frankly, what right do I or anyone else have to tell another what they “need” for a bike? Come on.
Hmmm, so what not rules?….you’re OK with someone riding a motocross bike on MTB trails?….no, you “come on.”
We have entirely too many people (at least in my neck of the woods) trying to limit MTB trails as is. We don’t need to give them any more ammo for their anti-MTB arsenal with motorized fare. — If we don’t police ourselves, others will happily do it for us.
Grumpy old man? ….you are damn right! And, if you were wise, you’d get grumpy too.
