Not that I would ever consider it, but what can be some of the penalties for riding in a place you're not supposed to ride? ticket? impounding? misdemeanor for trespassing? jail-time? beat-down? Any 1st hand accounts?
He let me go with a warning, and $100 fine. Glad to get out of there, we rode back on the road and then cut back into the trail. I have been back but it still gives me the creeps to ride there. It's ok that peoples dump trash including dead bodys, have openly gay sex, set fires, Sleep/live Yet it's my bike that gets me in trouble there. Crap i tell ya:getsome:
I've been riding in the off limits areas on and off for the entire length of the ban. I've never been even yelled at. I have never even met someone that has had any legal threat at them.
My race bike had all the paperwork. It was great cause everyone would bolt and I'd just keep cruisin along til they'd stop me only to find that all they had was the "failure to inspect" option".Those where the days........Never have had a problem on a bicycle. While dirtbiking, I have probably been chased by cops in patrol cars or quads about 20 times, but they couldnt have caught me even if I was riding my bicycle. So fun having them try though. Only once at saxton falls about 10 years ago did a cop sit and wait by my truck for us to get back. She was pretty cool though. She said "tell you what, if you can get loaded up and out of here in 5 minutes, I wont give you a ticket" Needless to say that we got the bikes on the truck in record time. Friend of mine got caught riding in franklin and got tickets for unregistered, uninsured vehicle (which is a NJ trap since you cant register or title a motocross bike), and tresspassing, and they inpounded his bike. I think he had to pay about $1000 in fines, etc. I highly doubt anything that drastic would happen to a mountain biker. Most likely just a ticket for tresspassing.
