That's correct..also live in Phx and that's all you need. I put one of those small hand held air horns on mine that you get from walmart, zip tied it to the handle bars and it worked fine ( plus no electrical work required), naturally you need to have insurance as well.

thats nothing compared to here. If they see you touch any part of a road/ on state land/ riding without permission and you dont run its an instant impound and a series of fines. one for being on road, one for running etc.

but everyone has enough common sense here to run since we all know the trails. :smile:

When I was living back in NY riding on the street was not an option as was riding in the trails...in NY it's illegal to ride on any property unless you own it or have permission to ride there...if you get caught riding on state property they confiscate the bike and give tons of tickets.. (yes my brother got busted so I know!) but out here in AZ it's a totally different story

yea we have permission for everything we ride on. just we have to cross ONE road to egt there. and now one farmer is letting hunters on his land so my friend has to ride down 5 miles of abandoned road to get to there. actually alot of fun to ride that road. but kinda nerve racking.

just a week or two ago i had a run in with a fire marshal. me and a friend(who was on my old 01 300 ex lol) had to ride down 20 ft of road to my dads friends trails(with permission) and ofcourse there is a damn fire marshal.

What state do you live in? I hate NY, we can't even try to make them legal.

Same in New York. Except here if you touch the road, OR are riding on ANY land without permission they automatically take the quad(impound) And depending on what you did they give you a series of tickets.

My friends was on road running from cops. She went down swinging(probably not smart) so she got impounded resisting arrest, riding on the roads, and assaulting a police officer. Her dads a cop though so she got out of everything lucky betch.
