I do feel there is a battle brewing. What are everyone’s thoughts about trail closures or about the government telling us what size machine we can buy or about self-governance? I live in a part of the country where the BLM or Forest Service is constantly closing trails or limiting them to narrow widths, which pushes more SxSs onto main thoroughfares and creates other consequences.
Just this past weekend on our local Facebook forum, we had several postings of SXS owners disregarding posted trail access, riding in protected marsh areas, or driving around/through fences to get access to closed areas. None of that bodes will for the rest of us who do our best to follow the rules and preserve our access.
What are your thoughts?
