The Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative (OAI) is dedicated to those who work and play outdoors including, but not limited to, those who rely on off-highway vehicles (OHVs) to ride, camp, hunt, fish or farm.

Supporting outdoor enthusiasts, the Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative’s mission is to provide practical support for efforts promoting safe, responsible use of OHVs, educate the public on proper recreational land use and wildlife conservation practices, and protect appropriate and sustainable access to public lands.
