Wish I could join you there, but I have to keep RedBird Station open that weekend.

It is our Halloween night ride and I'm sure I will be swamped.

Plan on doing the Loose Nut ride the following weekend instead.

Not me! I want people to know "why" I look this way.
I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

IN 135 Closed S. of Story

There were no barriers or signs up until the Christianburg Rd. intersection about 4 miles SE of Story. The actual roadwork is about 1 mile south of the Beck's Grove intersection (or about 6 miles SE of Story). The state designated detour is US 58.
I took Beck's Grove east to 525 S. to US 58 this afternoon. It is a good ride.

Closed or Abandoned Roads

Question for those of whom are familiar with the forest areas in our fair state. What are the rules pertaining to riding on closed or abandoned roads? I came upon a lovely "closed" road with a locked barrier and noticed a group of hunters unlocking the gate and driving their pickup through it. I may or may not have enjoyed what was beyond the gate anyways but I am unclear as to what the rules officially are, because allegedly there is some fun riding beyond some of these barriers, not that I would know.

Many of the roads you're looking at were originally county roads most of which were closed illegally by State and Federal officials by bypassing the formal abandonment process and just putting up a gate. A classic and current example of this is Combs Rd. near Elkinsville, IN. The Brown County Commissioners gave this a five-year "temporary" closure at least that many years ago but I can assure you unless someone raises hell about it the gates will remain closed without due process.

Others roads on State property are logging or fire trails. In the HNF there are no fire trails, at least according to what they've told me and only recently have they begun limited logging again.

All of them are off-limits to our use.
What a waste and a shame of some great dual sport roads. There is potential there for a great little trail system.

What is the penalty if the man catches one of us enjoying what joy there could be had beyond the barriers?
