The news of California’s proposed ban on dirt bikes has caused a stir in the off-road community. Dirt N Iron, a well-known YouTube personality, recently conducted research that revealed the state’s plan to phase out the use of dirt bikes by 2035. This has sparked outrage among dirt bike enthusiasts, who argue that the ban would have a negative impact on the economy and jobs in the outdoor recreation industry. Many are calling for a petition to prevent the ban from becoming law. While some believe that the ban is necessary to protect the environment and reduce emissions, others see it as a blow to the freedom of outdoor recreation. If the ban goes into effect, it could lead to an increase in illegal off-road riding and enforcement challenges. The debate over the balance between preserving the environment and enjoying outdoor activities continues, and the future of dirt bikes in California remains uncertain.
