HONDA SIGNS OHV AGREEMENT WITH U.S. FOREST SERVICE

 SAN BERNARDINO, Calif., Feb. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- American Honda Motor Company Inc. and the San Bernardino National Forest announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to work together to design and implement a world-class off-highway vehicle (OHV) program that will mutually benefit the forest, its visitors and the community in accordance with the current Forest Plan.
 "We are honored to take part in this MOU with the San Bernardino National Forest. We are confident that we can achieve great things together and look forward to a long working partnership," stated Silvio Carrara, American Honda Motorcycle Division's vice president. "As a socially responsible corporation, we strive to promote customer satisfaction, safety in the use of our products, and respect for the environment," Carrara added.
 The San Bernardino National Forest contains more than 670,000 acres and is located in San Bernardino and Riverside counties, approximately 60 miles east of Los Angeles and 100 miles north of San Diego on land that covers the mountain ranges between agricultural and industrial valleys and desert plateaus. Currently, there are more than 250 miles of OHV roads and trails on the forest with plans to develop more trails as approved in the current Forest Plan.
 "I commend American Honda for its leadership, corporate responsibility and spirit of cooperation. Together we will work to develop a world model for responsible OHV use in combination with other uses of public lands," said Forest Supervisor Gene Zimmerman. "As a result of our new partnership, OHV riders will have a greater opportunity to enjoy quality trails while helping us to protect sensitive vegetation and wetlands," Zimmerman added.
 Representatives from American Honda Motor Co. Inc., the forest and the Sierra Club will participate in the strategic planning phase of the agreement scheduled to begin on Feb. 4.
