I can see both sides of it, to some extent. BUT, the bike problem needs to be addressed. I like motorcycles, and those folks should have a right to ride in parts of the BLM land. But, on the trails along the canyon, and on the slopes of the canyons is not the place for it. Many people, including a lot of kids, hike those trails. Visibility around many of the curves is nearly zero. What happens when one of those idiots knock a kid over the edge? (Or anyone else...you nearly got it, Jobe.) When an innocent hiker/soaker/whatever gets killed by a biker riding where they shouldn't be, do you think the springs will remain open? When an environmental group jumps on the issue of a fragile riparian zone in a desert environment (not to mention a trout stream with rare toads) being torn up by motorcycles, they'll have a field day, and then, do you think the springs will remain open? In a situation where you feel unsafe may not be the time to call 911, but afterward, a formal complaint does need to be made...a whole group of them. If 20 people complain about the same event, the authorities will have a hard time ignoring it. If word gets out that 20 people complained, a handful of idiots won't feel so safe to do these things.
