The coast, not so much. Dirt bikes aren't much fun in rain forest and rocks.
Glad to know that the Eco hysteria did not arrive there. The guys that voyage to faraway places on motorcycle or 4/4 are the guys that love most nature and the ones that care more for its preservation.
Actually I liked to go fast on the open country but I loved the forest, rain and difficult trails. If you could walk there, probably I could pass with the motorcycle. Me and a friend used to make on motorcycle pedestrian mountain trails. Guess I am to old for that now
