That place is badass. Used to go there all the time when I worked at the paper mill when it was being demolished. Can only make a few laps and then bolt. Fishermen will call the cops. Best time to go is after they close. You can slip the bike through the gate.

I can vouch for that being a good place. Do a slow run through to check for gravel on the road. Slip in after they close, the quiter you keep the bike the longer you can probably stay there. Cops only showed up maybe once or twice while being there. If you see headlights, park your bike off the road in the woods. The cops cant drive through there, They might possibly walk with flashlight or listen for noise. Then when he/she leaves, ride out quitely.

That looks like a park loop for people bicycling and jogging.

Like previously mentioned, take a slow lap to see if there is any gravel or anyone is parked on the road. I would go out there during the day and there were only 5 or 6 people parked along the river fishing. I wouldn't go too fast if others are there. It is best to go after they close because you can haul and don't have to worry as much about someone calling the cops or getting in the way. If you run around it for 15 or 20 minutes you'll get pretty tired anyways so just bolt after that and you should be good.

They don't need any proof for a reckless charge they need only claim to have observed you operating in a reckless manner. And it's not a ticket it's an overnight stay in jail - class B misdemeanor on par with possession of marijuana or DUI.

The only way to fight it would possibly be if you had you own video - and is that gonna be something that you would actually want to introduce as evidence (considering the type of riding you plan on).

Not trying to knock your plan, I say g for it for sure. Just wanted to clear up any misconceptions you may have had about the reckless driving law.

Nobody around also means if you go down, nobody's around to call the ambulance.

Don't get me wrong, I would love some twisty bits 5 miles from my house too. Unfortunately, I've yet to find anything on the SW side. So for me, Track Days are a lot better and safer alternative.

You DO NOT need to bring your skill up to go to the track.

Seriously. That's a bullshit statement.

You'll learn far more at a track than you will trying to be Joe Cool gaining skills in a park.

We'd rather get you into trackdays right away before you hurt yourself.

Many of us, (me included) have done like this on the streets and have gotten injured.

We learned and we try to pass on knowledge and help.
