    Hi chaps,

    I have been out of the off roading scene for some years, having started with a gaylander, moving up to a disco 300 tdi and arguably downgrading to a Disco 2 TD5.

    I want to get back into the off road/green lane scene when/if this lockdown ever ends, but problem is I don't have the space for another landy or similar unfortunately. I considered perhaps getting a road legal UTV (if there is such a thing) just to get me out into the countryside, exploring green lanes etc.

    Appreciate this is perhaps not the best forum for UTV talk but does anyone have any suggestions or other possible ideas? Also considered a quad but they seem too dangerous for my liking and dirt bikes just don't do it for me.

    Cheers

    Get one of those green things the farmers use. They seem to go anywhere

    Farmer use the mules.
    Now unsure how legal they are for normal use.
    Look for the quad cart type things

    Thats a gator, can be road legal. Ive used mules and Kubota, all road legal. Good fun and much better accross a muddy field than a fender. But even less creature comforts like a door. And easily nicked, the last one i used got pinched.

    Also not ideally suited to long distance drives to get to the lanes...

    Hovercraft serve two purposes ideal for not harming worms and the police will have endless fun.
