Unhappy I cant find anywhere to ride in utah

I have been trying to find a place to ride, I got a used cag mta1 from a friend about 2 years ago and it they were legal in the state of Utah. a Week after I got it They freaking made them illegal. well i said eff it and it sat for 2 years.

and i started riding and riding I would ride on the streets to get to a parking lot and play aroung and practice hardcore cornering. well i drove over to a empty parking lot and when i do that I make sure to look if anyone is around but I know because in utah theres a lot of people that like to call the cops on me because i like to have fun. and its happend to me 3 times. first time i just got it and was troubleshooting it in the church parking lot behind my house for some problems to go fix and i wasnt driving aggressavly or anything and some ahole calls the cops on me for recklessly driving. well i got a warning from a cop and he said if he saw me on it again he would impound for more than its worth and fine me. so thats when i put it away for 2 years. Then I found a Emmick Go kart chassie and was like oh yea build a fast racing go kart with a 7 h briggs and stration. put a big muffler on it. found a parking lot. I was having a blast sliding my kart around then I see a cop on the other side of the parking lot appear. im like great he drives over and makes me push it home. and that was because somone called the cops on me the cop didnt really care he was just doing his job. he thought the kart was cool and got my warning. great both my toys have warnings on them . so 2 years later I got my cag out and got all excited about it. got performance parts and made it a lot faster and new body kit and its all rebuilt clean and new. today I went and road it in a parking lot did 2 laps in a empty parking lot and suddenly i become a criminal. cops come I get another warning they didnt say anything about the 2 years ago warning. great now I have nowhere to ride. nomatter what vacant parking lot I go to some fu**face calls the cops on me to ruin my fun.

so the only place i can find to ride my go kart is miller motorsports park and it is not afforadable 50 bucks for like 2 hours and you can only go on certain days and you practice with the moto gp bikes. and ive called around and talked to people about tracks and I cant find anything for my bike. I live In Sandy city UT
oh and im looking for fellow pocket bike rider that live near here that I can race and ride with.

heres a fun gokart story because I am having fun telling stories
oh and haha I P15Sed off a cop because I was in my go kart and drove over to empty parking lot. well it looked empty but there was a cop in the corner hiding behind a building. the second I saw the cop I flipped around drove to the street. killed it and started walking it home expecting a cop to rollup behind me. no he didnt I thought that was weird. so I hoped back in it and slowly came close to him to where I can see him. Haha hes sleeping in his car. well that explains why hes hiding. so did a couple laps in front of him. Me knowing when he wakes hes gonna want to pull me over but I have knowledge that will make him not want to deal with me. then on like my 4th lap around the parking lot I got a little close to his car and blasted by. that woke him up. he turned his lights on and started following me. I killed it and got out as the cop is walking over to me and it made him mad because I was taunting him while he was asleep he was saying hes was gonna impound it and write me a ticket for somthing I cant remember. Then I told him I know why he was sitting in a corner hiding. you were sleeping on duty. that made him realize crap he could get me fired. so he left me with a little warning lol didnt take my name or anything.

Re: I cant find anywhere to ride in utah

If you are having trouble with neighbors calling the cops on you for riding in an empty parking lot then contact whoever owns or is in charge of the parking lot and ask them for written permission. If you get it,no one can touch you on that parking lot.

Re: I cant find anywhere to ride in utah

You realize this is a 2 year old thread...

You are new to the forums, look for the posted date.

I have been lucky, cops pass me by, sometimes two and three patrol cars back to back.

I wave at them and keep doing my thing.

It may be small, but I am having BIG TIME FUN!

I understand this is an old forum, I make sure to look at the date to make sure it is a valid source. With that, I commented for one I am still trying to post 10 times. I felt this would be a good place to post because there could be many people out there with this same problem, kids are always looking for a place to ride PB's where they won't get in trouble and/or bother people. If they are in a similar situation as this guy was, I felt it would be good to let them know how to go about it properly. I have had my share of neighbors yelling at me for no reason and have had the cops knocked on my door for riding my own dirt bike in my own yard. Its annoying. So I felt I could extend a helping hand to those that might be in this similar situation. Cause neighbors can be annoying, if you have permission to ride somewhere they can't do anything.
