Great article and pictures on our weekly club ride. Apparently we are "grizzled," "affable," capable of "long-form thinking," and somewhat stressed overall until we ride. Hard to argue. http://www.concordmonitor.com/community/town-by-town/weare/7886896-95/summer-nights-merrimack-valley-trail-riders-find-peace-on-the-trails

For once a dirt biking article in a news paper that I liked.

"Grizzled" can be looked up in any dictionary or mirror...

WHAT THE HECK IS GRIZZLED!



griz·zled
[griz-uhld]
adjective
1.
having gray or partly gray hair.
2.
gray or partly gray.

Seems like this adjective would accurately describe the vast majority of MVTR members.

I thought he was talking about Doc Tucker, and it turns out most of us fit that description.

What a surprise, only two comments but one of them had to be that somewhere else, at some time in the past, the writer did not like hearing bikes, snowmobiles and atvs near their home. Of course it was the ohrv's fault for being near the home, never their fault for moving near the trails (which had probably been there for a long time). Much like most 'anti-everythings' who buy a home on a dirt road, they expected it to be 'their' wilderness where no one used the roads or made a sound that they could hear.

A very nice article. Thank you to Fitz for help setting the interview up.

If you have the time, please make comment in a postive, reaffirming, sport/Club promoting manner.

Disregard those who show a less than supportive, understanding way. Those folks could never enjoy or appreciate what we have found.

Yes--do not reply to the negative, but bury it with other positive posts.

Nice article.
In my opinion, riding on a dirt bike is THE way to enjoy the great outdoors.  :)

This is an expanded response to a nah sayer of the Monnitor article. As many antis say or do; the wforests are for tranquility, fresh air and mechinized, nosey, smelly machines have no place in thier woods. After getting an 'error 409' message I thought my response did not post, so I rewrote it as a pdf. On my return to the Monitor, the original had posted. Not wanting to have wasted my hour of draft time I'm posting it here. Sorry to take up your bandwith:

I’m disappointed to not have joined my friends and fellow MVTR members for last Wednesday’s club ride and interview with Bill and the Concord Monitor.
My elder grand-son and I were headed for the North Country to fly-fish the Swift Diamond and kayak and fish Umbagog Lake. We also included a hike above Moose Cave in Grafton, Maine, picking a quart or so of blueberries on the way up. We appreciate all there is about the outdoors.
I was pleased on our return to find today’s ‘Monitor’ article. Like most social clubs, a very diverse group of participants. MVTR’s first president was Harry Perkins, who later became a NH Supreme Court judge. Profession, interests, gender nor age matters not, as all enjoy a shared interest. They share the challenge of a difficult trail, the exuberance of cleaning a section, the rush of a save (theirs or the other guy’s). They share bruises and for every personal story there are stories to share. Though there are many ways to enjoy the forests and the out of doors, this is our recreation of choice for this point in time.
For me it is a physical activity keeping joints limber, heart pumping and lungs working. Yes, bruises and broken parts happen but the body, all parts of the body are getting a good work out. In the off season I get aches and pains form lack of use, a sad recognition of age or laziness. The soreness I feel following a vigorous ride is uplifting…feel good soreness.
There is an excitement for me to share the catch of a wild trout, to track and see the flag of a white tail with friends, family, my grand kids; but just as memorable is sharing the rush of adrenaline when you push yourself and machine in traversing the rocks and roots of a technical trail section; the feel of achievement in finishing a difficult event; or the afterglow of bench racing with family and friends after an event.
An MVTR trail rider is simply a person enjoying the outdoors in a manner of his choosing; a trail bike.
Enjoy the trail of your choice.
