About 30 off-highway vehicles set out from Storm Lake Honda on Saturday for a fun drive through the county.

The first event of its kind was made possible thanks to recent legislation allowing these vehicles on the road.

“It went very well!” said Jeff Schultz of Storm Lake Honda. “We are pleased with the turnout. The riders had a great time.”

Stops at Bob’s Sports Bar and Grille in Alta, Bobcats in Linn Grove, and After Hour Shop in Truesdale added to the fun.

The UTVs and ATVs must have a mirror, horn and power logging through the DNR.

The speed limit for them is 35 mph.

Because the riders took country roads and dirt roads, traffic was not affected, Schultz said. “Cars would just pass.”

Riders came from as far as Worthington, Minn.

Billie and Gailyn Nehring of Storm Lake are happy to take their 2017 Can-am to Park Rapids, Minnesota to ride trails. “We always see bear cubs,” says Gailyn. On the farm, they use it to move snow and occasionally push a round bale.
