Here in New York Im required to register and insure each machine.
The reg is $14 bucks and the ins is $109 bucks.
That being said I can legally ride across the main highway and at an angle from trail to trail no more than 150 feet on the paved highway.
I have a plate on all the atvs and it sounds like crap but the law likes to see the attempt and respect of the DMV wishes.
When it snows and the roads are covered they wont plow till early morning to save on the overtime so all nite the roads are nice and covered. I can pull to a stopsign or a redlight on the quad and if the troop sees my plate he waves me and goes on but if I aint got a plate he pursues.He dont catch but now hes lookin for a particular quad and wont be so slow next time.
Its a way for the state to generate some money PLUS.......seein how they get stolen all thw while its also another way for finding the theiving scum.
