RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I am an OVH rider, Hunter, Hiker, tried horse back riding too. I praticpate in Trail repairs and managment Also pay my dues to ride. I see what we do to the enviroment and understand the impact on those that hurn and make new trails out there. It feels that all of you special intrest enviomental groups bunch each an every one of us together, giving us all bad names us that keep and try to help keep us in the ever shrinking bounds we all are given to ride.
The noise i agree has beeen getting horrific where it hurts to listen though my helmet its rediculas. I would like to point out that stock exhast mufflers are Well under the current db limmets. Its not what most of you say the 'manufactures' doing. Actually its the owners of the machines them selves that 1 modded them for other uses like racing of some kind, or 2 Poor upkeep. (Yes upkeep for those of you that are not mechanicaly inlcined) The muffler Packing litterly burns away with use. And need being replaced. Most people dont know this and buy an after market one and dose no reseach into what the mufflers specs are.
Now, I have Yet to see any one take the time from the you green people into why those people ride where the they do. Or in the fact to take the effort to think for the moment the more you close down of the legal area to ride or keep us from expanding an area that they wont follow the laws or rules becasue in the days end you left us with nothing to do and no where to go. Now I ask you all to think on this side if you were told you cant Hike, Bird watch, Camp, Or have the area where you go Cut in Half or more. What Would you do? Use some common sence and go in depth and understand before you all pull out the pitch forks and torches. This is why neather side get along or in fact have any respect for one an other.
In my own oppinion if you see fit to cut back my Freedoms as OHV rider, one that actually keeps inside the bounds you all close in on me and the others. All other areas should also be limited, My freedoms have been limited so shall yours. I my self will dread the day that comes to be. So Do us and your selves a favor and use common sence. Quit pointing the finger in a general group and work out those that ruin the fun at our parks of recreation.
