FYI: I’ve toned down this post to comply with ThumperTalk’s User agreement. This post is a strong reply to those who bashed AliveInMyOde post and meant to get the five pounds of gray matter on the shoulders working. I’m sure; AliveInMyOde paid a handsome tax when he bought his WR. He continues to pay taxes for gas, oil, gear, parts and the privilege to ride on public lands. Not to mention federal income taxes which are given to conservation groups to sue the forest service to close even more areas and create wilderness areas. There is no reason AliveInMyOde shouldn’t have the RIGHT not privilege to ride on public lands. To say what AliveInMyOde did was wrong, is to say our forefathers at the Boston Tea Party were wrong. Dirt bikes are not taxed at a lesser rate than other motor vehicles and we do pay an outrageous tax to access public lands in comparison to mountain bikes, camping, hiking, horseback riding and etc. In a growing number of cases these OHV taxes are used to close public lands to those who pay the tax “US”. In Colorado thousands of OVH tax dollars have been spent on several hundred 4” steel poles and miles of ¾” steel cable to “permanently” close thousands of acres. The fact one can father children doesn’t make a man. Principles make a man. I really like the loony, lefty, liberal, B.S. religious counter reply. Hard core liberals have been using the religion card for years on pro death-penalty political views. Really this thumpertalk member doesn’t ride DIRT? You’re a member of a far leftist group? Be honest no one likes a liar. Faith in god has nothing to do with riding a dirt bike on public lands while paying TAXES to maintain such lands and more to do with taxation without equal representation. My advice to you, AliveInMyOde, is to plea bargain the ticket. Show up for your hearing, if the DA doesn’t want to plea bargain your case, go before the judge plea guilty, sincerely apologize for your actions. Get creative; ask the warden if he feels his vehicle does more damage than your dirt bike. At least you’ll leave the courtroom receiving something for your money, even if it’s just the DA’s and Judge’s time. After you win or lose, your punishment, write your two senators, one house rep, one state senator, one state house rep, governor and join an OHV club that sues the government for your rights. Explain your views on public lands, taxes, let them know you plan on voting in all elections (AND DO IT), spread the word “DIRT BIKE RIDING IS NOT A CRIME”. Lastly get involved the four guys who bashed you aren’t looking out for you or your neck of the woods.
