Both street and the forest can be enjoyed and be a safe way. You must be aware of others around you and the biggest thing: Know your bike, Know your limits.

+1

If you're going the speed limit at either venue, the backroads are safer. No question about that. Most who go down on the backroads are due to a combination of rider error and/or excessive speeding, imho.

I'll take backroads for $500, Alex.

Although I must admit, track days have stolen the joy of the twisty ride for me. I am sooooooooooooooooooooooo sick of the law.

freeways have a lot more to hit, and to hit you!
on back roads, scan well ahead for road debris and ride safely for your own skill to keep the rubber side down...= much safer on backroads

I don't have a preference, I just enjoy riding. I have never been on a forest ride where I felt pressure to ride above my skill level. All the guys that put them together seem to put emphasis on safety first. Outside of the good natured ribbing that we give each other about being slow/fast on the boards and during M&G's etc, I know when it comes down to it they would rather me ride within my limits and get home in one piece than try to keep up with them if I can't do so safely. Once you go down you won't say, "Man Cali/Cdill/Slowblack/<insert whoever> I was on your for those first 3 turns until I ate it", all you will remember is that your a$$ hit the pavement and your bike is jacked up.

Depends on the person, being a jacka$$ on either will get you in trouble. Forest is more fun though even at the speed limit.
