Exploiting a loop hole in the law, turn 4 wheeler into rev trike
for a long while I have been trying to get a real 4 wheeler street legal.
the problem is with the state laws, if it has 4 wheels, its a car and has mega more rules.
If it only has 3 wheels, its a trike and can be made from cobbled junk parts held together with duct tape and they will plate it
I wonder if anyone would have insight on changing a 4 wheeler over to a single rear wheel?
[ I can't afford some $40-60,000 canam or super bike modded into a car, rev trike kit ]
I want something I can truly ride year round on and off road. Ive rode enough old Honda 3 wheelers that I know I do not want a traditional motorcycle trike. So the single wheel has to go out back.
Some of you have seen the pics or vids of where I ride across from my house. Well it looks like a creek to many but it's just a small part of a bigger river. So today my friend ask if I have ever crossed the bridge and gone to the other side of the river. My answer was no I went and He said he's been riding there all summer and when he see other people out there they wavy in passing. It turns out it's set up for hunting and hanging out it has tables & chairs an enclosed deer stand.We went in thru a trail when we left we were on the field riding we came out and there was a gate where we ended up comming out and was posted no tresspassing. I'am going to see if I can find out who owns the land and see if they mind us riding there I don't want to get in trouble or disrespect someone. I hope they say YES!! That would give me plenty of trails to ride on.
I agree with this because the first time I took my new four wheeler out years ago, I had no experience in riding. I was going slow and still turned the 4-wheeler over and had a few bruises and was lucky to not get hurt any worse. So it doesn't matter how slow or how fast. It has to do with technique. So everyone please take a safety course for yourself, your family and the ATV community.
A trucker came into a truck stop cafe and placed his order. He said, 'I want three flat tires, a pair of headlights and a pair of running boards.'
The brand new blonde waitress, not wanting to appear stupid, went to the kitchen and said to the cook, 'This guy out there just ordered three flat tires, a pair of headlights and a pair of running Boards. What does he think this place is, an auto parts store?'
'No,' the cook said.. 'Three flat tires mean three pancakes, a pair of headlights is two eggs sunny side up, and running boards are 2 slices of crisp bacon.
'Oh, OK!' said the blonde. She thought about it for a moment and then spooned up a bowl of beans and gave it to the customer.
The trucker asked, 'What are the beans for Blondie?
(I LOVE THIS ONE..........)
She replied, 'I thought while you were waiting for the flat tires, headlights and running boards, you might as well gas up!

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.
