Another thing which people don't seem to take into consideration is the damage done when riding off the trail on a motorbike or a quad. Damage to the vegetation can take literally decades to repair itself in that climate. Someone might think that they're 're an ADV god for making it further than anyone else on a bike, but the damage you do to the landscape in the process is more than anyone with that attitude will understand. Was it ten, fifteen years ago that a group of Landover enthusiasts tried to see how far they could get? The ruts they left in the wilderness when leaving the trail to navigate around obstacles are still plainly visible today. I fully support the adventure aspect of it, but you have to be respectful of where you are and what you are doing.
