Keep electing those Democrats! They will be telling you what you can and cant eat. This legislation is beyond BS. I am a police officer in this state. You will read about me in the papers if an EPA cop comes on my private property and tries to act. Then when they try to pull the old calling social services because they say I am putting my boy in harms way, I trust the judges will call BS on this too.

Registered on private property? Are you Shi!!&* me?!

Age restrictions= BS

Registered in a state that I cant even ride offroad in?= BS

Read this bill people, its all over the race organizations websites. Its going to put people out of work and send businesses under. Oh and your young ones wont be able to share the fun with you because they cant ride at all.

Im coming home from Brazil that day. If I am home early enough, I arleady have plans to go with a group of people I pit with. That would be the 12th in Worcester.

Did they change the venue yet. There is going to be alot of people there and theyre not gonna fit in the EPA HQ.

Man this is awful. It's like they want us to move to New Hampshire. I don't mind safety courses, I did the snowmobile one for NH, but I think an online only thing would be fine along with requiring an adult to be with a minor. But I think the private property tops all of them because my Dad and I enjoy buying and selling older bikes and now we can't even ride them around our pit? Absolutely pathetic. I guess we can thank Deval Patrick. I can't believe people voted for him.... But I do like Scott Brown.

I was not impressed with the showing last night at all. I thought there would be alot more people there, alot more. The venue was still undersized too. I may have seen a half dozen MX guys at the place which is very disappointing. The only MX people that showed were reps from the tracks and race organizations. *** guys? If you dont act, you wont be racing or riding in Mass.

On a positive note I spoke with the Capt. from the EPA that was present and he said that most of this has been on the books for 24 years. He cant recall anyone (epa) going to a track and giving people shit for not being registered etc. If your not wearing a helmet like an idiot, he is going to confront you. Furthermore if any of his underlings start that BS they will be spoken to.

I dont know what to tell you woods guys. Too many factors to consider on that side of the fence. Bottom line is its the rogue idiots ripping up private property, protected land and golf courses that are bringing all this attention about.

I say we have to start POLICING OUR OWN. As far as where all this will go after these hearings, I just dont know. The politicians obviously dont give 2 shits enough even to show up at the hearing, at least not last night.

      I'm currently active military and have 4 years to decide on what to do when I get out. I have post 9/11 gi bill so I can go to college or technical school for free,  and I love the northeast and saw there's a good amount of mx tracks up there, good roads for motorcycles,  and excellent mountain biking. 
      I'm here for any input on good jobs up there that some of you have, I'm currently looking at real estate but they often work weekends.  So if you have a job that you don't hate going to everyday please let me know what you do and if you want to say the good and bad parts of it.
       
      thanks in advance

      So I'm starting to get a bit sick of riding the same old stretches of quad/sxs trails along the mass/NY border, and am looking to stretch my dualsport's legs a bit more in New England. 
      I know there's plenty of legal riding in the Western Mass state forests as well as class four roads in VT, I'm hoping there are some well traveled riders who can give me some recommendations for technical bike oriented trails in the area, or point me to riding groups who seek out such things.

      MCI is pleased to announce we have been working our butts off to create what we feel is the best Stump Jumper in quite some time! We first took the opportunity to (again) hold a Fall Sand Run. What that means to you is a more pleasant enduro experience. Pretty colors, no bugs, and virtually zero over-heating of the bikes/you. The fall is the best time of the year to ride, so come ‘on out and pin that thing!

      First on the agenda, we took a long hard look at NOT sending you down 539 in the morning so you know what that means… you’re going to get something a little warmer, a little “slower” to start the day. Trust us, we engineered things so you can start you day by testing your time keeping skills. No ridiculous “Tricks” that waste your whole day, just a fun way to show all you know how to get the 00/00!

      After the “warmer” morning you are going to be treated to an amazing route that crisscrosses the wonderful forest known as Bass River. The majority of your day will be filled with fun, flowing, smooth, clean pathways that have been painstakingly maintained by the elite MCI strike force. All you old MX guys, does the words “MX special tests” mean anything to you??? Ah yes, I can hear the rev-limiters popping now… If you come out of Bass River at the end of the day without a smile welded on your face, I’d recommend selling you dirt bike and taking up knitting.
