Actually, (fu)kwads are OK, as long as they are kept in driveways, farms, lawns, etc., and kept out of the woods.

I really dislike them.

Go to Hatfield-McCoy on a 2 wheeler and you will, too.

Question When you say DS,

My V with Tourances probably wouldn't cut it would it? The Wife and I are driving back on Sat, she may be tired of me by then, we'll see.

We use them for hunting and working. My son rides on some trails in the neighborhood that are only used by quads.

No way I'd ride the Hat/Mc trail system on a 2 wheeler. Irresponsible quad riders would take you out in a heartbeat... just like the Jeeps and trucks did back in the early 80's.

Come to think of it... that's what the motorcycles did to those of us who rode horses on trails in the late 60's and early 70's.

It's a vicious cycle.


Now, it's time for me to change gears and get to church.

I'm quad neutral, don't hate them and don't own one.

If your a quad hater would one of these be acceptable? No, it's not me and I didn't take the picture either.

Cool pic, and I don't see why there would be any objection to what looks like a dirt bike with a side car. Good to hear from you here Masterlink, and perhaps you can join us sometime for our 'Richmond Commuter tag game. It's loads of fun and I've seen so many new places to ride in just the few months I've been on the site! Plus we have some get-togethers for good company, bike chatting and imbibing. Great bunch of guys here!

Plenty of dirt riders around here too. If you look back a few posts some guys were trying to setup a date for a DS/dirt ride. And Pete (pplassm) loves dirt bikes, does some races, and live in New Kent. Like I said, lots of great guys with many varied interests.

4 Or 2?

I started riding bikes on hard roads in 1972, but never liked the feel since the day I got my first bike, on the way home from the dealers, sitting at a light, the guy that pulled up next to me on a Honda 750 got rear ended RIGHT NEXT TO ME, dragged 100 feet down the road and died in front of me...(didn't know him... just out on the same road...)....
I digress....... stuck to dirt on my Yammi 360 enduro for a long time, and only hit roads for necessity getting to and from work and places I rode in the dirt till I got my Z in 1978.
I had a small group of pals that would go up to Pa., Allegheny nat For. near Kinzua/Kane/Redbridge/Westline area, and began riding on what became The Meade Run bike trail, we basically cut that mega path...no hard roads, very few dirt roads, just cross country on enduros and full blown MX'rs.
We did this till 1980 when 3 wheelers became obnoxiously present and ruined the trail system, also causing lots of this area to become off limits to any bikes. Afew years later around the early 80's when we began to return there more areas were shut off for access because the Kwuds moved in, totally Quadruppling the width of the trails which really were only single track in the beginning, and caused so much damage to the trail system they shut off 80% of it. They also brought the heat down on us clandestine 2 wheelers, and everywhere we went on a fire rooad, we got stopped for Forrestry service bike inspections.... license, lights, plates, registrations, and even operational saftey checks.... really got sucky geting hit up like that 4 or five time A DAY.... What used to be 3 days of fun for us in the mountains, covering 150 miles off road, never seeing a soul or riding the same spot during the weekend became like doing laps in your front yard... all due to the K-Wad abuse of the system..
Now I have them running up and down my road (private) all wasted on beers, kicking up dust back and forth, no baffles, shorts and tee shirts...helmet, fugggetaboutit.... and the cops won't enforce any law because it's a private road....and they were'nt riding a licensable vehical, therefore no moving violation...yet they told me I could get a ticket, and even go to JAIL if I did that in my truck....F-ME!
Then I go hunting and all the lazy bastiches that never learned that walking in the woods with a bow or black powder rifle is called hunting, come thumping thru 5 times a day, doing laps with their camo, a weeks supply of crap, and a shotgun perched on the bars and park under my treestand.... I wait till they get all theri crap off the K-Wad before I yell "Hey, F-Wad.... you blowing my hunt....", so they ride 100 feet away, and park, and go walking for 20 minutes before repeating the cycle....
I tell ya, I been getting pretty good hitting them tires with the SILENT arrow from a tree stand at 65 yards before exiting the area....after retrieving the evidence....yah push that sucka outta the woods with 2 flat tires....
I have found the same piece o crap sitting a week later, still had 2 flats, because the knob had to walk out of the woods a half mile (awwwwwwww) and decided that they didn't want to return the same day because it was "too far to walk with the heavy patch kit"...bwaaaa hawwwww.
Walked by the a-hole when he was fixing it on my stalk that weekend, and when I asked him what happened, and he sarted ranting, i just told him "well, I guess you pissed somebody off.... back in here, you're lucky they just shot your tire...." "by the way, you DO know this 500 acres is PRIVATE property dontcha?".....sumpin' bout the .445 Supermag on my side, and the Scoped .50 Cal I was carrying that day might have made the reason I didn't see him in there again....
"So many interlopers, so little time, and so few arrows..."

oh, and they are one of the major reasons Aylett Kwashed the proposed MX and bike track that would have given a place for people to ride out here in K/W... cause the folks in the area were basing opinions on the noise, and riding habits on the A-Holes living in the area currently ruining it with their Quads.... not the dual sport riders....

naw, gotta get a haircut, and shop...drat

when he re-did the directions, it put it totally in the opposite direction of where I was looking yesterday... the clues about (Jackson's rd., and then the Tim Taylor's dead neighbor's ROAD... verbatum..) had you going all the way down and heading to Floyd.... now it's east outta Pilot, and I don't have time to figger it out again.... was gonna try this a.m., but luckily looked, and hung out here, and saw the Re-do. That makes it a non-ride.
and thank you, I do resemble that comment.... loquacious
makes for gooder times at the bar... or with friends....
sure beats "hunh?", "Duh, I dunno.." or better yet, "Get'r Done...."

maybe after my haircut and S-H-O-P-P-I-N-G I'll feel better.....
Tag on...
