    Speed limits, Radar Guns - Say it Ain't So

    This one caught me as humorous – unless it were to happen here. Cruising the NorCal board and ran into it. First I thought it was a joke, then realized they actually use radar guns on bikes out there. I guess the trails are way more open and too many riders bomb down the mountain –probably on crowded multi-use trails. Some of our West Coast friends think its all about the money. Who knows...

    I think our Mid-Atlantic trails have too many strainers for excessive speed to be too bad of a problem; Darwinism kicks in and weeds out most who take too many chances.

    15 mph speed limits, $300 fines; whats next Barney Fife on Props Run?

    Hence why I love WV. This is as bad as when the MDSP were using night vision goggles to chatch people NOT wearing seat belts at night.
