Hear, Hear!  (to John's suggestion that the continuous thread be for those on foot only and be clearly understood/marked if it is not!)

If I ever see another motocyclist tearing up what is clearly marked as footpath-only trail only while I am there on the spot, I will curse out loud, throw rocks, hit them with my poles, spit, scratch, anything I can think of.  This angers me to no end.

Tell me, Bruce Ward, what has the Association ever done to curtail illegal usage of the trail?  Slap the USFS on the back of their hands?
