Running outa places to ride!(So Cal riders only)

Last Saturday I got another FN ticket for riding on private land. This is my second one in 3yrs since they started cracking down on riders in Riverside county. I've been riding this place for years with no worries, but now for whatever reasons they've been everywhere citing people. Riverside county has a special task force( made up of sherriffs on KTM 450's) busting up all the best riding places. Basicly what they told me is hat the only place I could ride in So. Cal. is at a local track or BLM land(like Occotillo wells) which is way far. It's gettin pretty bad around here, lots of people are complaining, personally I think it's all for revinue. I'ts a damn shame cuz southern California has one of the most sickest riding spots around.

Any other So Cal riders run into this B.S?

I've lived in Riverside county since 1986. I used to ride anywhere and everywhere, and wave to the cops. Gilman, Beaumont, Chicken Ranch, Redlands, Box Springs, Badlands, Snake Mountain, Sun City, Perris, Corona hills, everywhere. Now I just stick to the tracks or Wildomar OHV. I've been stopped, but not ticked yet, but I am paranoid. Its a losing battle and we only look bad by getting caught.

Yeah I went to high school in MoVal...I know pretty much all those places you mentioned, now those were the days! I still have a couple of my best kept secrets...hopefully it stays that way for a bit.

problem with you riding peoples private land, you hurt yourself on there land and sue them which is unlikely, but your insurance then suing those people is more common than you think...its all about liability

yea, insurance companies will go after the land owner even if you don't want that to happen. The nice folk that didn't mind us using the land are getting punished by the insurance companies that we support... it is a messed up situation.
