This just went into effect yesterday.

Four counties in southwestern Colorado that passed a law requiring driver's licenses and liability insurance for ATV riders want the state to enact similar requirements.

Officials in San Juan, Hinsdale, Ouray and San Miguel counties enacted the stricter law in 2006 to maintain safety on the Alpine Loop, a scenic, rugged trail through the San Juan Mountains that links Silverton, Telluride, Ouray and Lake City that has become a popular tourist attraction.

State law does not require liability insurance and allows children as young as 10 to operate ATVs.

A ranger last year issued 250 warnings and 15 citations, which carry a $150 fine. Officials say many visiting the area are caught off-guard by the local requirement and have threatened to visit other areas of the state.

Yeah that sounds pretty gay..a license? So much for family outings..That'll never happen, parents want to get their kids on little 50s and stuff, + if they did it and if other states followed (Which they wont) then all the manufacturers will lose alot of money off the fact that no one will be able to ride the little bikes..

I can probly remember atleast 10 if not 15 kids I saw at the local riding spot this last weekend (out of like 30-40 people total) that didnt have their licenses.alot of kids on little 50s and stuff

Thats retarded! Speaking of retarded ATV laws, Idaho just made it law that all off road vechiles have to have a license plate. Who wants to ugly up their ride with a stupid plate, not to mention theres no place for one. What was wrong with just an off road sticker. DUMB, DUMB, DUMB it was defenatly developed by someone who doesn't ride.

We have to have plates here in PA as well, but mine pretty much stays in the back of my truck. Our off road governing body (DCNR) misappropriates funds on a colossal scale. I do not plan on displaying my plate again or renewing registration simply to have my money fall in to an account that does not promote or help out sport.

As far as the license, that definitely needs repealed. I'm 29 and haven't had a license since 2004, does that mean I wouldn't be able to ride a quad in the dirt?! When families stop coming because the kids can't ride, someone will be missing that tourist $$$.

      I have a 1988 300 Honda FourTrax, All wheel drive.
      My brother and I were fixing up this quad. We put a brand new battery and fuses in and it was running fine until we put the quad into reverse. As soon as it was put into reverse all of the electrical cut out and power wasn't making it to the head unit anymore and both of the brand new fuses popped. We figured there might have been a short from the starter or solenoids, but they are all working properly. At this point we don't know where to start looking for where the short could be. I'm just wondering if anybody has had the same issue or knows of similar issues that could cause these electrical shorts?

      Not satisfied with the commercially available versions, Jonathan recently built an ATV spring compressor.
      In this video, he demonstrates using it to remove & re-install the spring on an ATV coil-over shock absorber.
      Mistake in video - the coil-over shock is not quite a McPherson strut.
      If you are inspired to build your own spring compressor, feel welcome to use any ideas from this video.
      Thanks for watching! Resurgence Small Engine Inc.

      Gibbs Technologies Ltd, the world’s only High Speed Amphibian (HSA) technology specialist, today unveiled a prototype of the first commercially viable high-speed amphibian Quadbike/All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) - Quadski.
      Quadski is the third demonstration of Gibbs’ HSA technology following the successes of the Aquada and the Humdinga. It is capable of travelling up to 50 mph (72 kph) on land and water and makes the transition at the flick of a switch.
      Commenting on the launch of the Quadski prototype, Alan Gibbs, the founder of UK based Gibbs Technologies Ltd. said, “Quadski is both exciting and practical with a multitude of uses”.
      “I know consumers will love the fun of driving a Quadski on land one minute and then head straight into the sea or river the next. But there is a very serious side to Quadski as well: emergency services and aid workers will be able to reach areas and people no two or four wheel drive vehicle could reach.”
