I want to fight this what can I do??? Am I screwed? I have been offroading in the santa ynez river my whole life and I cannot believe this, they are enforcing this on ATV's!!! Any one ever deal with something like this before?

welcome newbie.

Unfortunately, most folks such as yourself do not get active until its too late. But don't fret, soon everyone will be in your shoes.

I strongly encourage you to financially support open access organizations such as Blue Ribbon Coalition. These folks are our friends and work hard towards our goal of open access; however, they require money to fight the good fight.

Matter of fact, I'm looking at their banner as I type this...

Additionally, I suggest you look at your next favorite area to ride because it is most likely threatened also.

sorry for your lose.
