UTV enthusiasts from Idaho,
Washington, California, Nevada, Canada
and Oregon met at the Winchester Bay,
Oregon, dunes to participate in the UTV
Vendor row is a great place to check
out new products from different aftermarket UTV parts and manufacturers.
Throughout the event you could take
off into the sand dunes for some great
riding without a guide.
There was a show & shine competition
for the coolest machines at the event.
This rad UTV by Muzzys took third
over some of the huge Winchester
Bay summer dune faces.
Browsing the product-packed ven-
dors row was the perfect change
of pace for some Invasion-goers.
Vendors included performance prod-
uct companies like Muzzys (who con-
ducted an informative “Performance
Tips” seminar), UTV Tech, Rugged
Radios, Modquad, Whipit Light Rods
and Blind Beagle, as well as food
vendors. A show-and-shine was one
of the highlights on Saturday with
dozens of customized UTVs in the
lineup for people to check out. Show-
and-shine winners received beautiful
trophies provided by Modquad.
The final day of the UTV Invasion
was topped off with a big raffle to
raise funds for the Save the Riders
Dunes efforts to protect riding rights
on public lands and to keep the
Oregon Dunes National Recreation
Area riding areas open to all. Over
75 items were raffled off, including
a winch system donated by Warn
Industries, a complete set of UTV tires
and wheels contributed by Pro Armor
and Method Wheels, a full set of custom UTV seats from PRP Seats, as well
as hats and T-shirts.
