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As far as the license, that definitely needs repealed.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 $$$.

      This week, the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) plans to outline proposed policy changes for ATV trails on state forest lands.  They will also be seeking public comment.
      Pennsylvania has more than 260 miles of ATV trails in state forests. The department is reviewing its policy to respond to increasing demands for riding opportunities and well as interest from local governments in expanding tourism.
      “The purpose of the policy is to provide guidance to DCNR when acquiring, developing and managing lands for ATV use by the public,” Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn said.
      There had been a moratorium on new trail development, but the policy revisions now authorize DCNR to consider new ATV trails and connectors on state forest lands.
      “New ATV trails will be considered, while still balancing the protection of natural resources as outlined in the Environmental Rights Amendment to the Pennsylvania Constitution, and the needs of all types of recreational users on DCNR lands,” Dunn said.
      In a 2016 survey of ATV users, more than 4,800 responded with many indicating a strong desire for more long-distance trails. Pennsylvania has around 285,000 registered ATVs. On state forest lands, ATV riding is allowed only on designated trails.
      Public comment will be taken at a meeting in Harrisburg Wednesday, January 22, from 10 a.m. to noon in Room 105 of the Rachel Carson State Office Building. Written comments can be submitted to [email protected]
      The deadline to submit comments is March 27.
      More information about ATV riding is on the DCNR website.

      I'm looking for people to ride with. I live in the GTA, but often ride Haliburton or Kawartha trails, and have recently discovered a bunch of trails that don't belong to any club, if anyone is looking to ride.

      Went shopping on Saturday, picked up another Kawasaki Bayou 220 and a Yamaha Timber Wolf 250
      I really should sell some of these but they are a lot of fun to find, fix and ride
      Of course neither of them run but that's part of the fun!  Az

      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?
