    Due to overwhelming evidence pointing out a monumental mistake on my part, this video has been removed.

    Signage - when I saw the open gate, which was usually closed, I went down the trail. Immediately I saw a Snoqualmie NF sign after passing the gate. In all honestly, there were other signs, but after seeing the SNF sign I just kept riding.

    Several lessons learned in this post. One thing is for sure, this crowd is great at pointing out failures, which while humbling, in many cases lead to learning important lessons - like to avoid that land.

    I'm not ready to condemn the OP just yet. Was there signage telling you to stay out? Was there signage telling you the gate may be locked at any time? Was there any form of gate or no trespassing signage on your route out? Splashing through puddles isn't a crime in itself. The OP wasn't ripping through freshly planted areas and appeared to be on well traveled roads for the most part. I am not familiar with that area but if it isn't gated or at least signed on all major roads into or out of the area....looked like minor glitch in the program. :ear

    Nice trespassing video, why did you have your bike loaded down with stuff if it was just a afternoon ride?

    Any videos of you robbing a liquor store or shooting old ladies in the park while riding your bike? :lol3


    serious though, nice bike.

    Yeah, who cares about property lines and fences, gates, doors etc. I am sure you would not mind someone randomly showing up at your house riding around in your yard then going in your front door and having lunch in your kitchen then taking a nap with your wife/boyfriend.

    I'm sure those who would find people on their property would also say "no big deal".

    Who cares, right?
