Do you have all the UTV accessories you need for the upcoming autumn rallies and competitions? The weather’s cooling down, which means UTV festivals are ramping up around the country. The right accessories (like roll bars) are a requirement for some of these events, but beyond that, they can make you more competitive. A cushier seat, a full windshield versus a half-tilt or an upgraded roll bar will provide more comfort and safety. Accessories give UTV riders peace of mind, allowing them to take on more calculated challenges — and perhaps win the gold.
Luckily, you still have plenty of time to outfit your UTV with all the bells and whistles before the next big competition. Need some ideas? Following is a list of some of the best upcoming rallies around that are still welcoming registration. But act fast — these open spots won’t last forever!
This event is one of the muddiest in the country, and one of the oldest in the Rocky Mountain area — 2015 celebrates its 20th anniversary. The jamboree includes guided rides along the Gooseberry and Paiute trails, plenty of prizes and elaborate dinners.
As one of the most impressive rallies in the world, Baja is bringing back the adrenaline rush.
