The bill creates a misdemeanor for riding illegally on federal land, with a $100 fine and a 10-point hit on hunting or fishing licenses if the violator was hunting or fishing at the time. In wilderness areas, the penalties go up to $200 and 15 points[/b]
Wow! That's a lot of bonus points down the tubes!

Does anyone know what's defined as illegal riding in the Bill?

IMHO, the bill does not change already existing law but puts some backbone into it for those who continue to break the law. I think it is a federal crime to ride an OHV in designated wilderness areas, but it rarely enforced. As I ahve said before tags, plates or some means of identifying individual OHV's would be good start. I have reported to LEO the visual description of offendors I have witnessed and they just laughed... Very hard to pick out one green ATV from another...

I believe all ATV's must purchase a permit to ride in CO now. I think they are tired of all the MN and UT guys that just ride all over the kingdom.
