I was out riding the rappy on the streets of my neighborhood in the bike lanes today. (I live in a gated community with guards) Anyways, I rode back to my house and noticed a guy sitting at my house, right by my driveway staring at me. I turned the rappy off and got off to check it over and noticed he kept on staring at me in his car. So after a few minutes he starts up and starts to drive away, so I hop back on and follow him at a distance to see where he lives. Well, he goes straight to a guard and tattletells on me and trys to get me in trouble. The guard talked to me and said I have to have it licensed to ride it in the neighborhood.

I want to ask you guys, how do you go about getting it licensed?

I have searched for websites to see and can't find any on Tennessee?!?

I really wanna do it just to piss this guy off! He is an old, fat, retired guy that likes to tattle on anyone that does something slightly wrong.

It must be a Silver Spoon Act of 1973.

:lol:

Regardless, in any state, if you are operating off road vehicle on public use highways, then you are in violation of the law. If your state allows offroad vehicles to be used on roadways, then it must meet guidlines for road operation (Signals, mirrors, horn, etc)

You may contact your local highway patrol office and ask them. Don't get your bike impounded.

Here in California, I live in a gated area. That means my roads are not paid for by the state. They are private. So I can ride on them without getting a ticket. Here how you tell if the gated area is private or public, the street signs tell you. If it has small writing on it saying the "city of " then it's public paid for. Hope this helps you :thumbsup:

Florida is a definite "no". In FLorida if a vehicle is titled as an ORV, you cannot go about making it "street legal". I wanted to turn a YZF450 into a motard and make it street legal, I spoke with the individual in Miami-Dade County that inspects vehicles, such as home made choppers, they advised, not in this state. :'(

Missouri says you have to have blinkers, headlights, tail lights, lighted licence plate, dot approved tires, mirrors, horn, and speedometer. After you get all these, the highway patrol inspects it. If you meet the requirements, you can retitle it as an on-road vehicle, then apply for licence. You are pretty much making it a four-wheeled motorcycle. I would imagine that some states do something like this. You might check with DMV, Highway Patrol, your County Courthouse, or as always :google:.

I'd check with your local DMV.

I'm officially 100% street legal in AZ as of tonight. I've got mirror on and horn hooked up.

In AZ you sign a piece of paper that says you'll make it legal and they hand you a motorcycle plate. No inspection. The only inspection will be emissions 5-6 years from now.

If I'm going to drive this any real amount on the street I'm going to get another set of wheels / tires for the street. Otherwise I'll abuse my knobbies :)

Make sure you video his response when he finds the pooh. That would be priceless.

Get a can of self expanding foam and fill up the muffler on his car. It'll be invisible from the outside, and his car will not run. No mechanic will check for an exhaust blockage first, his bill will be huge. I've always wanted an excuse to do this, let me live vicariously through you.
