Yes it sure was and is a pristine wilderness that needed to be preserved oh and shove your fuckin discovery TAX sticker-placard up your environmental terrorist ass.
I agree with you but have moved on. Place is dead. Ride elsewhere. You can complain, write letters, do trail work, vote, give money to NMA, etc. etc. - Reiter is dead. Very sickening as it has turned us into helpless, controlled fools who abide by the DNR's creed of Do Not Ride.
The only hope is that the hikers turn to the new opportunity of being eternally stoned and DE-motivated to recreate. Keep their interests urban instead such that they lose concern for a dirt bike in the woods.
