Off-highway riders are a special breed. Here are eight reasons we love off-road riding.
1. No left-turning cars.
2. You can get to the absolute middle of nowhere without breathing hard.
3. You can be breathing so hard in minutes when you hit the tough stuff.
4. You can ride near your limits without breaking any laws.
5. With trees and tight trail, you don't need to go a hundred miles an hour to feel like you are.
6. Knobbies in the snow.
7. There's real satisfaction in fixing your own bike on the trail, 10 miles from the truck.
8. When you get there, the view from the top really is spectacular.
