Love it or hate it, social media is here to stay. In the ATV industry, it can serve a surprisingly useful service:

If you use Facebook you should have been notified in April that you were one of the 87 million members whose information was exposed, in the worst year ever for data breaches. In the U.S. there were more personal records stolen in 2018 than there are people in the country, so there's most likely something out there on everyone. There are a few good reasons to use Facebook, but last year there were 87 million reasons not to.

FB can have all my personal info they can obtain from my FB account.
Like my junk mail address, no phone number, fake birth date and anything else they want.

I was born on 1-1-1901 Sometimes I accidentally use the wrong date, like when I signed up here and now I can't change it.

Nope. And I'll tell you why.

There's a small village in the Caucasus Mountains of Georgia near the Russian border where people eat a type of yogurt called matsoni every day. They've been eating it day after day for generations, much longer than anyone can remember, and they claim it makes you live longer. One day there was a man in the village who was 121 years old when he died. His father said, "I told him he wouldn't live long if he didn't eat his yogurt!"

I can't stand the stuff, so I know I'm going to die young too.

We try to imagine brand name as little more than a sticker on our machine but it turns out the disappearance of one brand has not sat well with the off-road community. So they did something about it:

Believe it or not half of that was true, but I'm not saying which half.


Also, I think Textron made a really stupid move when they decided to quit using the Arctic Cat name. It's good to see that with proper motivation they came to their senses. Arctic Cat has been a well known name in off-road vehicles for decades. Why throw that away?

Why do you think corporations pay big bucks for brand names? Textron lost sales big time when they took over A/C. To many bad experiences with Textron and the Bad Boy Buggy name. They will do much better bringing back A/C name as it was associated with quality and durability. Smart move!
