That's preferred, with big-ass steel-pipe posts set 3' deep
in concrete. The bridge *must* be too narrow, way too
narrow, for quads. If it's wider, and you put up posts,
some dork will "remove" the posts with his "wench"--see any
quad forum for the care, feeding, and mounting of "wenches",
and which "wench" to buy.
If they're steel posts that can't be "wenched" out, some
dork will bring an cutting torch. Think I'm kidding? I know
a place where it happened. Of course, if there's *any* way
to bypass the bridge to get to the trail, all bets are off.
Damn the resource impacts, full snail-pace ahead.
I wonder if manufacturers and powersport dealers would
be willing to pay for (cost-share by adding a buck to the
purchase price) and put a tag with something like the
following on every dirt bike, ATV, and RUV sold.
Ever seen these cool motion-activiated big-game cameras?
Hunters use them to monitor game trails & watering holes for
trophy animals. You can get 'em pretty cheap now-a-days,
film or digital. Nudge, nudge, wink, wink.
