HALL OF SHAME
Illegal trespass and destruction of private property
and the Pacific Crest Trail
Go KRATTIGER #21 !! It is admirable to loyally support a family member who races dirt bikes. But wearing that jacket with their name and number while joyriding on the Pacific Crest Trail is not only tacky, but shameful.
After winning a Bronze Metal in the 2012 X-Games, Cory Graffunder's career took a nose dive, along with his integrity. The individual below thinks nothing of joyriding the Pacific Crest Trail in Kern County for amusement. He couldn't care less that his irresponsible behavior not only damages the trail, but also threatens the safety of hikers and equestrians. We're sure sponsors will not be pleased with his representing their products. Someone owes Kern County an apology.

Southern California dirt bike racer Chris Swanson loves to fly high wearing his AXO pants and funky blue polyester Spiderman jersey. But Swanson is no superhero when he rides his dirt bike on the Pacific Crest Trail. Chris, is that you or your evil twin?

Camarillo dirt bike racer Kevin Murphy has shamed his sponsors and embarrassed his Kern County fans by joyriding on the Pacific Crest Trail. Kev the Rev was easy to identify, largely because of that roguish grin, poor fashion choices, and his propensity to wear the same clothes over and over.

Dirt biker sends email to ORV WATCH threatening PCT hikers, presumably those with cameras. Typical of bullies, the email is anonymous with poor spelling.

Just from what I have seen on your website you are a completely worthless ignorant closed minded dumb ass. You have no idea what your talking about. You don't understand the difference between riding legally and illegally. Your a typical old closed minded Tehachapi resident who has nothing better to do then harass dirt bike riders. We are going to continue to ride and dumbasses like you aren't going to stop us. Hope to see you on the trails one day. You will sure regret it."

The Code of (Mis) Conduct
Glen, a member of the Kern Recreational Land Owners Association, was seen riding his dirt bike on the Pacific Crest Trail with a buddy. They rode through posted private property after which they spent a bromantic afternoon gutting closed BLM land in the Tehachapi Mountains with repeated hill climbs.

Can someone please help Chris find his way home? Chris said he rode his dirt bike all the way from Lake Isabella to Tehachapi without going on a paved road. The reason why he drove around 'No Trespassing' gates and fences and through 'No OHVs' signed property is that, "I can't find my way home." How about a Money Bomb to buy Chris a map and a GPS? Sheriff's incident report submitted.

Bob Burd is an unethical adventurer. He takes folks on hiking & driving tours even if the tour involves deliberate trespass through signed private property and areas closed to mechanized vehicles. Call law enforcement if you see this bad apple crawling around where he doesn't belong.
Here is a photo of Bob Burd's SUV. Be on the lookout for this roving serial trespasser.

What are two nice Jewish boys doing in a place like this?
According to rural Tehachapi residents, Yosef Moshe and Amihud Haran, both inland empire businessmen, were allegedly joyriding their dirt bikes on signed private property and on ranch land in a private community. The entrance to the community is well-signed with No Trespassing signs. These two also reportedly trespassed through a Wind Farm where fencing had been cut.
If this is true,shame on you klumnik khazers. You wouldn't want dirt bikers trespassing in your Shtetl, would you? Your Bubby will not be proud of your behavior. Incident Report submitted to Kern County Sheriff's Department.

Bakersfield Mayor Harvey Hall will not be happy to learn that Hall's Ambulance Paramedic Brad Quintana is digging up an out-of-town property owner's land to create his own personal dirt bike playground. Neighboring Tehachapi residents complained about noise and nuisance created by Quintana and friends. The owner of the property is disgusted to learn that his property is being abused by Quintana in his absence. Kern County Sheriff's Report is in process.
What goes up, must come down, Paramedic Quintana, and that would be you.
While United States Military Captain Ryan Voznick was out celebrating his recent promotion, someone borrowed his dirt bike, helmet and clothing, and rode illegally down the Pacific Crest Trail.
