So maybe we should just work with DMVs to recycle some of these street-approved motorcycles with titles lying around in scrap yards. Maybe a destroyed Yamaha R6 in the end looks a lot like a 450cc Raptor, if you follow me. As long as all the required documents seem correct, that`s all most DMV employees will take care of. He happened to have a crashed Honda CBR 1100 that he wanted to rebuild. Checking the rules at the State Department of Motor Vehicles in Texas gave him an idea. He asked if adding wheels to his converted bike would prevent him from being legal on the road or qualifying for a license. For better corners, Jeremy installed A-wishbones and wider rear axles. Of course, he also drove with wider wheels and road tires. Tires are not very good for sand, but they adhere well for busy dirt roads. The big problem with road-approved ATVs seems to be the fact that most ATVs are intended exclusively for off-road use – they don`t meet DOT rules and aren`t exposed. Like off-road motorcycles. Now, some states and municipalities with high ATV traffic have changed some laws to allow legal ATVs on the street. Unfortunately, this does not help the rest of us.
His Yamaha Raptor 700 is a good quad bike to legalize the road as it has enough power to travel at speeds above 70 miles per hour. To improve performance, Jeremy added a powerful exhaust and intake system, fuel control and a warmer camshaft. It turns out – No! – That would not be the case! Since it was titled as a legal motorcycle for the road, the converted motorcycle would also bear its title as long as it met standard motorcycle safety regulations. The end result is what you see here. An authorized, insured and legal road quad! Can you say “Adventure Tour”? Road quads are common in most parts of the world – of course, they don`t have enlightened transport agencies and caring liability lawyers like us. Road quads are about as rare as common sense in government. This is what the owner of Hi-Power Quads discovered after several attempts to authorize a 4-wheeler approved for the street. Then he fell on a path! Polaris Razor S with a legal quad conversion kit for the street. This one is from Michigan, where I believe they allow homologated ATVs on the street in some areas.
It is equipped with lights, horn, turn signals, brake lights and a full windshield with windshield wipers. Or maybe Yamaha R6 (or whatever?) donates its parts to a conversion kit that looks like the one in this photo. (Enterprising processors please contact me – let`s talk about it!) Legal road title with road approval – must be a motorcycle legal for the road – (which looks like a quad bike!). Here is another version of legal street quads – the buggy. I`ve seen several with license plates, but I`ve been told it depends a lot on how rigorous the DMV of your condition is. Many owners take the build or kit car route to obtain titles and licenses for buggies. This can probably be done in most places – you just need to use government-approved terminology. Tell them “kit car” – not “new Chinese buggy”. Legal Street ATVs – Report on street ATVs from around the world. Jeremy Othelet is a Dirt Wheels reader who lives in Margut, France. In his country, mountain bikes can be made allowed to ride with the appropriate equipment. As you can see here, Jeremy has turn signals, mirrors and a license plate on his quad.
One of the latest shots is this side-by-side road homologation that started as Polaris RZR XP1000 and now looks like a VW Baja bug! Street Legal 4wheelers – Where are they legal? More video and photos. Most UTVs and side-by-sides could potentially slip under the rules of kit cars like buggies. Again – you have to use the right words at DMV. The new electric Polaris Ranger can be considered a “green” vehicle in some places. This would make him eligible for legal driving on the road.
