    Maryland Off-Highway Vehicle Alliance

    From their Facebook page; "Kitzmiller Town Hall Update: Maryland DNR had approximately 100 residents and about a dozen MDOHVA members show up to learn more and voice opinions about Wolf Den Run State Park. The room was packed to the point that half of the people present were standing 2-3 deep around the perimeter of the room. The mood was best described as cautiously optimistic. Many in the community have spent time on the property and were worried their ORV access would no longer be allowed. The conc...ept of the state opening the land back up for riding have many excited to both use the land, and see the money that follows OHV come into the town. The biggest concern was over trespassing and previous "outlaw" type activities. The property in the past was not tightly managed with people riding onto surrounding properties and partying at all hours of the night. The State is committed, with our support, to solving these problems as well as opening the property in some capacity to the public by Summer 2019."

    Maryland Off-Highway Vehicle Alliance

    I just joined too! I will ask and find out. I know a lot of information about the alliance's work is also posted on their Facebook page.
  3. Saturday 10/20, Maryland Off-Highway Vehicle Alliance organize members to meet with DNR officials at Wolf Den Run State Park, ride parcel “C” of the property and to make recommendations about the property’s use at a town hall meeting. Over a dozen members of the MDOHV Alliance attended riding; dirt-bikes, 4-wheelers, side by sides and jeeps. Over 100 individuals attended the town hall meeting in Kitzmiller, including 15-DNR officials and a dozen members from the MDOHV Alliance. DNR purchased the property specifically for OHV use. DNR is very receptive to input from MDOHV Alliance to improve the property’s OHV appeal. The town hall meeting went very well. Questions were asked and answered, detailed maps were displayed, and suggestions were made and well received. I did not hear anyone publicly objecting to OHV use for the property. DNR is planning to open sections of this property OHV’s by summer of 2019. Wolf Den Run State Park is a beautiful riding area. There is over 2-miles of OHV trail that parallels the scenic Potomac River and dozens of miles of hidden single track that once enhanced this 2,000-acre property. The MDOHV Alliance has played a vital role in moving DNR forward to purchase this property. MDOHV Alliance has also played a vital role in moving forward legislation to promote safe and legal riding areas. Several notable pieces of legislation were 1) Eliminating liability of private property owners that allow OVH riding on their property, 2) Allowing OHV legal access to non-state roads with a permit in Garret and Allegany counties (creating the possibility of a Hatfield & McCoy style trail system in MD), and 3) Guaranteeing a portion of all OHV titling taxes go directly to create and maintained OHV specific trails. It is now more important than ever to become involved in MDOHV Alliance. The style of trails, camping amenities and regulations that DNR are considering at Wolf Den Run State Park are likely to become models for future OHV parks in the state. MDOHV Alliance is looking for your membership and support to insure Wolf Den Run State Park is successful and to encourage the MD Legislature and DNR to open additional OHV opportunities in the state of MD.

    Bike Weight Overrated?

    I have been riding/racing the heavy big bore bikes for over 30 years. They are my single track weapon of choice. When momentum or speed does not provide the traction required, the big bores provide the combination of smooth low end torque needed to walk up the snottiest hills out there. They also feel more stable, to me, at all speeds particularly going over rocks and roots. The so called negatives of heavy bikes, can for the most part, be overcome through riding style. The xr600 in the pic is over 300lbs, I'm a bit over 250 with out the gear. They were all smooth landings!
