Just to clarify a couple of things for you Strom...
1) You live in Montana, one of the last great wilderness states. You have no idea how good you've got it.
2) ln other places with great wilderness, most are ruined by politics. For instance, in Washington, we do have some motorcycle allowed trails, but they are not generally shared with hikers or horsemen, who have way more places to go.
3) ln places where bikes can ride in Washington (and many other states, l understand), they must be street legal, which could be this guy's big beef.
