Everyone needs to realize until EVERYONE learns to be courteous when riding on public lands and be aware of their surroundings (This means the people camping, hiking,fishing,jeeping, etc...) I ride everywhere and i cant count the number of times i slow down to not kick up dust or pose a threat when passing others enjoying public lands as well, and i almost get ran over or hit by other riders with no patience or concern for others. Sometimes the QUIET bikes are more dangerouse than the loud cause you dont here them coming...
Years ago when i was jeeping on rubicon trail i got out to look at a tough spot on trail and did not here a quiet bike coming up from behind FAST and here ran up my leg and across my back. (Oh what a feeling!!!) luckily i am not a tree hugger and complained..

Maybe this is a good complaint about QUIET bikes?

"Some people will always want more power but do they really need it?"

Do you really need a 250F? :) Maybe an XR250 would be a better choice??? :D

What do we really need? How much is enough? How loud is too loud? This topic could go on forever. :D

Lets all just ride responsibly. Wherever and whatever we're riding. :D

Maybe it comes from watching too many re-runs of "Tool Time"
Argh...Argh...Argh...Argh...More Power :D :D :D
