sorry Dave, I really don't want to be the guy that rains on your parade, but do you really need a new thread everytime you take your toys out?

Why not have one trials thread, one moto thread, one kite thread, and I'll have my one "I'm at work" thread.

Its "trials" riding, not "trails" riding. Yeah … while it looks cool, the reason I go into the woods it to avoid motorized vehicles. Urban trials riding would be way cooler, IMHO, but probably not legal in a lot of jurisdictions.

Motorized users have a right to the BC in BC and self propelled users should also not have to put up with motorheads unless of course they want to, so you need a process to spell out land use and then ticket the people who ignore the rules

A trials bike is at least much less intrusive than a moto X bike

is dave sponsored by a company that makes trials bikes?

Hey Dave…regarding that last statement… Zip it dude, no publicity, nada. It's the way it is up there because those in the know keep it on the down low. Thanks in advance.

Mud Lakes-Yes….non-motorized in the spruce lake park. lower foot print than mountain bikes…on the terrain…2 psi in a flat squared tire over sliding knobs on a mtb…many mtb's don't want to believe but those of us who do both see it.

Non motorized BC users of an area do not want to hear the exhaust note of a trials bike however muted it might be or see the tracks or garbage that gets left or be around motorized BC users which motorized users just can't seem to grasp, you may even be right on the footprint but non-motorized is non-motorized … thems the rules

We weren't poaching in the area where those pics were taken.

Motos are allowed up there as well, but good luck with that.
