Yup..

They want the money from these people who come here to ride the trails, but they don't wanna let them spend more of their money at local businesses....

Lawmakers are idiots..

Absolutely Tommy! The problem is that most of them do not even go to the trail. They run up and down the road drinking and driving. It's a shame that you can't do that on the trails, but you can on our highways. It's amazing what the almighty dollar means to a few people in our area...and i do mean few. The majority of the people, even local atv riders, know that the trails haven't helped this area as much as those same few people want us to believe. My favorite is how the people that have kept the local businesses going for all these years now jack their prices up when spring rolls around but the out-of-state trailriders get a discount. Just like always....we do everything backwards. If they love the trails as much as the bigshots say, then they will haul them to the trails and keep coming back. But for some reason I think the majority would find some other place to go where they can party and drink out in the open and harass young girls while the community and law enforcement look the other way. I hear Man is worse than here...they might want to try there...lol!

I talked to some guys in here from out of state. I asked them what they liked best about the trails. They all said, "Because we can ride on the highways, we can't do that where we live, it's against the law, man we can do anything around here."

Are they allowed to ride over the whole town, or are there areas that are restricted?

That's one of the big problems...they have the run of the area, and it gets unsafe

How about adding the fact they need to pay for insurance. If they are allowed to drive on paved roads and not have insurance (at least liability)then why should ANYONE have to have insurance on their vehicles? They are using this as a mode of transportation just like I use my car as a mode of transportation...hmm...

When was a law passed that towns could allow dirt bikes to be on our roads? As of a year or so ago, towns could allow atvs to use their streets but not dirt bikes. Alot of people were coming here to Gilbert who had dirt bikes because the town of Man wouldn't allow them there and the police here in Gilbert were told to not enforce the laws. Now it seems they have free reign there too. Was there a law passed on this or did Man just start allowing people to break the law too so Gilbert didn't get all the dirt bike business?

Well i live at ben creek and i can sure tell you that i am not going to go buy a $2,000 dollar trailer to haul my UTV in when i can just ride to the trails. You people always find somthing to bitch about. My parents live in the town of gilbert and they arent bothered by the trailriders. So i think unless you live in town you shouldnt be bitching about it!!!!
Good, STAY on the trails, afterall that is where you are supposed to ride...another thing you should realize is that most of us, DO live in town, even though the location listed to the left may say other wise...also FYI even thouse who are making money from the trailriders (my family included) agree that it has gotten out of hand, and needs to be regulated more...now, go cry into your binky until you can have an adult conversation without cursing....

BeansWife..just curious. You're not going to pay $2000 for a trailer to haul your UTV from Ben Creek, so do you have insurance on your UTV to cover you in case of an accident. Because if you don't, then you are part of the problem. Seems to me if you don't want the expense that goes along with your UTV then you need to stay off the road.

Amen...it's ridiculous how many atvs pull out on people, nearly causing an accident and then pull off the road... after the fact they have scared the daylights out of someone and in case something would happen they can argue the cops that they were not on the road.

Piss N moan. Next month it will be about the coal trucks, then the month after that will be about local law enforcement, It's a vicious circle.
