and Eldorado National Forests."

‬Klim representative, Vince Leal, said, "I believe that industry and OHV-related businesses must team up with local clubs and OHV organizations such as BRC in order to protect trail-based recreation on BLM and Forest Service lands.  Those collective partnerships are critically important in the fight to maintain access at federal riding areas."

Don Amador, Western Representative for the BlueRibbon Coalition, said, "Club donations and support from local businesses are what helps keep the doors open at BRC.  I am also glad the group has selected to match this donation with Cycle Gear's Trail Fund program that does a one-to-one match up to $10,000 dollars on an annual basis."
