Simi Valley, CA – March 26, 2012 – Fortunate enough to have one of the most extreme testing grounds in their backyard, GenRight Off-Road felt it was necessary to do their part to protect the Johnson Valley OHV area from the 29 Palms Marine Base Expansion. To help fund the cause GenRight Off-Road is donating $1500 to Savethehammers.org.
Currently the Marines are looking to expand the 29 Palms Marine base west into the Johnson Valley OHV area. The current marine base is three quarters the size of the state of Rhode Island and if the expansion takes place it will be equal to the state of Rhode Island. It’s also important to note that the Johnson Valley OHV area represents 50% of the area available for off-road recreation in California. Closing this area would leave less than 1% of California available to OHV access.
GenRight is proud of the amount of time they spend in Johnson Valley! Wether it’s testing new products on the famous “Hammers” trails, leading trail rides for groups of enthusiasts, or preparing for the King of the Hammers there is a good chance you can find the GenRight crew in Johnson Valley on any given weekend. “Anything we can do to help preserve the Johnson Valley OHV area for future generations is a step in the right direction and we are happy to support www.savethehammers.org.” Stated GenRight Off-Road owner Tony Pellegrino.
