    Saw this on TTORA and it made me a bit sick. All the discussion necessary has been said in their forum, but I thought I'd spread the word to keep folks safe.

    Now that shit pisses me off. I live in a rural area and when I moved in I was one of maybe a handfull of residents in my neighborhood. Now there are more and of course some of them are a bunch of whiners trying to take over and complaining about everything. I live in the desert and our neighborhood is surrounded by trails and such. I change the fluids in my CRF250 and then run them for a few minutes to get eveything moving. I left my garage on a saturday about 2 in the afternoon and this douche bag indian guy (like dot head indian, no feathers) and his fat wife come out and call me over to thier fence. I go over there and they start complaining about the noise and such. I was never disrespectful and kept speeds and noise down as much as possible, so I explained to them that it was only for a max of 5 minutes and in the middle of the day so kick back and deal with it. Literally a week later I was walking my dogs on the trails and caught that guy putting a HUGE rock around a blind curve. He essentially set up a trap that if I hit on my bike could have broken bones or even paralyzed me. He set it up so I would hit it. Not so I would see it and not ride there any more, but in a blind curve where I would hit it and injur myself. The first time he saw me I had a helmet on so he had no idea who I was when I came up to him with my dogs, I asked what he was doing. And he explained some guy with his dirt bike rides back here and that this would stop him. At that point I told him that I was that guy on the bike and went ape on him because he was basically threating my life with this trap. So I threatened his life at that point, smacked his ass around a bit untill he came close to crying, then I made him remove his trap and explained that if he did it again it would be much of the same. I went home got my bike and went to his fence and roosted his whole yard, pool, windows everything. He just watched me. I wasn't being disrespectful the first time when he asked me to stop, I never rode any longer than needed to get fluids moving and the engine warmed up. He took it to a place where someone could have gotten hurt, and I wasn't the only one who rode out there, there are kids 12 or 13 years old that ride out there on the weekends for a little bit, what if one of them hit that thing? They could have litteraly been killed! People who do that shit deserve to be curbied. Ass holes

    I was gonna go through a huge mudhole on some state land. My buddy talked me out of it. Found out a few daze later someone had chucked a shopping cart and a bbq grille into it and it was below the water surface. Got tangled up under a jeep, would have really tore up my taco.

    That must have been a damn deep hole to hide a shopping cart and a grille. It's a good thing you didn't drive through it.

    Nah, people who do things like that don't deserve that kind of justice. They deserve the kind that comes out of my glove box. One behind the ear, like a dog with rabies. I look at that as a threat to me and mine. My little brothers ride, my little sister goes out there with them, my fiance rides, if any of them got hurt by a well placed rock or some spikes. There aren't prison walls high enough to keep me from you.
