Do you use an ATV safety (whip pole style) flag?

Just wanted to get an idea of who uses a flag on their atv.

Please post the following information:

Where, what state?

Is it required where you ride?

What style flag are you using? (picture if possible)

Where did you buy the flag, and how much was it?

Would you use a QUADCRAZY flag if we sold them?

Please vote in the poll attached to this thread.

Thanks!

I don't use them always but they are on my ride every time we hit the dunes. I use just the basic orange flag, I bought it for about 15 bucks I think. I got it from our local bike shop. YES, if you guys come out with a whip flag with our logo on it, I will take at least 2. Maybe a 3rd for the wall.

I don't think you guys will sell enough to have them mass produced or anything but see if you guys could have 25 or something made 1st. Then if they don't all sell you're not sitting on hundreds of them. But I will take some.

I don't always use a flag due to riding private property sometimes but when riding any public area it is required. I mainly ride in Missouri and my current flag is just the standard penant shaped orange flag. I think I gave about 12 bucks for it. I agree with sbot, I would get a few at first to see how they sell. I know I'd take two if they come available. I think they may be a great way to spread the quad crazy word! Oh almost forgot, I bought my current flag at the local atv dealership.

Yes, all 4 of our quads have flags on them... We are in California and they are required on the dunes... I like them in the desert just so I can spot our kids! LOL There are pictures in my gallery of the quads with the flags. And yes, I would buy quad crazy flags if they existed! Oh, and edited to add I think my DH got them at our local shop, but I don't know how much they were.

I am the same with the 3 above me. Bought mine, a plain orange one for about 10-15 at the dealership when I bought my quad. Here in SoCal, they're only required in the open riding areas, mainly glamis and Pismo, and other areas where there are dunes. Not required on the trails around here though. And mine's installed on my main pic taken at Sand Lake, OR.

Yes I do use a flag.I live/usually ride in Indiana and sometimes Illinois.The public area I go to most(Badlands in Attica In) requires it.I just leave it on when I ride on private lands;I figure it helps reduce accidents.It's a standard style plain orange flag I got from the dealer.I also have another flag I got from either RM or Motosport;I think they were between 15-20 bucks.I'd get a QC flag if it was available.I'll try to get some pics up one of these days;I'm not real computer friendly(or is my computer not people friendly?:skeptic:)I voted...

I do not think a flag would survive 5 minutes as I went through the woods!

I might get one for my son's new quad though make him easier to see. I would get a QC one though

We only use flags where they are required.(Pismo Beach) Most of our riding is on mountain trails and a flag wouldn't be very practical. Mine came with my quad when I bought it and has the dealers logo on it. I bought 2 more for the kids at about $15 each.

i think a flag ruins the image of the quad if you really have gone far and beyond to make it look good

At the same time if you have a quad that was made into a dune beast it kind of looks naked with out one. It is a safety feature more than an image thing.

I agree, besides most public riding areas don't care about your image. You either sport a flag or don't ride.

I have gone through 2 flags in 2 years. The first one I left it on while doing some trails in the mountains and it snapped. My other one, my quad mysteriously started doing cartwheels after I landed flat from about 15ft up. I found a freak drop off. Didn't have time to react and pull the front up. Landed flat and you can imagine what happened next. Lets just say it ended my day and got me a new helmet. That was last Memorial Day.

      Looking for a used crankshaft (cheap) for a 2003 Honda Recon or 250EX. Several model years will work. I only need the timing chain sprocket, but I can remove it from the old crank.

      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.

      So I was looking at my John Deere today and though, how could I make this cooler. So I tinted the windows. Lol.
       
      As I got home I was staring at my Polaris and the wife’s kfx. I thought I would have to replace the crank because of piston slap on the Polaris. Turns out I just had to adjust the choke cable a tad more. Runs great.
       
      Why do we have insurance if we only need it sometimes, and that’s questionable.

      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?
