Was home alone today, here in big lake and someone came thru our subdivision and decided the burms by my front porch looked like fun. he (it, she,he whatever) was jumping his machine in my driveway, did about three loops in my front year, coming within a foot of my house once and the other times within 20 feet of the front of my garage door. wife was gone with the truck so they probably thought no one was home.
Needless to say i was hot, if i had caught them out there it wouldn't have been good, for me or them.
Some times the ignorance of people blows me away, this is the kinda of activity thats gives ditch riders a bad rap..pulling off for a quick run thru someones yard of fresh powder. i have a one year old and three year old that play on those snow burms, if they ahd been there the rider would have never seen them...do the math. I'd have been crushing a helmet with something and quick.
Talked with the troopers on what my rights were, so next time it happens i know i can legally take the guys snowmachine and make a citizens arrest for trespassing and if my kids are there, endangering their lives.
This is no little thing, hotdoggin' in someones yard is not cool...i realize this forum might not have riders that succumb to the temptation to carve up some nice snow by their front window, but just pass it around and diss on guys who do it, then maybe stuff like this will happen less often and i'll feel better about my kids playing in their own yard.
