If they were truly interested in doing good things for the enviroment as they claim then they coulf find better ways to do it.
And honestly...if we had an offroad company throwing money at us...do you really think any of it would be spent on supporting hikers in the woods? Heck no...it would all be dumped back into efforts to support motorized recreation...which would then ultimately support sales for the company donating the money.
Think about it.
