ATVs ... What do YOU think?

I'm going to squeeze in a shameless, self-serving research trick here. I'm writing a story on ATV use, impact on habitat, etc. (not for Field & Stream). I want to know what the Fly Talk readership thinks when I say "ATV." Can't live without yours? Think they're the lazy person's nature chariot? Scarring up the landscape? Getting more people hooked on the outdoors in a good way? Or somewhere in between? Please tell me. I promise not to quote you directly.
