To run forest service trail with a trail permit it has to be registered. I need to do all that to be registered.
Same with a snowmobile on snow trails or snowed in forest service roads. Still may not be able to get it "Licensed" to go on any state, county, or municipal roads. BLM number roads are not considered public roads or trail I can run on them as it is now, no registration needed.Confused
I could leave it but many BLM roads and trails pass though state land then I would be blocked.Ouch

Is all that so you can get a trail permit? That sounds more like what it takes to drive it on the street/highway. Kinda like a home made car.

The motor Is not as loud as my lawnmower.
Is it under the 84 decibels to require hearing protection???
The dog is kinda quiet going over dirt, gavel is a different story. But that is track noise, it does have carbide cleats that are about 3" apart covering the track.
PS, the Forest service trails manager said I could not run it in a stage 1 fire or over do to the spark possibility from them. That make sense.
I'm getting two motor cycle E horns.
Sound like I have to get inspected and get a Sheriffs tittle after I get a VIN #.
Then the fees start I bet it will a few hundred bucks to get my toy papered up.Ouch
But it's a one time thing.
After all this then I have to talk them in to a snowmobile pass too.Confused

What is the engine noise level? Like a lawnmower maybe? Do you need ear protection to drive? The horn will have to be louder than that to be effective. I'd think anyone could hear the engine noise long before they see you making an horn a suplerious item!
In AZ they require an audible device for ATV's used on roads along with lights/brakes. It can be a whistle, bicycle horn (squeeze rubber bulb type), canned air horn or even an electric horn. Just so it's loud 'nuff to be heard over machine noise.

I have to meet with the CO treasure on Monday to try to register the M dog. I think I will need lights, tail lights, brakes, brake lights, and a mirror. I have all of them now but the mirror which I have ordered. I have flat gray paint coming too.Clap

AND a horn I don't have a horn yet, DANG

Nice

I didn't think about lights. As early as it gets dark in the winter months I'm sure they will come in handy.

If you don't know if it's certified the forest ranger or whoever probably won't either. 

I'm really good at playing dumb.

Actually it is a brake handle off a bike. Plenty long to use your palm too.

I don't think it can be Licensed as anything.
I'll never be able to drive it on county ,city, or us roads. I'll have to get a "trails" permit $25 to run on ATV trails, AND a snowmobile pass $25 to run it on snowmobile trails. I should not need anything but a citified spark arrester to run on BLM roads.Shocked

the handle bar UPgrade looks to be a good idea. The brake system too!
Does that type of machine have to be licensed like an ATV or cycle or snowmobile??????????

Well the muddy dog is working so well I had to do some up grades.
The handle bars I had where from a rototiller and not very comfortable to hang on to and steer. The brake was just a leaver down on the shank of the Handle bars, worked so good You would fall off trying to use it gently.
SO...
New bars straight across a little wider and slightly swept to the back. Now you can lean on them or pull your self back on.
I switched the position of the accelerator from finger pull to thumb push, nicer.
I put the brake on the grip part of the new bars. Now you can use it as needed not just ON or OFF.
Seems much better all round.
