Really TejonTech? People like you are the most inconsiderate, selfish and greedy people I have ever dealt with. The Captain Jack trail system is the ONLY trail open to motorcycles in ALL of El Paso County. How many trails do you have in the county for hiking and biking? I would bet well over 100 and we have 1 and now it's forced to close over a bogus argument about a stupid fish. Ill hike my ass up there and eat one just to piss you off.
Here is an idea. If you don't like the pollution and noise, THEN STAY OFF OUR TRAIL AND GO HIKE ONE OF THE 100+ THAT ARE DESIGNATED FOR YOUR TYPE OF USE! If you don't agree with that you snob, then put earplugs in and get over it.
The fact is, inconsiderate people like you who think your way is the only way need to be stopped. The more trails you close forces more motor traffic on the only ones left open. This leads to the closure of those trails down the road due to over usage. If our trails are all closed up, we are not going to just sell off our bikes and quit the sport. We will fight back and ride the trails anyway, and make new ones without any control by government or the public. Having designated trails for motorized use is important or the end result is chaos. Continued closures lead to heavy traffic and safety issues for us. Most of us obey the signs that say "no motorized use" and we stay away. Do you really think that will continue if everything closes up? If you do, you are in for a big surprise.
The majority of motorcyclists are very considerate to others. We take care of our trails, we fund many organizations that maintain the trails and we clean up after ourselves. There are a few that don't, but there are also many hikers and mountain bikers that leave trash, shoot guns and leave ammo and are pigs in general.
You will never get rid of the idiots and you’re an example. It's people like us, responsible riders that clean up and maintain these trails. If it weren't for us, you would not have these trail systems. Many of them were created by dirt bikes, and are now closed to us but exist for your entertainment. We all have a right to enjoy public land, You have your right to enjoy public land in a quiet environment free from dirt bikes. We should also have the right to enjoy our trails free from ignorant people like you who think the world should suddenly adopt the same opinions and beliefs as you have.
I will respect this closure and will stay off the trail until a final outcome. I am hoping we can re-route the trail system to keep both sides of this argument happy. This is reasonable. If however the trail system closes without anything to take its place, well then I will wave to you as i ride by with a smile on my face. Screw your fish.
And for those that think dirt bikes are not exercise, I enjoy all three activities and nothing compares to the physical demands of riding a dirt bike. There is no comparison, but you would not know that TejonTech because you have never done it, or at least done it with any skill behind it. Here is yet another example of your ignorance.
This trail has been open to motorcycles for 50 years and your special fish has survived a half century of our evil motorcycles. By this theory...that this fish has survived 50 years of motorcycle abuse and its the "only" creek known that this fish can survive, then we should open all creekside trails to motorized travel. This is simply another bulk of lies by tree huggers to close public land.
