I was down at Rocky lake a few days ago and all the camp sites were empty.
Didn't you already hate one of these?
Still with the BMW KTM 4life?
I've been gone for years and this is still a topic?
I find your intention to detail mildly disturbing.
2 years ago ...
The other day ...
Lets pay attention man.
Background: my riding CV is based around state owned OHV parks in California and Arizona. Pay a fee and use whatever square inch of the 100's of square miles of desert you want. Must have green or red sticker or street legal. Any vehicle.
FF to today: Maine is almost completely privately owned and off-road riding is limited to ATV Club maintained trails on private land that they have standing permission to ride on (correct me at any point). And most of those trails are not 2-wheel accessable. As is the Power Companies power line corridors. 4-wheels only.
My question is how to do LEGAL trail rides all over the place. I'm already street legal. I'm more than happen to get an ATV sticker. Do I have to join a club? Multiple clubs? Am I just limited to the few public areas like Lowell Preserve?
Welcome to Maine. What part of the state are you in?
I'm right in Portland, on the peninsula.
Just got here a year ago.
I be been riding quite a bit this summer qbut I'm a casualty of the photobucket debacle so haven't posted pics in a while.
Whats the cheapest and most userfriendly photo hosting site you popular kids are using?
Also.......anyone else notice all the new pavement being laid down? Went to Berlin NH couple three days and last weekend a three day trip Jackman, Greenville,......seemed like all the way up from the midcoast nice new roads.
I see that the Seacoast Trail Riders and NETRA are doing the Noble Woods Turkey Run on Oct 8.
Jockeystick - the turkey run might be worth the fee for you to get to know some of the area.
There are also trails in the areas around Standish, Denmark, Bridgton, Casco/Naples, Lovell/Waterford, Buckfield. Also a trail in Androscoggin Riverlands park in Turner.
Actually, quite a few of the ATV trails are motorcycle friendly in my experience, but you do have to figure out where to ride by finding people to ride with, or getting involved with an ATV club. Some areas are more strict than others about the ATV sticker (for bikes). The fee is not huge, so its easier to get it than not.
I was interested in the non-competitive class for the turkey run. However I do not have decent riding boots or chest protector anymore. In the path to get them however. In the meantime I'm really just trying to get practice in, for I haven't been riding in a few years and never off road on a bike as heavy as the XRL.
I'm meeting up with the Portland Dirt Riders in Oct. which #Muggins (inmate) is trying to grow and I wouldn't be shy of bringing up the possibility of forming a club legitimized in the eyes of the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation, and Forestry. But I am also interested in whatever the closest club is in the meantime.
so how are you goat fuckers doing ?!
Still looking for the goat.
I have a chest protector I'm not using anymore. Size large Thor impact rig. Let me know if you're interested. I also have some janky old boots in a size 11 you can have for free.
Good suggestions PepperDog. Be aware that NETRA gets permission to run most of the trails for Noble Woods turkey run only, and they're not legal the rest of the year. In general southern Maine is actually pretty good for dirt biking, it just takes a bit to find where the trails are. I find that's half the fun.
For those of you who might want to FEEL a little faster
And have some extra cash laying around...

Use it, like it.
Not sure what you're riding for a bike but just be street plated and buy the ATV sticker for your bike.
Then just ride whatever you want. If you end up someplace you shouldn't be, some one will tell you.. or they wont.
I've put 3800 miles on my 300XC-W this summer
