    A few years ago, a bunch of atv guys filmed themselves tearing up a swampy area in a Mass State forest and then posted it online. I don't recall whether they were fined or whatnot,,, but the greenies and the DEP used the video as evidence in helping to get almost all trails closed to motorized vehicles in Mass.

    This was a few years ago so details are slim. But he had taken random video on the ride. But on the Front Royal side there are a few stretches that you can wick it up pretty good. Not affraid to admit...in the "sportbike" days of my youth, I was definitely part of the problem on that particular stretch of road. Never went down myself but helped many others pick themselves and bike parts off that stretch of road. Then came the lower speed limits, increased enforcement and for the trifecta.....the rumble strips at corner entries. :cry

    Heck, if you ride a dirt bike in NY not on a MX course or in your yard, you are probably breaking the law...

    There is no legal trail riding in NY. None. CT has, what, 3 places? NY worse than CT, it's amazing, and bullshit.

    This was in Pennsylvania not New York. It was because he drove around a gate on a fire road.
