I have to honest and say that when I went up on Thurs evening last week and took photos all the locals were very friendly and non territorial. They did all however say that the paper road was not public and to ask farmer first….as I did not intend going that far I didn’t query it.
Maybe if a lot of riders have since been using it they have lost their patience as they wait for repairs. ?
However as mentioned all locals were good with me.
