Good point!  The Wiki defines a path as "a generic path, either multi-use or 
unspecified usage, open to all non-motorized vehicles."[0]  I wonder if there 
is a better way to describe a way that can be used for motorcycles but not a 
car or truck or if we should broaden our definition of 'path' and then allow 
more specific tags to come later by on the ground surveys.
