Re: Losing Places to Ride, Are you concerned??
here is what you asked.
1/ Do you care? =yes
2/ Are you prepared to be proactive to save the places you like to ride from being closed to you? =yes
3/ What POSITIVE ideas do you have to try & save our sport? =none, i wouldn't know where to start
4/ Are you or any of your friends willing/interested to start some kind of dialog with other Motorcycle groups to save the sport of motorcycling & quading from being legislated out of existence? =yes
ok, so I've answred those questions, but now My question is, what can we do to help out? if someone comes up with a plan that makes sence and needs help, i'm all in, but i have no idea what i would do or could do to stop it, especially since it's not happing in my area.. it's a great topic to start, but what can we do...?
That what this thread is really about.
Asking for ideas & suggestions.
This is the ground floor, we're all looking for a place to start.
I believe (despite our best efforts in the BS threads) that we are a group of intelligent people who collectively can come up with plans to:
1/ prevent losing our places to ride
2/ prevent those that 'govern' us from outlawing our toys
3/ build links to other recreational vehicle groups (MX, Roadbikes, 4x4, other?) to build a stronger voice
4/ With the help of the above groups, possibly even open up new or formerly closed off areas for all to drive/use/ride in.
I will try to keep this thread on the first page, so it get seen.
Post your ideas, comments suggestions
I will then try to collate what you put up, & then we can possibly start to build an action plan from there to suit wherever it is that you live/ride.
I had one which is based round getting dialog going with local MX (& even RV) clubs.
