Where I'm at in Ellenville, theres a few miles of trails nothing too big, I know I can get to the overlooks on route 52 I think it is? And the hang glider launch site. I'm not registered and I don't know if I ever will be. What are the benefits of being registered?

In NY not a dam thing besides not getting a ticket for breaking the law. Been waiting for state trails in NY for 25+years and bet it will be atleast another 25... :rolleyes:

I figured, Ive had cops come after me before but they cant catch a raptor. especially a modded one on its home turf when the the rider knows every nook and cranny of the surrounding 12 miles or so.

I registered mine after I got it. It's only $20, so not like it's super expensive. There was a bunch of us out riding, had permission to be on the land. Apparently someone didn't think so and called the cops on us. Rather than trying outrun them, just go talk to them. At the end of the trail there was a Broome county sheriff sitting there. I think since we stopped at talked to him, might have been the right thing. He was cool about the whole thing.

Anyways, out of the 7-8 of us there, I was the only one who DIDN'T get a ticket for no tags. Buddy told me the ticket was $80 I think. I told him that could have paid for the reggy and a year's insurance.

Was the Sheriff Josh D ?? If so yeah he's cool he is my best friends nephew...

Beware that a trooper down here was the NYS hare scramble champion a while back and he will catch your ass...without question the fastest guy on a quad I have ever ridden with, but he's really cool also.. :p

He was telling me years ago a bunch dudes bailed when they pulled up in the Trooper cars, well one dude played it cool and didn't run...he grabbed that dudes quad and ran down the others who did run....true story

playing it cool is the best bet most times.. 8)

I know who you are talking about, were friends for years. I got my first car off him!!! He stopped us too, same place different times. There was only 4 of us then, but we all had tags, and didn't think he recognized me at first, but I think since he knew me, we had tags, he let us go.

We BS'd for a bit him racing and if he still rides, so might have helped dunno. But he can be a cocky f'n asshole if you get him going. I couldn't believe it when I found out he was a trooper, dunno how he can get thru doorways cause his head is so big.

Who all is up in the Watertown/Syracuse area? I hadn't planned on bringing my Raptor out here from Michigan, but if there are enough people to ride with and a place/places to ride on a regular basis, I'll drive home and get it. Anyway, hope to hear from some of you!
