I just find it amusing that they come in and gripe about a topic they have no interest in.

its a cultural learning exercise for us wimpy pussy brits. because we arent allowed guns over here, we dont have to worry about owning shotguns to defend ourselves against other people with guns.
sure we have gun crime in some areas but in most places we dont.

theres so many idiots over here, if you could get hold of assault rifles and shit over here, then yes, i probably would have a shotgun because theres no way id trust other people with guns.

its a different world. personally i dont know if id feel comfortable living somewhere where i had to own a personal arsenal just to feel safe in my own home, but then youve all grown up like that so yeah its a different world.

enjoy your guns and knives and all that, i dont get it but meh if i get to fire a real gun one day perhaps itll click and ill understand. i like playing computer games where you shoot people, i dont reckon i could shoot another human though except in extreme circumstances (id have to shoot legs and arms, couldnt live with myself tearing someones organs up) and im vegetarian so no use to me for hunting

i'd rather nobody found a spot i was trying to keep on the down low.

of course.

yet in the eventuality that some riders do happen to discover them by accident would your first instinct be to run at them with a shovel braveheart style telling them to fuck off your jumps?
if other people riding them became a concern you could use strategically placed chains to limit their use. id be talking to the visiting riders first though to see if theyre safe or not, and likewise if i was visiting trails that werent mine and the locals turned up, id be introducing myself and explaining how we found them by accident, complementing the builders on the effort put in and how good they are etc.

you never know, those random guys you find riding your jumps one day could end up becoming good friends with you, they could end up helping out with digging, they might have their own trails and invite you to ride and so on.

there are still other riders out there with good intentions, just saying

if there was noone around, and you were careful and didnt fuck it up i dont see why its a problem having a ride of them.
obviously it would be less awkward if you knew the guys who made em, but you can make some inquiries and try to get in touch with the people who built them before you go down again.
i can understand that some people dont want anyone else having fun who didnt put the work in, but at the same time would you rather some other bmxers stumble upon your trails and be stoked on how good they are, or some mx riders tearing the place to bits?
respect works both ways
