yeah honestly owning an atv here is a lot of work, and costs IF you want to be legal, which again so few do!
most guys here are lucky if they do 200-300 miles a yr, and all they do is basically ride and MAYBE plow a drive way, and they think this is a LOT of use LOL
I got into atv's 20+ yrs ago, when I could ride all day and never cross the same trail and was allowed to(coming off mx bikes , which I still enjoy I think more)
but then all the atver's started again traveling thru private lands hauling trash and beer bottles and cans every where making trails every where they felt like it, never asking permission, and well land owners had enough and posted everything that was once open to ride without issue's!
the fact land owners would get fined for the trash others dumped and they had to PAY to have it cleaned up or keep getting fines, didn;t help
add in all the hunters trespassing too, and it ruined a good thing we once had here for sure!
After the big land lock from being posted, I started using atv's mostly for work on farms , and for hunting only, or plowing snow, with some small trail riding at times,
I still rode my MB and street bikes more, as I been lucky to know enough land owners to have access to miles of trails, but I cannot take anyone with me most places, so, its like having places, but not a ton of fun after your not a young kid anymore to ruin alone
riding along gets boring, and well, I've had a few bad crashes that left me stranded for hours till some one happened by LOL to get me help!
so now I am older, I just don't enjoy riding alone much, street bike I still do at times, but not so much sleds or atv's/MX bikes
a blast behind my house(10,000 plus acres and about a 50 miles of SMALL loops you can see trails next to each other as you ride LOL) its ok to get it out of your system every now and then, but I been riding these same road/hills and such for almost 40 yrs, can ride them blindfolded I think at this point!
so, not as much fun as riding new places, alone or with folks?/
you guys that have so many riding area's are SPOILED, best advice I can give you, is learn to appreciate them, and follow the rules, NOT doing so will end up loosing them on you's
like so many find out, how you don't appreciate things till there gone!, and thats when its too late to change thing!
speed limits and closed trails for ?? suck, but better to wait and ride when you can than loose it all yr like we did here/
and the salt in the wounds here, PA has the MOST public land on the easy coast, literally millions of acres of state and federal lands, and 95% is closed to atv use, and ALL of it has raods on it that COULD be opened if wanted!
were forced to BUY a state registration, a LIC plate, have insurance, WEAR a helmet, and STILL we cannot ride legally any where but our own land?? WHAT a SCAM
but IF you want to be legal in PA, that's the price to pay!
