You're statement in red is the exact point I'm trying to make!



So what do you do with ATVs that are licensed in other states, I'll bet you wouldn't last 10 minutes on 14 mile with one. Va. and I think Minnesota plate these things.



I'm not saying the driver isn't safe, he's not what I'm concerned about. What I am concerned with is being able to keep the vehicle under control with out hurting a bystander.

The actually requirements from the state are:

However the guy from the SOS who responded to my question sounded like they (state) thought it was not a very good idea but there was nothing they could do to stop someone from licensing for street use.

the point that will probably draw the attention to make them illegal on the road is the fact that they are manufactured on an assembly line as an off road vehicle and not intended for street use. give it some time, there will be laws against plating them and driving them on the road as if they were an assembled vehicle.

some places like canada where you can plate a quad will probably just let them slide in but michigan doesnt seem like the place to let that happen.

Again the rear diff ? comes into the picture, you must have a limited slip or open rear end, so a Ranger or Rhino is legal. The RZR is locked rear (spool) and can,t be made legal!! unless you want to put a new rear end of a diffrent design in the unit.

In regards to the "rear" diff........ which it doesn't specify rear or anything.
I don't see anything that specifies in detail what "differential gear" means. With out written clarification, yes they do have a differential gear.


As far as someone from the SOS opinion, well you know the saying about opinions.
