    Looking at some new Side By Sides has got me thinking of getting one. I've been told in some states they can be made street legal. Anyone know if Tennessee is one of those states?

    I don't think so according to this site which offers ATV Laws by State...

    "ATV use on highways is prohibited, except to cross these roads."



    This site offers Motorcycle Laws by State for future reference.

    There's an offroading shop that does a lot of radio ads to street legalize side-by-sides here, in Tennessee. All I think they do is throw the same stuff on there that makes our bikes street. Seems perfectly legal here with that. Just some mirrors, lights, horn and a tag and it seems to be working.



    I met a guy in some Bombardier contraption on the square just a couple weeks ago.

    One of the guys on the KLR forum posted a picture of a street legal Razor on the Dragon!! Now that's worth looking into!

    Oh, I hadn't considered the Razor at all. A friend actually had one street legal but sold it after awhile. I never drove the thing but he seemed to have fun. Outran the police up into the trails at one point.

    Here's a thread on another forum about a street legal Razr. It just might be possible after all.



    P.S. Is it okay to post links to other forums?

    If it has 4 wheels, it is a car or truck. Getting one to meet state guidelines is easy, but getting one to meet federal safety and emissions guidelines is difficult and expensive. Not saying it can't be done, but unless that $100,000 fee for testing is amortized across many units, the cost is prohibitive.

    In my area in Mass, if it's not a Lexus, you are looked on with suspicion. If you can get to the Hatfield-McCoy Recreational Area it seems a lot more hospitable. It seems like it would be great to drive anywhere in the local area on your ORV. Gary
