I think that the locals would be on you fairly quick for tearing up their back country.... Mind you, I could be wrong. whowardb - I'm over on the big Island in Chemainus. I'm hoping we get a chance to meet up and enjoy a ride together. No mud in my riding style either but logging roads/twisty roads are definitely my preferred riding surfaces. I'm heading away for a few weeks, but hopefully the riding will be back on in July.
