Yea, I too like to ride trucks and motorcycles through beautiful scenery. I've been up into some of the areas that are slated to be re-opened. If we are in favor of this proposal/decision, please let's not say that vehicles and increased motorized visitation won't have a negative impact on these areas. If we want to open up these roads because we feel that it's our right as Americans to drive EVERYWHERE, that's fine. Let's not justify it with the assertion that guys and their trucks and motorcycles and friends and guns and noise and trash and gathering wood and driving off the trails…. won’t have a negative net impact on the overall health of the desert. I can tolerate selfishness but not ignorance.
