    Here in Washington they take your money and still don’t let you ride.
    Last year I purchased a brand new Polaris Ranger 1000XP. I paid to have all the turn signals, mirrors, etc installed so it would pass inspection for street use. Then I paid $50.00 for an inspection to certify it as ‘road worthy’. Then the state charged me for an ‘off road’ license, and then again for an ‘on road’ license. Both separate. I’m into this thing for almost $20 grand now.
    In October I took it hunting and while parking my truck in the National Forest the game warden stopped and told me that it is illegal to ride any roads in the Okanogan Wenatchee National Forest. Five minutes later a Forest Service cop stopped by and told me the same thing, only with the threat of a ticket if I unloaded it from the trailer. After doing some research I've found you have to check with the city, county, state, and or federal government to see the list of roads or trails that each jurisdiction covers. Most of the dirt Forest Service roads in Washington are closed to OHV’s even if they are licensed as street legal. I attached a photo from Chelan county’s website of the county owned roads they allow OHV’s to use. If you look closely most of them don’t even connect with each other causing you to push you ATV down the street to where they are once again legal.
    Just make sure you don’t forget your Discover Pass or your Washington State Dept of Wildlife Access Pass, which is also required for any motorized vehicle going to any park of forested area.
    Anyone interested in a one year old Polaris Ranger?

Utah's non-resident OHV requirement becomes effective on 1 January 2020. Utah's cost will be $30. At $30 dollars per vehicle, my travels to Utah in the future may be less. The cost depending on how many motorcycle's I would bring could be between $60-$90. This may be our last year of riding in Utah. I'm not sure I want to pay this for a weeks worth of riding and could end any future TW gatherings in Utah for the Admirals. Same goes for anyone who wants to ride in any state outside of their own if reciprocity is no longer valid. For us, Oregon would be the exception since we are so close and ride their a lot. We'll choke down the Oregon OHV cost because our riding time there is way more than 1 week(ish) like it is in Utah.
    The question is... when or where do you NEED an OHV sticker vs. just a license plate?

    Washington state: a street plated dual-sport motorcycle is good in most places on or off-road, including roads and trails in national forests and federal lands, with just a street plate. Our OHV "sticker" is traditionally for a non-plated dirt bike. We don't sell a non-resident OHV "sticker". The only places that you would need to supplement your street plate are state owned DNR lands and ORV Parks. This supplementation can be accomplished by purchasing a Washington State Discover Pass (https://discoverpass.wa.gov) for $11.50/day or $35/year, resident or not.

    I understand Oregon and Utah to be the same way, correct me if I am mistaken,. On our TW Father's Day gathering in Oregon last year, we needed to get Oregon's 2-year OHV sticker because we were riding inside of a state OHV area. In Utah, again, on our gatherings we've never needed a OHV sticker because almost all of our riding has been done on federal land. If you go to a state OHV area, then yes, you will need their sticker. Idaho seems to simply require the OHV sticker for riding trails on any public lands. For $12.50/year, I'm okay with that.

    Someone needs to compile a booklet. I’ve found when you call the the different agency’s or talk to the enforcement personal (cops), some of them are completely unaware of the rules. Unfortunately some folks will be glad to write you a ticket whether you are violating a law or not. Most likely you will be violating something or other and not know it. Too much confusion, Too many differing jurisdictions. Too many rules. Too many fee’s.

    Idaho has always been a little different even with motorcycles with street plates. Speaking of M/C's, UTV's, ATV's etc, you have to get an OHV sticker if riding a trail. Because of the law change this will also include not residents.

    If we have a house warming TW200 gathering in June for exampe (hint, hint), the old rule will still apply and if Idaho has/had reciprocity with another state then the non-resident would not have to get an Idaho OHV sticker if they have one from their home state. If you don't have an OHV sticker from Washington State then you would have to get an Idaho OHV sticker. After 1 July it won't matter and everyone will have to get one.

    Ever notice these new User Fees tend to be in Sanctuary City permissive states? Guess they need more money from the law abiding to shelter those foreigners who break our laws.
    California should follow suite soon, especially if the new "If you want them, you can have them" policy of bussing illegals to outside Nancy Pilose's walled compound is implemented.
    I better get ready to bend over.

    Send a bus load to Gavin Newsom's neighborhood too. Hint: Its not the Governor's Mansion. Its in Fair Oaks. Just 15 miles from Sacramento. (He could have walked to work but now he drives -- the planet be damned!) The new 12.000 square foot house, on 8.2 acre lot, has been sited as being more "kid friendly" with such amenities as a tennis court, wine cellar, hot tub, pool, and separate guest quarters -- perfect for an illegal family to take refuge. Anybody want to bet the only illegals that sees the inside of those quarters will be cleaning it?

    Oh bullshit and stop trying to make everything about your fucking politics! Christ I am so sick of it. Idaho is implementing a new policy, and they are about as sanctuary friendly as you are, so what's your answer to that... Yeah, that's what I thought, more bullshit.

    Gastone….I am a retired Transportation Systems Manager for the Forest Service who worked on both the Mt Baker Snoqualmie and the Wenatchee Okanogan National Forests...…. and open Forest Development Roads are open to vehicles that are operated by a licensed driver/rider and licensed for highway use by the State ....without getting too far in the weeds....your plated Polaris has the same rights as your plated TW......and for that matter your pickup …….see Larry's post #12....

    Since you mentioned hunting.....I am going to guess that you may have been in a Green Dot Area where all the roads are closed to motorized use except those identified with Green Dot markers....there should have been a sign and a map to that effect at the road entrance....that is the only place I can think of that a Warden would issue a ticket for vehicle use on a Forest Service Road.

    If he did I might consider voting for him but no, he travels to work in a small caravan of Chevy Suburbans
