In the state of Ohio, the rules and regulations of where you can ride your SXS are unclear, foggy at best. Many towns, cities, and towns make their own judgements that may differ from what the state itself deems appropriate, which adds to the confusion. All of this means that SXS vehicles are not permitted on many state-operated trails, so you may have to haul your Honda Talon to a neighboring state if you want to drive on public land.

However, all is not lost in Ohio. We were able to find some private ride locations in the state that are open to SXS vehicles. Just be sure to take a family member or friend along to enjoy the experience with you, because life is better on a Honda.

Situated on Wayne Township Road in Bloomingdale, Ohio, Renegade Ridge is another private riding location fit for UTVs like the Honda Talon 1000X-4 Fox Live Valve. Riding the almost 1500-acre property gives the SXS family almost 27 miles of wide trail adventure. The challenging hill climbs will test the mettle of any driver, but if you are fortunate to have a vehicle like the Honda Talon you have everything you need to make the cut. The I-4WD and Hill Start Assist in this new Talon will give any pilot the confidence to tackle the grade. If you should need to stop and adjust the machine on the hill, simply pressing the brake and the Hill Start Assist button simultaneously gives you a chance to move from brakes to gas without the machine moving backwards on its own.
