Yes people do need to take care of public land, becasue if someone does get seriously hurt or killed they will shut it down.

Not to be a dick but you really should have checked where you were going before you hit it at 50mph. Its just like when snowboarding, you always want to check your landing before you are 15 feet in the air. I made that mistake ONCE and I almost shattered my ankle. That was the end of the season for me.

Those berms were cause by dirt bikes. Dirt bikers have just as much of a right to be there as you do. They don't have to fill in berms when they leave, the wind will do that for them. It is no one's fault you were doing 50 across the sand without knowing what was ahead. You, my friend, are a tool.

P.S. I am going to post this link over at Thumpertalk.com, so we can all laugh at your ignorance.

not trying to be a dic* but that is 100% your fault. Terrain always changes and you should have pre-ran it before going that fast over it.

Alright, so next I hit a wash created by your truck and go flying over the Bars, I sure know who to blame now.

Eh, I understand Trent's POV. Its like boating, for those of you that know **** about boating. At a ramp for example, common courtesy is to back your trailer in far enough, drift the boat in to the trailer, then use the winch on the front of the trailer to pull the boat up the rest of the way. Most people just rev up their boat motors and "drive" the boat onto the trailer. All this does is erode the sediment at the end of the boat ramp. It ruins boat ramps, etc.


My dad was loading his boat once, and had to back his truck(96 crew cab dually Powerstroke) farther than normal. He didnt know it, but he dropped the wheels on the trailer off of the end of the boat ramp, in the water. He didn't know that there was a hole there from people powerloading their boats.
He went to pull up out of the water, after properly loading the boat, but a foot deep hole off the end of the ramp acted as a giant step, and stopped his F350, a HEAVY powerful truck, dead in its tracks. he had to back up, and get a run for it. He did manage to get up out of there, but slid the tandem axles on his boat trailer back a few inches, and bent a 5" drop "dogbone" getting out.

People are ignorant, and clueless, with no respect for anyone else that might want to use the public property, whether it be a boat ramp, or dunes in this case.

Sorry to hear about it all Trent! I can sympathize!

I wanted to show TT so that everyone knows that our tracks are dangerous and our irresponsible behavior almost killed someone! It is my duty to spread this around so I can save lives!

Half the people in this thread are in agreement with the OP that it is dirtbikers' fault that his truck is busted. I knew the guys at TT would get a kick out of it.

So does this mean that all of the dirt bikers that get nailed hitting road crossings in the dez beacuse a bunch of long travel trucks built up huge berms on the side of the road can complain about the trucks and not that fact that they weren't paying attention?
