It does not encourage the use of trailers, as you well know.

It ALLOWS the use of trailers for those who are interested in true dirt riding and don't particularly care to ride for hours on asphalt with there knobbies. Once you start riding in the Pine Barrens and other serious dirt areas, you will understand.

Actually, I think you already do understand (as does Loph), since you just got a spectacular new Kendon. All the best of luck with your new trailer. Ready to do a Pine Barrens ride next weekend?

Baby dirt bikes have no place on highways, and knobbies have no place on asphalt for any length of time.

Dual Sport bikes are wonderful. The ones over 400 lbs., though, have their limitations. I don't think we want to limit this game to just the Big Boys.

I really didn't think about it but there is a possibily the tag may be underwater.

Its pretty close to the river and im not sure how high that river may rise.
I wonder if the bone will float away or will stay submereged under the leaves behind the poster tree.

Can someone go get this before it becomes the metro motor boat tag

1. Get a tag by posting a photo that reproduces the tag dropper's photo to his or her satisfaction. Must have your bike in the photo. Fully in the photo. Trailers allowed for the boring highway asphalt trips to the dirt roads. Yes, that means that if you pre-anticipated the ride, by knowing the tagger's habits, knowing the place, or having been there before, it counts if the dropper is satisfied. Docgonzo's Total Discretion (since Matchbox, Red, and STBob have failed to provide the leadership needed for this herding of cats.....)

The rules from page #1

If trailers are allowed I dont give a shit whats on to it go get the tag.

I was really thinking of dropping this tag with my Quad on the Island on Lake Hopachong

After all a water crossing is part of the game.

Kenny, the Durty Dabbers water crossing is one of the most infamous on the East Coast. One year, every third bike "drowned". They put extra boulders in the cloudy water just to amuse the crowds standing around watching.

With titanium knees, these boulders could do worse at speed then just drown the bike. I was very happy to have survived the crossing. Even if I "dabbed" my feet across a little!

Until you have done that crossing yourself, I'd think it would be prudent for you to stop making fun of this old man.....

Cut it out Kenny, before we end up with another "Abs From The 80's" series!

Dirt bikes are like Harley Davidsons and German Shepards. They like to ride in the back of pickup trucks (and trailers)!

Really, everyone should head over to Kenny's dirt thread. He's having much more fun then we are here! And there are more trailer pictures there for those who are obsessed!

So, YellowIron, is LittleIron gonna lend you her duck so you can resuscitate this game? Or are we gonna let it die because it doesn't satisfy the needs of the big trailie crowd?

A couple of the major detractors of this game just trailered their baby bikes down to Southern NJ to enjoy our woods. No reason why we can't get some life back into this game. Ride your knobbies on the street if you want. But let's not let this game die of pettiness......

YellowIron, the ball is in your court... I bet that GS of yours can actually do real dirt, not just graded roads.

Exactly. Too bad some people couldn't understand the humor involved in the game, that included dirt, riding, some kidding, some slight of hand, some internet fun, neat mascots, etc.

Was meant to be a Hunter S. Thompson GONZO kind of adventure. Unfortunately, there were those with concrete, rigid brains who couldn't understand that it was all meant to be fun, not a serious competition. There is enough stress and seriousness in life. We don't need such pressure in our computer games.....

Herding of cats is not easy. But just like the military, you need to lead, follow, or get out of the way. Unfortunately, it appears here some of our players couldn't do any of those three things.
