Metal is good. Stronger than bone and when you die your family can just recycle you..... That's what I'm working towards.

Carrizo Plain threatened

From the AMA today;

Carrizo Plain National Monument: New rules threaten OHV use Take Action!

[ the Bozo's at the BLM have decided that our dual sport motorcycle excursions through the Carrizo plain should end]

On Dec. 21, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management announced establishment of interim final supplementary rules for public lands managed by the Carrizo Plain National Monument in Kern and San Luis Obispo counties, Calf.. The American Motorcyclist Association believes your comments are necessary to prevent the closing of this area to off-highway vehicle use.

As stated in the Bureau of Land Management’s Federal Register Notice:
“Recently there has been a noticeable increase in Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) use in the Monument. Monument resources, including the majestic grasslands that offer refuge for endangered, threatened, and rare plant and animal species, are highly susceptible to damage from OHV use. The significant fossil assemblages and cultural artifacts associated with the Monument are also susceptible to OHV damage. This led to the determination during the planning process that non-street-legal vehicles generally are not compatible with the Monument Proclamation.”
The AMA is concerned the proposed actions may unnecessarily restrict street-legal, dual-purpose motorcycles. The AMA advocates responsible motorized recreation on public land. We want to ensure that our members and their friends and families will be able to continue to enjoy the American outdoors. Motorized recreation has a substantial and growing economic impact on many small communities in the West. We feel it is important that the management of BLM land be adequately defined and easily enforceable so that we avoid unnecessary restrictions being placed on America’s motorized outdoor recreation.

The AMA strongly encourages everyone who enjoys recreating on our nation’s federal land to provide comments. All comments must be received by Feb. 19 for full consideration. If you want to help protect the off-highway trails that you, your family and your friends enjoy, this is an opportunity you can't afford to miss! According to the Federal Register notice, all comments must be hand-delivered or mailed to the Bakersfield Field Office at the address below. Please print the provided comment letter, or even better, use your own words from personal experience, and send it in. In addition, we encourage you to utilize the automated system and send an email to the address provided.

Contact:
Ryan Cooper
Outdoor Recreation Planner
3801 Pegasus Drive
Bakersfield, CA 93308
Tel: 661-391-6048
Email: racooper@blm.gov
Send written comments to:
Bureau of Land Management
Attention: Ryan Cooper
BLM Bakersfield Field Office
3801 Pegasus Drive
Bakersfield, CA 93308

Provide your comments today. You are encouraged to add personal stories to this prepared comment. Be sure to urge the BLM to keep every responsible user in mind. The AMA has prepared pre-written comments for you to send. You can act today by selecting the “Take Action” option.

Written comments on the interim final supplementary rules should be specific, confined to issues pertinent to the interim final supplementary rules, and explain the reason for any recommended change. Comments requesting changes to decisions in the RMP/ROD would be outside the scope of this rule making.

Where possible, comments should reference a specific provision of these interim final supplementary rules. The BLM need not consider or include in the Administrative Record: (a) Comments that the BLM receives after the close of the comment period Feb. 19, unless they are postmarked or electronically dated before the deadline, or (b) Comments delivered to an address other than one of those listed above.

Before including your address, telephone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment--including your personal identifying information--may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask the BLM in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, they cannot guarantee that they will be able to do so.

Please join the AMA to help us fight these efforts to end responsible motorized recreation. More members means more clout against our opponents, and your support will help the AMA fight for your rights – on the road, trail, racetrack, and in the halls of government. To join, go to AmericanMotorcyclist.com/membership/join.

There isn't an "OHV area" as such. Off Highway Vehicles had previously been allowed on the BLM roads in the Carrizo Plain National Monument. OHVs were never legal to operate on SLO county roads such as the Elkhorn and Soda Lake Roads and Off Highway travel has never been permitted.

One should be clear that this is about a loss of OHV access. That is an issue for concern. While it makes sense for the AMA to express concerns that "the proposed actions may unnecessarily restrict street-legal, dual-purpose motorcycles.", the elimination of OHV use from the BLM roads inside the National Monument boundaries does not change dual sport motorcycle use on BLM or SLO county roads.

BTW, Ryan Cooper, the BLM Recreation Coordinator that we should write to, has publicly voiced support for dual sport rides through the Carrizo. I think he would love hearing from the ADV community.

thanks dave for clarifying the ohv thing.

even with a better understanding of the blm statement, i still have some apprehension. their action is leading somewhere.

IMAO, cattle grazing is the biggest threat to the Carrizo Plains, but they have a stronger lobby.

I'm new here and wondering where you post plans for "LA Adventure Rides" ? I'm being a little sarcastic, but with almost 2k pages on this thread I'm wondering if there's a more of a listing thread for upcoming rides where noobs like me can maybe hook up with more experienced local riders and learn the routes and that sort of thing.

I've got the toys and the time, but I have no idea WTF I'm doing! Pretty scary, huh!?
