Default The most dirtbike-friendly place in your country is...

I'm not sure what the ultimate answer is for the USA, but I do know that the Sawtooth Mountains in Idaho set a high bar.
Connecticut is not a correct answer.



below are images by Tami of the Pampera Torture Test Team:




California is dirtbike friendly, I hear... but I think Colorado and Utah beat the pants off of that stuff...

Really, variety being the spice of life like it is...
and the grass always being greener on the other side of the fence...
I'm always thinking about picking up camp here.

OTOH, I heard a guy grabbed an 81 inch striped (sea) bass about two miles off my beach - 60 or 70 pounds. Catches off the beach are smaller usually. That's OK. My freezer is small. Striped bass is my favorite. But I digress, as usual.

Where's the best friendly riding in your country?

not trying to get political or anything...

in australia, i would have to say, anywhere in victoria.
can ride in lots of places, from desert to mountain, all within a couple of hours.
we can rec. register a dirt bike for 70 bucks a year, and you get full medical and income insurance, TAC, included in that,. - there are rules you have to follow about where you can ride, but baciaclly no freeways/main roads, not in town/cities....
but country roads are fine....
we have short summers when it gets dusty, but 8 month of the year its dirtbike heaven.
pretty bloody good.

In the UK, nowhere.

10 yrs ago the government shut 98% of our trails, and what's left is not very good and is being shut one trail at a time.

But now I ride illegally, in bits of wood and some military land.

STEALTH is the name of the game now, and night riding.

One of the main reasons I don't update my bike is if I get caught there is a good chance they confiscate your bike..

Sounds like a desperate situation over there.
Reminds me of this profane but humorous rant:

That rant is very funny - especially the translation at the end!
