A motorcycle rider since before the age of 16.
Bill thinks motorcycle users get preferential treatment from the DNR from operator age to trail access to even the way the trails are kept up. He refuses to acknowledge that cyclists enjoy some perks because of the Michigan Cycle Conservation Club and the work it has been doing FOR THE PAST 40 YEARS.
He would much rather sling mud at the user group that has worked hard for what it has instead of taking the lead in organizing a similar group for ATV users.
I think he does a good job of addressing where things are not consistent and potentially unsafe (ATV safety instructors with no real safety training - just a warm body in some cases), however, he ALWAYS comes across as not liking the cycling community regardless of his intentions.
