what is the law for riding on main roads in snow

we have to outrun them or they could get seized in Oregon. Fortunately the cops are usually someplace warmer than a patrol car and know they can't catch ya anyway haha

they have given up chasing snowmobiles who they KNOW they can't catch... it's great fun to go get a six pack after dark this way....

I say it's legal as long as they don't catch you.:biggrin: All kidding aside, I have been riding my ATVs on the snow covered roads around here since I was a kid, I have yet to have any problems with cops telling me that I can't do that. I even ride on the bare roads to get to a local trail system near my house. I have even passed cops on my way. I figure as long as I am not riding like a jackass, I will be ok. I just keep it at a safe reasonable speed, use hand signals, wear a helmet and I don't have problems. When I reach the dirt however, safe reasonable speeds are no longer necessary.

In lower NY, don't get caught! Lst year I pulled out of my driveway and down the road...cop lights went on. I took off and went back home that night. They'll impound your atv. Like DD said, don;t get caught!

Some places upstate NY allow for it though, so check with local authorities.
