DON'T RIDE ALONE, UNSAFE, LET ME KNOW

Recommended Posts

So many things can go wrong, while out riding, even when with others, when getting away from the group! Try to always ride with at least one other person! If your over 50 and ride alone let me know, I'll try to go with you. I know the trails pretty good, up north, around St Helen, Mi. or I'll try to try areas of the state your more accustom to. I know its too cold now, but spring will be here before you can blink an eye lol
I can ride with the slowest dude in the pack, to WOT! Get in touch before season starts for more inf. Thanks, Steve

Love going out just for a cruise. Here is a question. Whith  all of my bikes I add on the front and back Go pro cam mounts.   I do it bc I like to see how the ride looks afterwards. The rear cam catches my son who is usually behind me. And the front just for shits and giggles. But it’s also good to record other things.  So when I’m out solo upstate I like to turn it on and go cruising and hope to catch a deer or any other crazy animal that may jump out. 

Bottom line of anything happens it’s on video!!!

Just picked up a Sportsman Touring.  I've always rode with buddies sledding but I need to find out where and who to go wheeling with.  Definitely wise to ride with others than solo.

I'll go riding solo in the Rockies,  but always carry a pack with enough supplies to last a day or so and try to stay on the more frequently traveled trails

I was gonna write a big long speech about me riding alone .... but I deleted it. Lets just say, you ride how you want, & I'll ride how I want ... and most of the time, I ride alone ... and I like it !! Been doing the "Alone Thing" for over 50 yrs ... hunting, trapping, snowshoeing, camping, and ATVing in the spring, summer, fall & winter (on tracks) .... and I'm still here.  :twitsy:

But like some have mentioned, if one does ride alone, don't do stupid stuff, don't take unnecessary risks, have the means to spend a night or two in the wild, let someone know where you plan to spend the day, and if possible, have a way to communicate with the world or send an SOS. (i.e. Garmin InReach or a SPOT device.)  :unsure: .... BTW, I only got the way to communicate with the world in the past couple years., before that, I was TOTALLY alone ....... YEAH BUDDY !!! 

I'm not trying to justify or say a guy should ride alone, but if a guy has someone to ride with, SWEET !!! ..... If not, well then, you either sell your ATV or ... You Ride Alone !!  :yes:

 

WHAT !?!? :chatterboxn: ...... :biglaugh:

      ATV trails to be connected by 2020
      Local news Jun 30, 2018

      New bill could increase tourism in the county
      LOCK HAVEN — Due to a hard-fought change in the state’s fiscal code, Clinton County will finally have an all-terrain vehicle trail connecting the Whiskey Springs Trail to Bloody Skillet by 2020.
      State Rep. Mike Hanna (D-Lock Haven) had a hand in pushing the legislation through, said county Commissioner Jeff Snyder, who has been supportive of ATV tourism in the region.
      Hanna said the project had been in the works since the era of former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, who ended his term in 2011.
      “We just decided it was time to get this,” he said.
      The bill, an amendment to the fiscal code, says that appropriations for the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) must include the agency’s collaboration with PennDOT to “develop, open and maintain an ATV trail connecting the Whiskey Springs ATV Trail to the Bloody Skillet ATV Trail by utilizing existing state roads and state forest roads by April 1, 2020.”
      The amendment also provides for DCNR and PennDOT to “implement the full Northcentral Pennsylvania ATV Initiative” which would create a network of ATV trails from Clinton County to the New York State border by April 1, 2024. This network would link the Haneyville, Bloody Skillet, Snowshoe Rail Trail, Denton Hills and Whiskey Springs trails.
      Central Mountains ATV Association President Henry Sorgen IV said his organization has been working on the initiative for the last four years, trying to connect all the ATV trails in northcentral Pennsylvania up to the New York State border. The organization has 1,300 members.
      Sorgen said Hanna and State Sen. Joseph Scarnati (R-Brockway) were instrumental in making the necessary changes to the fiscal code. But, he said, it wouldn’t have been possible without support from township and borough councils, county government, regular citizens and CMATVA.
      “It’s always been a team initiative,” he said.
      CMATVA gave a presentation to the governor’s staff several months ago, which “started that ball rolling,” said Sorgen. “It’s all about tourism…that’s gonna be huge.”
      PennDOT has a policy that ATV riders cannot use state roads. But state law says the district manager can authorize ATV usage on state roads. So, Sorgen said, the fiscal code amendment is a way to remedy that contradiction.
      Hanna said the project will rely very little on state roads to connect the trails. DCNR is conducting a study through Larson Design Group to determine the best way to connect the trails without using state roads.
      One place ATV riders will have to use a state road is the South Renovo Bridge, Hanna said.
      Hanna was clear that the development of these trails will have no cost to taxpayers. “As far as trail development goes,” he said, it will all be funded by ATV registration fees. Right now, there are around $180,000 in that fund, said Sorgen.
      “There’s no doubt about it, motorized recreation has a tremendous economic impact,” said Hanna. “The number of trucks, trailers and ATVs (on those trails on a holiday weekend) is phenomenal.”
      Sorgen said CMATVA wants to make northcentral Pennsylvania’s trail network “the Hatfield McCoy of Pennsylvania.”
      ATV tourism is a $1 billion industry in West Virginia, and Hatfield McCoy is one of the state’s most popular trails.
      Sorgen said he is sure ATV tourism will be a boon to local residents in Clinton, Center, Potter, Elk and Cameron counties. In Germania, which is near the Denton Hills ATV Trail, he said, there is a small general store with one gas pump that used to make $1,000 a month in gas sales. After ATV travel was legalized there, the store’s monthly sales skyrocketed to 10 times that.
      “That’s the potential,” he said. “What’s (ATV tourism) gonna do for little Renovo? It’s gonna boom.”
      And, according to a study on ATV recreation in Clinton County done in 2015, the average rider spends approximately $1,400 in the county annually. Those surveyed said they would visit about five more times a year (about 12 times total) if connector trails were built between the existing trail systems and the surrounding communities. The study said increased visits would more than double the annual spending per rider.
      Right now, Sorgen said, there are 1,800 miles of riding trail, and 49 percent of that is open to ATVs, whether that be on roads operated by DCNR, private property owners or township councils. But that is set to change soon, with the new state fiscal code amendment. Sorgen estimated the new law will add 200 miles of viable trail. And, he said, the existing CMATVA map will change once they submit the new map to PennDOT.
      Hanna said for people who have concerns about motorized recreation, the Larson Group study is taking environmental impact into consideration.
      “It’s not just “slap a trail on,“” said Hanna.
      And Sorgen said he fully supports finding an environmentally friendly way to implement ATV trails that would connect the existing ones.
      He lamented that while “98 percent of us want to follow the rules,” 2 percent of ATV riders don’t respect the land and want to offroad where it’s not allowed.
      “We don’t want to be in wetlands,” he said. “We don’t want to be in natural areas where we don’t belong.”
